Editorial Reviews

With the plug about to be pulled on his late night talk show after a fifteen year run, and his wife engaged in a steamy affair with a pro baseball star, host Jack West is desperate - to keep aflame his fading celebrity, and avenge the misdeeds of his adulterous spouse. With the clock ticking, Jack concocts the mother of all media stunts. Remarkable Power is a unique roller-coaster ride of comedy, mystery, murder and mayhem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rent, don't buy January 20, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Remarkable Power is not a great movie, and not even a really good movie, but it does have many funny moments. As mentioned in the other reviews, it earns its "R" rating through some graphic scenes of sexual and violent nature, as well as language, but really nothing out of the ordinary. If you appreciate dark, irreverant humor and sprawling, non-linear plots, you'll probably find Remarkable Power a good way to spend 90 minutes. This reminds me of the comedies they used to air on tv at 2:00AM on weekends (if it was edited, that is) -- just right if you're bored and want to watch something, but not necessarily something you'd spend much money on or want to buy to re-watch. Be advised some of the actors listed don't have huge screen time (i.e., Christopher Titus), but everyone gets their moments. The pace is slow and the plot confusing in the beginning, but stick with it, because the movie gathers steam, gets funnier, and all the disparate parts begin to come together by the mid-point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Indie Flick June 20, 2010
Format:DVD
Though the two biggest names in this movie play side roles... well it is actually hard to tell who the main character is.
Basically the movie is one major caper that leads to a series of crazy events and then it all comes together.
If you like Snatch, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Fight Club, or Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels. Then you'll appreciate this one.
Remember its just a mid budget indie flick has its dry parts but then has several great moments.

Also take note that it is Rated R. That usually means blood, sex, and bad words.
Plus it is a Dark Comedy so expect almost humorous impalements and people trying to steal dead bodies.
Not for the faint of heart, but in the end for 98 cents plus shipping this one will be worth your while.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it! April 8, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Short and to the point here as I hate typing. I really enjoyed this movie as it had a lot of twists and turns to it. I thought it had a very clever plot and as it played out, it really came to life. If you like movies that are different, watch this one. For me, it was one of those movies that I saw the title many times as I was browsing movies but never thought to watch it. I am so glad that I finally did as it is now one of my favorites : )

3.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - (...) - @tss5078 September 14, 2013
Format:DVD
Remarkable Power is a unique and interesting movie that I really wish hadn't been an independent film. It was such a unique idea, that I really would have like to have seen how audiences took it. The film is categorized as a dark comedy, and while there are several very funny scenes, I didn't really find it very funny, however it was such a solid story that it maintained my interest throughout. The film is separated by four different sub-stories, that come together in the end. The main focus is based on one man's actions following his introduction to a set of self-help tapes, called, Remarkable Power. The other, on a former child star, turned TV talk show host, who is about to lose his job, and needs a miracle in order to salvage his career. The film has some of my favorite comedic actors in it, but it tries so hard to be funny, that it turns out not to be. What saves this film, is how compelling the story becomes, I mean they throw everything at you from murder, drugs, and the mafia to sex, Hollywood, and even superhero cops. Evan Peters from American Horror Story is the one person who seems to be in the middle of everything and they made an excellent choice. This guy really has some tremendous ability, as seen both here and in his television show. Even if this movie doesn't sound appealing to you, Peters performance alone is really something to see. Kevin Nealon is also terrific, as he continues to try and get from the label as just a funny secondary character. Nealon really takes the lead in the most compelling part of the story and comes up with a plan to save his talk show, that really is ingenious. Remarkable Power isn't what they make it out to be and the writers tried way too hard to make this into something it wasn't, but I will say this, the performances were outstanding and the story is far from predictable. It wasn't the comedy I was expecting, but by and large it was still very entertaining.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible - we had to turn it off June 13, 2010
Format:DVD
We're big fans of Kevin Nealon, and who can forget Tom Arnold's great performance in True Lies! We saw Kevin Nealon live and he was hilarious! Though we'd never heard of this movie, and it didn't make it to wide distribution on the big screen, we thought it would have to be at the very least somewhat entertaining. After about 1/2 hour we had to turn it off.

At that point we still didn't have any idea what this movie was really supposed to be about. The script was terrible, unbelievable and uninteresting. We were still going to wait it out to see if it got better, but suddenly there was unbelievably graphic gore on screen. This gory scene just kept going and going and going. My wife covered her eyes and begged me to turn off the movie. I had no problem complying.

Sometimes a certain amount of violence is necessary to tell a story, but this seemed to be horror for the sake of adding thrill to an otherwise very boring and empty show. It didn't work. It should also be noted that right at the start of the film there was a long, graphic sex scene, which bordered on porno-style. If you wanted to get a message across that this woman was cheating, it didn't have to be delivered that graphically and that long. Again, it seems to be there as a trick for the sake of helping the film, but it didn't.

You wouldn't know that the any of this gore or explicit sex is in the film from the DVD box, so be warned. Sorry Kevin and Tom, but you guys are waaaaaay better than this.
