Forgive the film its "Napoleon Dynamite" overquirk; a loving god is watching all, genuflected to on bedroom-wall posters and seen in the film's final five minutes--and if you're not a Rush fan, this is not your movie

Variety
Absurdist underdog yarn that feels positively Martian in its brand of tom-tomfoolery. Like a "Saturday Night Live" sketch gone on too long, Ari Gold's feature debut will tax unsuspecting viewers, while sending those on Gold's special wavelength into seizures of delight.

Village Voice
The film--despite some successful goofs and a defiantly dorky Phil Collins tribute--can't quite win for trying.
50
Sprinkled with moderately amusing comic moments, but basically your enjoyment of this film will be proportional to your tolerance for the one-joke phenomenon of air drumming.

The Hollywood Reporter
As a spoof of against-all-odds sports movies, "Power" has its moments. But for most of its running time, it buys into the feel-good formula, aiming to blend silliness and social issues into an inspirational tale

Adventures of Power just may teach the world that, as hard as it is to catch the wind, it's harder still to drum the air.

Mostly, though, you'll appreciate Grenier, who approaches this minor project with hilarious and generous abandon.

Not even the always reliable talents of McKean and Lynch can help pull this comedy out of its ironic slump.
25
Barely watchable, despite the presence of such pros as Michael McKean and Jane Lynch.
