An Uneven, But Amusing, Indie Comedy That Had the Potential To Be A True Cult Classic Aug. 9 2013
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It's not surprising that the new indie "Rock Jocks" employs a cast that has a familiar and extensive online presence. In many ways, it feels like an extended web series as opposed to a full fledged feature film. I don't mean this as a huge criticism, it's just that this movie obviously has a tiny budget and seems to have been made on the fly. The entire scenario takes place over the course of about twelve hours and is largely confined to one set. The smartest thing that the movie does is to acknowledge its own inexpensiveness. In a funny bit of introduction to the facility, an antiquated instructional video tells the viewer that the station is populated with state of the art equipment from the 1960s. And it looks every bit that advanced! The facility in question is a top secret Department of Defense project called AMI or the Asteroid Management Initiative. On one overnight shift, the misfits that man the AMI face all the usual workplace issues: boredom, staff conflict, practical jokes, and peer assessments. But tonight, they also face a DOD bureaucrat that threatens to eliminate their jobs as well as the potential end of the world!

The movie begins as the overnight shift approaches. We meet an eclectic crew that includes Andrew Bowen (the burn-out), Felicia Day (the over-achiever), Gerry Bednob (the drunken veteran), Justin Chon (the annoying prankster), and Kevin Wu (the newbie plagued by insecurities). Can the fate of the world really be in their hands? The movie does not have much in the way of plotting, this really just explores the uncomfortable tedium prevalent in many an office job. Instead of sitting in cubicles, however, this team man lasers pointed toward space. Through the course of the shift, each will be called in to speak with the official observing the operation as their fate is soon to be decided. The movie has an easy improvisational feel, a high use of profane language, and a casual offensiveness that should appeal to many viewers. For me, however, the humor was scattershot at best. While I did laugh out loud on several occasions, I think that the movie misses out on several large opportunities. While certainly a passable and fitfully amusing entertainment, "Rock Jocks" may not be poised to be the next cult classic.

One of the things I most worry about when reviewing a picture like "Rock Jocks" is the supporters that will proclaim this little experience to be a masterpiece. It is best to approach such a film with modest expectations, that way you might be pleasantly surprised. If you come into "Rock Jocks" expecting the "funniest movie ever," I don't think it lives up to the hyperbole. On the plus side, "Rock Jocks" has a great cast (Bowen, especially, gives a surprisingly rounded performance), a truly awesome character in Smoking Jesus (that's all I'll say), and an inspired final act. On the flip side, Jason Mewes and Robert Picardo are completely underutilized as the security team. Their low key exchanges might be my favorite thing about the movie, but they certainly don't appear enough. "Rock Jocks" aspires to be a bit of in-your-face offensiveness with its lack of political correctness. And that's okay. But for me, the movie had great potential way beyond that. I think, with another polish on the screenplay, it might have been a cult gem. As is, I liked it well enough but probably wouldn't elect to watch it a second time. KGHarris, 8/13.

Yes, Lasers go *pew* *pew* in space. July 16 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Take a small group of people, that don't like each other or their job, stick them in a small top secret bunker, make them sleep deprived, and expect them to save the world...all day and everyday. Laughed out loud too many times to count. A great situational character driven comedy with excellent performances by the cast. Had me drawing parallels between the characters in the movie and the people I have/do work with.

A well done little film Dec 31 2013
By Terry Sofian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
OK the special effects aren't anything to write home about but the story is good and the acting is better than average. It does the "hours of boredom sandwiched between seconds of stark raving terror" vibe very well. Having spent countless hours in command posts both hoping and fearing that something would happen I could see the dynamic very well. Its a fun flick and well work watching.

Good flick to watch at the start of a Sci-Fi party! Oct. 2 2013
By Robert Hranek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I love just about everything Felicia Day does, and I can tell her humor spilled over into "Rock Jocks" too. I tried to get a local viewing of the movie via a "Tuggs" promotion, but when I could not generate enough ticket sales to make that happen, I bought a copy myself. This one might have too much profanity if you're going to have small children watching it with you, but it's perfect for a quick fix of Science Fiction viewing. Might work even better as something to have on during an Evening Convention Room Party to get several conversations started regarding the film - there's lots of genre-references and tech-talk to keep group of science-savvy watchers interested for its hour-and-half run time :)

Like "Office Space" in the Military Industrial Complex July 16 2013
By J. T. Van Benten - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"Rock Jocks" is a hilarious and knowing send up of a work environment where the conflicts and duties of a strange high tech project that combines a corporate, government/regulated milieu with area 51 myth inspired, whacked out, 21st century, diverse, recovering, stressed out work force. Think of "Office Space", "Buckaroo Bonzai", and even Monty Python rolled together. Very imaginative and a lot of fun!
