Editorial Reviews

In Rock Star, by day Chris Cole repairs photocopiers. By night he takes the stage as frontman for a tribute band emulating Steel Dragon, the world's hottest heavy-metal band. Then, suddenly, opportunity rocks: Chris is tapped to become Steel Dragon's new lead singer. Just like that, he goes from small-town nobody to megastar - and just like that, he and his manager/girlfriend Emily enter a world crazier than either imagined. Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Aniston headline and Stephen Herek directs this knowing, chord-crunching, hair-whipping look at '80s arena rock and the price of fame. Filled with style, strut, and the feel of an era, Rock Star gets it right.

Great job by Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Anniston.

First of all let me start off by saying that although Rock star didn't do very well at the box office, I thought it was a lot of fun and it made for an enjoyable hour and three quarters viewing. Loosely based on the life of Tim `Ripper' Owens, the office supplies salesman who replaced Rob Halford in Judas Priest, Rock Star combines satire, morality, romance and a good old fashioned rags to riches storyline.
So what's the plot? Salesman and ordinary working stiff Chris Cole (Mark Wahlberg) and wannabe rock star has been obsessed for years in his devotion to British heavy metal band Steel Dragon. As part of a tribute band, he is derided by his older brother who feels he should get a real job and his devotion to mimicry is so much that even his fellow tribute band members are sick of him, and they eventually dump him. Comforted by his patient and devoted girlfriend (Jennifer Anniston) Chris swears that he will prove them all wrong but he even he is shocked when he is invited to audition as the replacement singer in the band he adores. Of course he wins the gig and so begins a journey through the world of a rock idol, full of drugs, groupies, drink and general excessive behaviour.
I'm not quite sure why this movie wasn't that successful. Sure it's not the greatest movie you will ever see and it offers no original insight but there's also very little to dislike about it. Critics may complain that it's neither full on satire such as `This Is Spinal Tap' or that it is full of clichés but this is a movie that doesn't take itself too seriously and does not try to portray reality.

Format: VHS Tape
Many other reviewers have described the plot of this rags-to-riches parable set in the world of 80s rock and roll. It's best, as many have mentioned, to take the film for what it is, and to enjoy its many positives.
Key among these positives is the skill of Mark Wahlberg, who, in this reviewer's eyes, has never let a movie down. Wahlberg plays the hard-rock naif whose ultimate fantasy comes true when he is tapped as lead singer of his favorite band, Steel Dragon. From his initial audition, where he is so frightened and awed that he is unable to sing for several minutes, to his first concert, where he falls down a dramatic staircase on stage, to his wide-eyed first encounter with a hotel room full of willing groupies, he makes us believe. And that talent allows him to rise above the predictable script and to shine.
Jennifer Aniston plays his devoted manager/girlfriend, and she, too, gives a good performance within the impossible confines of her character. She is likeable and appealing as she watches her man drawn away from her into the evil world of sex, drugs and rock and roll, unable to get him back and unable to make him see what is happening to him as a man and an artist.
The movie plays well, the band is pure 80s, from the sound to the hair to the wretched excess, and the music is fun. There is nothing profound or memorable in the script, but as a viewer, I have to quote Mick Jagger: "It's only rock and roll, but I like it!" Check your mind at the door and enjoy.

For what it's worth, "Rock Star" is an enjoyable fantasy yarn about an aspiring musician who makes it to the big time, only to realize that it's not all about sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll. Sure, the concept is surely not fresh, and the lack of purpose that plagues the movie keeps it from truly soaring. But despite its flaws, it manages to entertain through its bright cast, wonderful execution, and delightful sense of humor.
Carrying the lightweight story on his shoulders like a guitar case full of memories is young Chris Cole (Mark Wahlberg), a twenty-something grunge rocker who still lives with his parents, and gets his jollies by recreating the sense of excitement an audience gets from attending a Steel Dragon concert. Insisting that his band is a "tribute band" rather than a cover band, Chris idolizes the band, particularly the lead singer, Bobby Beers, whom he looks, sounds, and acts like on stage.
With the support of his mother and father, as well as his longtime girlfriend Emily (Jennifer Aniston), Chris finds comfort in his fanaticism, perhaps too much comfort. His drive to recreate each song specifically and correctly makes him overbearing in the eyes of his band members, who, after an on-stage brawl, decide it's time for Chris to walk.
In any other movie, this would be the complete story, ending with reflections by each of the characters on how their experiences together shaped the rest of their lives. But in the world of "Rock Star," this is only the beginning. Just when Chris begins to give up his dreams, he gets a call from none other than Kirk Cuddy, one of Steel Dragon's guitarists, offering him a chance to audition as the new lead singer.

This movie is a must for your collection, especially if you're fan of BIG HAIR ROCK. I grew up with the type of music this film is based on. I thought Mark Wahlberg did an amazing job of capturing the essence of a Heavy Metal frontman. He had the perfect swagger and look. Even if you aren't a huge fan of Metal, I'm sure at one time you've fantasized about being a rock star or some type of entertainer, right? I'm sure you'll be able to relate to the story of a guy who sings for a tribute band of his heroes, eventually getting the call to front the ACTUAL band. Jennifer Aniston and the cast of real life rockers like guitarist Zakk Wylde and Third Eye Blind's Stephan Jenkins are all great too. Oh and by the way... the soundtrack CD is also excellent, with original music from the film's band, Steel Dragon and classics from KISS, Bon Jovi and others. For a fun film ride I enthusiastically recommend ROCK STAR! Enjoy!!!
