Product Description

Combining the hilarious satire of Spinal Tap and School of Rock, ADVENTURES OF POWER is a Sundance Film Festival & audience favorite starring the real Ari Gold, Jane Lynch (Glee), Adrian Grenier (Entourage), Michael McKean (Spinal Tap), Shoshannah Stern (Jericho), and Chi Chiu Ling (Kung Fu Hustle), about a air-drummer who saves his hometown by listening to his heartbeat. With a totally awesome (LA Times) soundtrack of 80's hits & hilarious originals. 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. Over 60 Minutes of Bonus Material including: Exclusive interview & drum-off with Rush Drummer Neil Peart Music video starring Adrian Grenier -Entourage- as Dallas! Deleted scenes featuring Jane Lynch Glee - Tim Heidecker & Eric Wareheim - Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, Nick Kroll - The League - and more! Postcards from the set.

Review

Rowdy response to 'Power's' midnight unspooling at Sundance establishes the pic's cult-movie cred. Gold's a gifted comedian. --Variety

An enthusiastic Drums Up... Totally awesome! --L.A. Times

One of the funniest films in recent years! --New York

Loved this movie! I had the chance to see it at a special screening for a charity fundraiser, and it was a blast. Power, the main character, lives in the middle of nowhere, New Mexico, and although he spends his days working at a refinery, his life revolves around the "art" of "air drumming." Circumstances evolve so that he eventually winds up in the Big Apple competing in a high stakes air drumming competition. To be totally honest, I found the very beginning of the movie a little slow, but it quickly picked up speed, and I enjoyed every minute of it. It's very funny, with a great cast including Michael McKean from "Spinal Tap," Jane Lynch, of "Glee" fame, and Adrian Grenier, from "Entourage." The soundtrack's terrific, especially for those who came of age in the '80s. (If you didn't, then you might not be as thrilled about that as I was. My thirteen-year-old didn't care for the music at all, but, what does she know?!!) Artists featured include Neil Peart and Rush, the Daz Band's "Whip It," and more. What's not to love? The film carries a wonderful message, too, about following your dream no matter what other people might think and no matter how daunting the obstacles are to overcome. It reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite in that regard. I have no idea why it didn't make it to the theaters, but I definitely intend to grab it on DVD. I hope you will too!

I've been following "Adventures of Power" on FaceBook for quite a while, and was so excited that it was finally released on DVD! Yes, it's campy, but I think that's the point. It's "Napoleon Dynamite"-esque, so if you didn't like ND, chances are AoP is not for you. But it's been a long time since I have seen a totally original movie that had complex story lines for multiple characters. The movie is designed to relate to "everyman" - there are issues that we all can relate to regardless of socioeconomic status. If you are a musician - especially a percussionist - you will definitely relate to this movie. And make sure you take a look at the Bonus Features, as they include an interview with Rush drummer Neil Peart and a "drum-off" between Ari Gold (Power) and Peart!

I highly recommend this movie to anyone who appreciates good, old fashioned comedy draped in a bit of drama and a lot of camp.

This movie is one of the funniest I have ever seen!! I saw it at a film festival in 2009 and since then have wished that my friends could see it, too. It made me laugh so hard I cried and then my stomach hurt, too! I'm so glad it's out on DVD now. Offbeat humor with an underlying positive message. Great soundtrack of original and previously recorded music. This is a must see for anyone who loves movies about music (The Commitments, High Fidelity, Spinal Tap). Fans of the music of Rush or Phil Collins should also see this movie.

I got the chance to watch the movie in Berlin, Germany with Q&A with Ari Gold. He was a great host and was around for more questions after the screening. The movie is really funny and has got a great soundtrack. It's a mix of nostalgia, random quotes and a hell of an air drum session. The great thing is that you get great production value with the heart of an indie movie. You will be surprised by this movie for sure!

I was hooked when Rush's Tom Sawyer was the running thread throught this tale of air drummer supremacy with a factory town drama background. The actors acted with freedom, and this added to the odd attraction of the film. I have seen this film 3 times since buying it for 8 bucks after shipping, and will watch it many more times. I nice clean film. It barely deserves the pg-13 rating, and is less racey than any drama crime show reruns kids see at any hour of the day. A fun flick!

Although The Adventures of Power received plenty of hate on Netflix and Rottentomatoes, I happen to think the film was pretty clever and funny (in a silly kind of way). The humor here is a little more understated and probably won't appeal to some, but I thought it was an awesome comedy. The Adventures of Power is finally something original with a fantastic soundtrack (if you love classic 80s rock such as Rush, Loverboy, or Mr. Mister), hilarious scenes reminiscent of Spinal Tap, and a good message about the underdog overcoming odds. There is also a love story, as Power meets Annie, a girl he falls for, who gives Power the inspiration to drum. The film is able to balance a bit of satire and wit with plain goofiness to create laughs.

The Adventures of Power tells the story of one young man and his dream of air drumming. Power has always felt he had something special (even if it wasn't a set of drums), and while his uncle chastises him, telling him that people are making fun of him, Power still believes that good will come of his "talent." His air drumming skills take him to talent shows, to an illegal underground air drumming contest in Mexico, which features a motley mix of air drummers trying to keep up with speed metal, and finally to an all-stakes air drum showdown in Newark. Carlos, a man without hands to drum, sees Power as the next great hope in air drumming, and enlists him. With his fascination with Rush's "Tom Sawyer", Power makes the trip to the big time with hopes of achieving great things. To do this, he and his fellow air drummers will have to battle the best of the best air drummers.

Many have noted the similarities between The Adventures of Power with Napoleon Dynamite and Dodgeball.
