3.5 Stars (out of 4)
Ten years ago, the rock band Magik broke up as they were on the brink of stardom. After moving on with their lives, the band members reunite for a second chance at glory. Rock On!! thoughtfully explores the compromises people make in the name of security and family — and the danger of giving up on your dreams. Anyone who ever left a band for a “real job” will appreciate this film. The music’s good, too.
Rated PG; 150 minutes
