Critic Reviews for Air Guitar Nation
There must be better, more useful ways of amusing themselves but obviously none which would allow them to strut the stage to the plaudits of a baying crowd like latter-day rock stars.
Like most guitar solos, the film doesn't quite know when to quit.
Despite the film's admirable brevity it's still hard to maintain a wry ironic grin for a full 81 minutes.
Shot in a raw, grungy style that lends the film a degree of authenticity, AGN is a riff-roaring experience that rarely hits a bum note.
Audience Reviews for Air Guitar Nation
Air Guitar Nation is insanely entertaining. Honestly, I put this movie off for a long time thinking that there was no way I was going to be entertained or at all care about air guitar. But it's really easy to like and actually dare I say respect what they are doing. C-Diddy and Bjorn Turoque are really likable in their own weird way and that's what makes the movie as they are the prime focus of the documentary. Some of the things the players say and so just make you laugh and then you see they aren't laughing and you think, "Wait, Are they serious?" To some extent they are, but the good thing is they only do it to have fun and I have to say it's a lot of fun to watch them.
On a scale between 4.0 and 6.0, I give it a 5.8! What an interesting film! This "mockumentary" film ranks up there with "Murderball" and "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters", really defining this genre of movies at the top of the ranks. This is top-notch entertainment, you can't script better characters. If you haven't seen "C-Diddy" perform, then you're just missing out.
This is a really fun movie to watch. It starts with a ridiculous premise, but eventually wins you over with its exhuberance and, I hate to say it, skill. Some of the guys who compete are really quite accomplished in thier strange field and are pretty impressive to watch. This movie is like watching multiple love letters to rock music, if not guitar aptitude. It's too bad that Dan Crane kind of comes off as a bit desperate and pathetic. He's not too bad, but his tenacity makes him kind of a tragic character.
