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

5 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

a quirky story told with quirky characters. if you watch the movie you will understand my title!

i do not know if this movie will become a cult classic or not, but it's a classic for good laughs and a humorous adventure tale. along the way some social issues are thrown in to show how silly we are to take unimportant things way to seriously. and we don't take the important things seriously enough.

power's adventure can look a bit dangerous at times but he stays focused on his goal and finds love and respect because of it - a simple much told message - but power tells it his way! a light hearted movie for fun and laffs. i can't recommend this movie enough. but good luck finding it as a rental. i got lucky! my favorite characters are the oriental couple!
