"Peevy, you'd pay to see a man fly, wouldn't you?" Before comic book adaptations became a dime a dozen in the 21st Century, such ventures were risky gambles for studios. Although 1978's Superman and Tim Burton's Batman were massive money-makers, other endeavours were less successful at the box office. One such financial flop was 1991's The Rocketeer, a Disney-produced adaptation of the series of g... read more

Good comic book movies are still the exception and this movie is one of those exceptions. I never read the comics so I don't know how literally faithful it is, but in spirit it's as faithful an adaption as you could have hoped. It's as much an homage to the time as it is the the pulp movies/fictions of the time. The art-deco mini movie poster is a classic, too.

I don't get it... No disrespect but when you have Superman, Spider-man, Batman or the X-men why would you bother with the Rocketeer to make a comic-book adaptation ?!?

"Re-watch - Aug. 23rd Since I still had my daughter with me and we'd exhausted all the good options from Starz, we switched over to Disney+ to find something to watch and landed on The Rocketeer. And it's still a fun movie despite the obviousness of where it's headed. And watching it I'm reminded that Joe Johnston also directed Captain America: The First Avenger which seems perfect. The kiddo enjoyed it, though possibly not as much as I do. "
