Default 50 Cent’s Starz series “Power” looks like a superficial video rather than a real dram

“'Power' seemingly wants to be a show that tells a big, complicated, meaningful story about, well, the perils and problems of power and how one man deals with them,” says Tim Goodman. "That man is James ‘Ghost' St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) and how he deals with these issues isn’t particularly intriguing. In fact, no part of Power is particularly intriguing. It feels like a superficial video rather than a real drama. Take out the sex and the swearing and it could be on ABC like any of its other vapid soaps.” PLUS: “Power” revels in all the clichés of the genre — but with sincerity, not cynicism, and it offers undemanding escapism with pay-TV trappings.
