Adventures of Power- September 15th

adventuresAdventures of Power (2008)
English- Comedy Adventure
Rated “PG-13”
Runtime- 89 min
dir. Ari Gold

The New Mexico setting is most of what piqued my interest about this one.

Story/Writing: 1/2

The story centers around the hopeless Power (Gold), as he attempts to fulfill his dreams of becoming a world-class air drummer. He defeats his nemesis, connects with his father, and saves his hometown. Same old, same old.

Acting: 1/2

Apart from Ari Gold as Power and Shoshannah Stern as the love interest, most of the characters are fairly one-dimensional.

Photography/Set: 2/2

Interesting sets and locations combine with good photography to give the film a special look that goes a long way towards establishing its uniqueness.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

The songs are explosive when they need to be, especially Tom Sawyer, the Rush song that is the main theme of the film.

Misc: 1.5/2

A fun little independent jaunt that falls short of being a real gem.
