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 ?!? Even though, nowadays, super-heroes are immensely popular and big business in the box-office, they actually made some of those also in the 90's but they always flopped. Somehow, instead of focusing on the popular characters I mentio... read more

Movie Reviews (401-450) (50 movies items)

" Retro superhero movie best described as a mix between "Iron Man" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" directed by the same director who did the "First Avenger". It was done many years before the superhero craze with a modest budget and no computer effects. I loved the cute pairing with Bill Campbell and gorgeous Jennifer Connelly who is always perfect for this classic time-setting. Timothy Dalton is also believable as movie actor who is also a nazi scum. It also have some fun in-jokes and "
