Editorial Reviews

A battle of naked ambition played out on the national and world stage, AIR GUITAR NATION chronicles the birth of the US Air Guitar Championships as legions of aspiring rock stars compete to become the greatest air guitarist in the world. Two would-be rock legends emerge and strum their way towards glory and the coveted national title. Samurai warrior C. Diddy emerges as an early favorite, but his arch nemesis Björn Türoque is not far behind. Will Björn s technical prowess, attitude, and airness be enough to take him to the top, or will C. Diddy conquer all to become America s first supreme being of air guitar?

Customer Reviews

It will make you wonder, it will make you laugh, it will make you go "hmmmm".
Benjamin Zimmerman
The competition is fascinating, as well as the stories of the film's two main subjects--C-Diddy and Bjorn Turoque.
S.
It is very funny and it benefits from having a lot of great new and classic rock songs in the soundtrack.

Anyone who is a fan of rock music will appreciate this documentary about the World Air Guitar Championships. It is very funny and it benefits from having a lot of great new and classic rock songs in the soundtrack. When the lights came up at the end, someone next to me said, "It's right up there with 'Spinal Tap'!" I would agree .

Because it's different, uninhibited, energetic, and most importantly incredibly funny, a film that completely draws you into itself for a few hours...but then the films over and you wish it would have gone on forever.

I didn't know anything about air guitar befor i watched "Air guitar Nation". Not only did I discover something extraordinary, i fell so lucky to have discovered it through this very skillfully directed film. it's like a thriller keeping you on the edge of your seat from begining to end. Everyone should watch this! It is not only entertaining, it is philosophical , fun and exiting!

This is probably one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. I caught the movie at a film festival last year. A buddy dragged me to it, and I was thinking that it was going to be another competition movie with a bunch of dorks. Well, yeah, it was a competition, and yeah, these guys are dorks, but the tension, comedy, and great music made it special treat, unlike anything I've ever seen. The crowd was literally going wild. If you want to have a good time, give this movie a try. You'll totally enjoy it...

3.5 stars

The hyperbole of the other reviews here is extreme; comparing this to Spinal Tap is way off base. It's nowhere near as funny, fresh, or ingenious. Yeah, it's good, but it ain't one of the great documentaries of all time.

This is indeed a fun film, full of good vibes and nice guys. But damn, it's just slooow at points! The filmmakers keep it basic, and I think they lost a lot of potential humor doing that.

I may be biased in that I saw The King of Kong a couple of months ago, and that to me was the truly classic movie others found this to be. Side by side, Air Guitar comes off as a student film, not technically, but in that while Kong often surprises and plays with your expectations, this film merely shows what happened, and somewhat blandly at times. AGN is just straight narrative, and while all the characters are pleasant, the only real pay-off is when C. Diddy gets the approval of his parents at the end, and his Mom does the metal sign. That was touching, but the rest of this movie was merely a fair doc on a funny subject, and nothing that really involved me. I just think it could have been cut and paced in a more rock and roll way, in light of its subject.

Hey, I love air guitar and real guitar, but I've seen way better air guitarists than this many times in many places. As far as humor goes, I laughed out loud during King of Kong nine times (I started counting after four; it's rare to get that many big laughs out of my jaded humor center); I didn't really have one gut laugh during this film. Just a lot of smiles. I'm all for smiles, but they ain't belly laughs.

I liked AGN, but it's far from a masterpiece. No offense to those who love it---each of us must march to his own (air) drummer.

Since there has been rock n' roll, there has been air guitar. For decades, air guitar was something that you did behind a locked, closed door. But no more - some enterprising people have established an Air Guitar World Championship in Oulu, Finland. The documentary Air Guitar Nation focuses on several American contestants for the coveted championship.

Viewers meet many great characters. David "C Diddy" Jung is one of the favorites for the title - much to the consternation of his Korean-American parents who wanted him to become a doctor or a lawyer. C Diddy uses a "Hello Kitty" backpack as a breastplate during his performances. One of C Diddy's main rivals is Dan "Bjorn Turoque" Crane, who often comments on the deeper meaning behind air guitar.

Viewers have to see some of the other contestants to believe them. One man performs in the nude while another plays air guitar to Christian rock from his wheelchair. All hope to impress the judges by demonstrating an ill-defined quality called "airness."

It's hard to say what makes Air Guitar Nation a winner. There are great tunes, interesting characters, and lots of humor. My wife and I watched with our ten-month-old daughter and she happily bounced along to the songs. In the end, the film is goofy, good fun that gives the viewer a different slice of life.

I saw this at the SXSW film festival in 2006 mainly because it was the only thing showing at the time where were at. Oh man! Am I glad I saw it! No expectations at all...and it was one of the coolest things I've seen in a theater!! So freaking funny! The whole audience was going nuts pretty much the whole time. These real live "characters" are so hilarioius and so charismatic...they really make the fillm go. Such a crazy and goofy topic, but it was an awesome experience. If you appreciate good comedy and rock music, it's a must see.

I saw this documentary when it first appeared at a film festival. I love guitars and just about anything else that is taken to extremes. Not only is this film flat out funny, it shows you that not matter where you are in the world, the universal language is air guitar. If everyone in the world played air guitar, there would be world peace. After all, how can you hold a gun when you are holding a super cool Flying V air guitar?! This film is definitely worth adding to your collection, right next to Spinal Tap and Black Roses!
