Con's: The character, Omar, was bland and boring.

This is entertaining, very beautiful and worth checking out.

A great soundtrack, wonderful anime cartooning, and a creative storyline combine to make this a thoroughly enjoyable film for Rock Opera and Anime lovers.

In the animation Genre it has a fun and exciting plot with fantastic music and vocals.

Also, the music though not available in a CD compilation soundtrack, is quite enjoyable and for those who have access, listen to it.

The characters are dopey, the songs are boring and the animation is lazily cheap.

I did enjoy the thrilling atmosphere conveyed during the songs.

) The art is great, the music superb, and the storyline is intriguing!

Canadian edit is the only version worth watching.

and it is quite enjoyable that way, moreso some would say.

Mok was the only character who was interesting and entertaining.

Rock N Rule is an awesome trip through action packed, colorful, well drawn 2D animation, backed up by the great rock & roll of Cheap Trick, Debby Harry, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop.

For an animated film made back in the early eighties, this is truly breathtaking!

It is definitely worth watching if you want an experience.

Petitioning is too slow, famous eccentrics are too finicky.

The villain, the epitome of a Pop star gone wrong, is rotten and enjoyable with all his egotistic faults.

While not quite on the level of classics like heavy metal, I find it to be an enjoyable film worth bringing up over 30 years later.

Technical gibberish aside, it is entertaining.

Magnificent, entertaining and well made animated Sci-fi musical with the music of Debroah Harry, Cheap Trick, Earth Wind and Fire, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop.

The songs themselves are from an era long gone, but still enjoyable in that "we sing what we like" way that completely ignores the industry.
