Product Description

Although it featured songs by Debbie Harry, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Cheap Trick, and Earth, Wind & Fire, Rock and Rule (Canada, 1983) never received a general US release. Set in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by mutants, the underdeveloped story centers on the rock star Mok and his efforts to summon a demon from another dimension. Only the voice of aspiring singer Angel can cross the dimensional barrier and free the monster. A series of chases and concerts leads to Mok's destruction by Angel and her true love/singing partner Omar. Clive Smith's direction is simply inept: the story plods along listlessly; the characters change motivation on a dime; the crude CG special effects are squandered in minor scenes, rather than used to punch up the climax.

Rock and Rule reflects the confusion of the animation industry in the early '80s. Yellow Submarine and Fritz the Cat had proved there was an audience for hip, edgy animated features. But nobody could make a good one, and a series of bombs caused animation to be labeled box-office poison. More than 20 years later, Rock and Rule holds a curiosity value for fans of old rock, but it's not a memorable film. (Rated PG: violence, grotesque imagery, brief nudity, alcohol, drug, and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

I first saw this movie on Bravo (or was it Showcase) about ten years ago.
Ever since then, I have been looking and looking for it.
Finally, I got it today, and I was not disappointed. This movie is vivid, with amazing musical talent, a great and simple story, and most importantly, it all works together.
It's a great movie, and the special features on this 2-disc set make it worthwhile for any fan of the movie, early 1980's punk rock, or animation in general.
This is an unique movie, geared for a more mature crowd, but still not 'adult' in the general sense of the phrase (at least how it's used today).
I recommend this DVD, because it's got everything anyone could want on a DVD for this movie. The behind the scenes featurette is kinda cool too, seeing how early on computers were used in animation was a surprise to me.
Bottom line: worth it.

Get the two-disc version, you won't be disappointed! Unearthed films have done an EXCELLENT job on this set - the look, sound, packaging & DVD extras are all top notch (Thank You, Unearthed, you've done it justice). I remember seeing it on CBC when it first got released (1983) & I've waited till it got it's proper release on DVD till I bought it. This was draw by the great Canadian Nelvana animation studios, therefore the labeling of the Canadian version on the second disc as the alternate version is misleading, anyway, it's Nelvana's best animation ever. Highly Recommended.

Finally this incredible movie will be available to a wider audience. I've been limited to watching an old vhf copy of the movie for years. I don't know if I should really write a review on Rock & Rule as I have a total bias because it is one of the best cartoon movies of all time. It is slow at some points (be patient) but has a great soundtrack and is an excellent example of North American annimation. Suitable to be placed up with all your Bakshi movies. I still hear a certain song in my head when I see a bleached blonde bubble head walk by :

"yer so pretty, yer so pretty, yer so fair, love your hair.

yer so pretty, yer so pretty, love yer makeup love yer clothes love yer eyes love yer nose... YOU'RE PRETTY USELESS..."

Finally, a great movie gets the release it deserves!
My first experience with Rock & Rule was seeing parts of it featuring the music on one of the late night music video shows that were around in the early '80's, and I was blow away then by the bright, colorful animation along with the great music. I finally saw the movie one late night on CBC (the Canadian Broadcasting Company) and the movie, music and images have stuck with me ever since! Sadly the movie never got a proper release, and I had thought I'd never see it again till one day when I was thinking about the movie and did a Google search for it. What came up was Unearthed Films, and the news that they were restoring and releasing it on DVD!
Now I must admit I had doubts, was it going to be as good as I remembered? Would it seem dated after 22 years or so since I last saw it? Let me say this movie was even better than I remembered, and the job Unearthed Films have done with this release is nothing short of superb! Everything from the animated DVD menus, to the cover art and packaging is top notch, and the remastered 5.1 soundtrack and restored film make this movie look and sound even better then when it was first shown.
I'll try not to spoil too much, but the story is about an aging super-rocker named Mok, who is trying to use a concert to summon a demon to give him ultimate power. What he needs to complete his evil plot is a special voice, one that can make the right harmonic notes to open the gate and summon the demon. Mok finds that voice in the beautiful Angel, singing with her band in a run down bar in Ohm Town.
Mok then goes about trying to break up the band and eventually kidnaps Angel, taking her to Nuke York, and the rest of the band gives chase, leading to the final concert and battle of good and evil.
