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."

Mark Wahlberg was excellent in this film! I watched it over and over for a week I liked it so much! You have to see this if you are a die hard rock fan like myself!

Ok I can say that this is the 2nd film I'm watching related to metal (the other one was little nickie) but as a movies guy my comment is that THIS ONE ROCKED MY WORLDS. It is one of the 2 best films I enjoyed the most, excellent scenario, no stupid american endings, awsome music and a complete reflection of the original metalhead, something that it is too rare in my country. If you are into hardrock and heavy metal then this is not something to miss.

Last saturday night I wasn't so keen about watching TV. It just ran for a background sound and I was expecting absolutely nothing. Bored to hell, what to do? Till the movie started. It was crazy!!!!!!!!!!! This music, it was one of the best movies I've seen lately. Even if it was predictible and so superficial, the music was absolutely worth it. At once I was back in the 80s,it reminded me of so much I was living myself. Not as that good/bad, as in the movie, but enough for recognizing. I was LIVING the story, singing the songs and so mad about myself to not have started recording this. Everybody who lived the 80s live, needs this movie and the music. Too bad, Steel Dragon is not a real group........... Truly heaven was the passage with Ted Nugent's Stranglehold. At the first moment I was startled. Was that really? Oh yeah, it was!!!!!!!!!! That song was one of my favorites in the 80s. Living the past, this moving is really living the 80s through the music.

When I first heard Mark ''Marky Mark'' Wahlberg was going to play a rocker in a heavy metal band..I doubled over with laughter. How could this failure of a rapper play a metal head? Well after watching this film...I was speechless. He was brilliant in the role. The film is kind of funny at times, and I am not really sure it was supposed to be. If you grew up with bands like Iron Maiden,Judas Priest,Man o war...Then you will love the flashback this movie provides. Incidentally...rumor has it that this film is actually based on Judas Priest..which adds even more twisted humor! I definetly recommend this film. Its ''awesome dude''. Enjoy!

I thought that this movie was awesome. I watched it 5 times when I rented it. Mark Wahlberg was sensational in the movie and the story was a great as well. I recommend this movie to just about eveyone. I also would recommend the soundtrack, the music was very very good!!

Good over-all flick. The ending is a bit much (Total Eddie Vedder grunge transformation). Otherwise, it's good to see former Steelheart and RED ALERT (CT) frontman Mike M. still rocks, doing some of the vocals for Markie-Mark
