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.Read more ›
In my mind, this movie is not about air drumming, it is more about the underdog overcoming. I found the characters to be all all bright and charming, and I liked the locations the film was made at.
The extras include an interview with Neil Peart.
At the end of the commentary Ari Gold asks to get in touch with him via his website. He does return your comments.
It's like the rock-n-roll version of Napoleon Dynamite, with a perfect soundtrack heavily relying on Rush's Tom Sawyer as its theme. After messing up at his job, Power leaves his home to pursue his dream as a professional air drummer. There is a great love story in there, too, featuring a beautiful deaf actress who plays the daughter of a fundamentalist Christian. The mom is heavily opposed to rock and roll and her daughter's new infatuation. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll get chills, but you won't pussyfoot--you'll double-bass drum!

Not a good film. I agree with many of the reviews outside of Amazon. It felt like the filmmaker wanted to jump on the coattails of Napoleon Dynamite's success and do something... Read morePublished on March 4, 2013 by Artista
