Adventures of Power

AdventuresOfPower Writer/director/actor Ari Gold has made a competent student film that would graduate him from any film school with flying colors--that's to say, here is an example of a filmmaker who hasn't yet begun to find his own voice. Gold plays Power, a twentysomething New Mexico dwelling rock 'n' roll nerd who works at a union copper mine with his dad Harlan (Michael McKean). Unable to ever afford a drum kit, Power lives to rock out by air drumming along with Rush songs. An unlikely journey across the border to a Mexican air drumming competition leads the gawky lad to New Jersey where he's taken under the wing of air drumming guru Carlos (Steven Williams). In the company of Carlos's crew, Power trains for a team competition against a slew of air drummers that include Power's hated enemy--country music star Dallas Houston (Adrian Grenier).
Rated PG-13. 88 mins. (D) (One Star)
