MARK WAHLBERG IS TRYING TO BE A "ROCK STAR" IN THIS 2001 CLUNKER - KEY WORD TRYING- THE HORROR!

Timothy Olyphant as a rock musician? The Horror! - 2001's Rock Star doesn't hold up very well with time. Not that it has anything to hold up to begin with- it almost could be what I like to call a "good 2-star movie" but the flick is so laden with heavy metal cliches, it doesn't just drown, it goes to the bottom of the ocean. What we're left with is a lot of really good acting talent that's basically wasted and a cool scene here and there. Using my Pinewoods Rating System, Rock Star gets an embarassing One & 1/2 Pinewood.....The Horror!! 

Rock Star Movie Review & Film Summary (2001) | Roger Ebert

Rock is a business like any other, and musicians are businessmen, and what goes on behind the scenes isn't always pretty. We know this, and we don't want to know this. ''Rock Star'' is a movie about a copy machine repairman who becomes the lead singer in a famous heavy metal band, and somehow with that premise it should be more fun than it is.

Movie Review - - FILM REVIEW: Rock Star (2001) - Celebrating the Love Of Bad Rock in the 80's

''Rock Star'' is rated R (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). It has sex, drugs and some pretty bad rock 'n' roll. ROCK STAR Directed by Stephen Herek; written by John Stockwell; director of photography, Ueli Steiger; edited by Trudy Ship; music by Trevor Rabin; production designer, Mayne Berke; produced by Robert Lawrence and Toby Jaffe; released by Warner Brothers.

One of the film's only redeeming values, Timothy Spall is great once again, this time as the corrupt tour manager.
THE HORROR!!
