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

Contains more laughs than 99% of mainstream Hollywood comedies
19 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to catch this movie and thought I'd throw in my tupenceworth. I've sat through many a so called comedy and not been moved to write about them but this film is dramatically different. Ari Golds debut feature has laughs aplenty. The characters are both funny and engaging. I won't spoil the plot other than to say it involves the unusual subject of 'Air Drumming' but I cannot recommend it highly enough. Ari is a riot throughout but is well rewarded by the brilliant casting as each of the characters brings something to the movie. I would particularly praise the casting of gorgeous Shoshannah Stern as Powers (Ari Golds) love interest. Despite being completely deaf she is able to inspire Power to new heights of air drumming greatness. Quirky & fantastic by the same measure I recommend you see it now!
