Storyline

ADVENTURES OF POWER is an epic comedy about a mine-worker named Power whose love of drums and lack of musical skill has turned him into the ridiculed "air drummer" of his small town. But when Power's union-leader father calls a strike at the mine, Power discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers who just might hold the key to changing the world. Power's journey across America brings him face-to-face with his town's greatest enemy, and allows him to discover the beat within his own heart. Written by Ari Gold

Don't Stop Believing!
24 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, what a movie. Ever seen a movie about playing air guitar and wondered how about all the people i see out at the bars air drumming? Well you guessed right. There is a bunch obsessed with air drumming too.

This one has all the elements for a rating of 10. It is painfully hilarious and at the same time it is very deep, and real life. It is intended all of us (and by that I mean ALL of us)who have a unique 'trait'/ a random whatever that others might look down on. You can't help to root for the main character but it is not as typical of a movie as that makes it sound to be.

The main character reminded me of the naiveness of John Heder as Napoleon (and they do very strangely look like each other). This movie is all about identity, and it goes to prove that 2 people from completely different backgrounds and personalities can still share a common something.

Shoshannah Stern ties this movie together, and just like the movie she has this incredible ability to be funny and sad at the same time. You really feel for her, as she feels for Power.

For Adrian Grenier, it's like there was this one role I knew would be perfect for him and I couldn't quite put my finger on it. But here he is as a country star. One word = hilarious.

If you are passionate about music (especially rock & roll), you should see this one asap.
