When young want to be singer Sherrie (Julianne Hough) moves to Hollywood she has her bag stolen she meets another wannabe singer Drew (Diego Boneta). Drew works in the famous Bourbon Club which is run by old rocker Dennis (Alec Baldwin), Drew gets Sherrie a job and the first few sparks start to fly.
Meanwhile Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise) is planning on leaving his band Arsenal and starting a solo career, He agrees to do one final show in the Bourbon for his old friend Dennis.
After Mike Whitmore (Bryan Cranston) is elected mayor himself and his wife Patricia (Catherine Zeta Jones) are determined to close the Bourbon.
What follows is telling of love in song, a battle for freedom of music, greed.
Knowing there was a classic 80s rock sound track was a huge selling point for me and i really wasn’t disappointed. Tom Cruise as the ageing rock star is brilliant, the two young leads both have incredible voices. If you don’t spend the next few days singing the songs you really haven’t enjoyed it.
Each part of the story comes together in one big story told in great fashion I feel if you like this type of music you will enjoy this film.
