Adventures 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.
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.
Apart from Ari Gold as Power and Shoshannah Stern as the love interest, most of the characters are fairly one-dimensional.
Interesting sets and locations combine with good photography to give the film a special look that goes a long way towards establishing its uniqueness.
The songs are explosive when they need to be, especially Tom Sawyer, the Rush song that is the main theme of the film.
A fun little independent jaunt that falls short of being a real gem.
