    Synopsis


    Rock Star
    Loosely inspired by the true story of the heavy metal band Judas Priest, this music industry fable from director Stephen Herek is based on a script by actor-turned-writer/director John Stockwell. Mark Wahlberg stars as Chris Cole, a wannabe rock star who works by day as a copy machine repairman and by night as the lead singer of Blood Pollution, a Pennsylvania tribute band that imitates the best-selling heavy metal rockers of Steel Dragon. Although he's supported by his girlfriend Emily (Jennifer Aniston), Chris is devastated when his friends kick him out of the band he founded. His humiliation doesn't last long, however, as Chris soon learns that he's been tapped to replace the lead singer of Steel Dragon, literally becoming a rock star overnight. Chris soon has everything he's ever wanted but is disappointed to discover that being a superstar isn't everything it's cracked up to be. Rock Star was produced under two other titles, "Metal God" and "So You Want to Be a Rock Star." ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      This is one of those movies that you really have to appreciate the lost art of Rock-N-Roll to truly enjoy. Growing up listening to Van Halen, Judas Priest, and Def Leppard, this movie was a lot of fun to watch... and rock out to. The cast rocked their roles and the random "real" musicians appearing throughout the movie had it's "Oh my God! It's so-and-so from..." moments which made it even better.

      Good music and a host of great musicians from the 80's hard rock and metal era. Jason Bonham, Zakk Wylde, Jeff Pilsen and many others make the characters in this movie about a struggling rock front man that makes it to the big time, seem more true to life and realistic. Great performance scenes with a good background story.

      Did not think Marky Mark could pull off this role. But he killed it. A great movie here if you are a fan of 80's metal.
