Starring a plethora of America's best up and coming actors and
actresses, Camp Rock the Extended Rock Star Edition is
finally available in Australia which is masterfully directed by
Matthews Diamond. Once again Disney will unleash the inner rock star
within us all as the extremely talented Demi Lovato, Meaghan Jette
and Daniel Fathers sing and dance their way to some great musical
Although the story of Camp Rock is a little clichéd at times, it's
the great storytelling experience that makes this so special and
it's also half the fun of these modern musicals which not only pays
homage to the classics of Hollywood butadds to the musical film
genre with a 21st century finesse.
The story itself revolves around Mitchie (Demi Lovato) whose life
goes from "boring" cook at Camp Rock to all-star Rockstar, thanks to
the efforts of the Jonas Brothers who also star in this entertaining

movie is exceptionally impressive both through its visual and audio

Where the Extended Rock Star Edition
does shine is through the great special features which includes
karaoke, a great "Backstage Disney" featurette, an interesting short
documentary about the Jonas Brother and my personal favourite, the "Hasta
La Vista" rehearsals which will have fans clamoring for more.
Definitely a first class presentation from Disney for viewers of all
ages... although if you're under the age of 18, you might get a
bigger kick from it!
