I'm a rocket man Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone.....

  • Excerpt: This 1991 offering still has the charm and funny antics that made it the hit and essential fan favorite it has become. A simple story of a couple of aviator's one who wants to break the sound barrier with his need for speed while the other invents cool and neat looking flying planes. Although it crashes and burns on takeoff they get a second chance to make things work when they unexpectedly find a jet pack and utilize it's power by showing it off for entertainment.

At Least The Picture Is Good...

  • Excerpt: I've loved the Rocketeer since it came out when I was 11 years old. I've waited more than 20 years to see it in it's proper aspect ratio again. The blu-ray is great....for the most part. The picture is the best that the movie has ever looked. True, there are no extras other than a horrible looking, 4:3 trailer, but with a movie this amazing, you can just about forgive that. The one thing that I can't forgive, though, is the inclusion of a DTS-HD Master audio track.

'The Rocketeer' blu-ray review

Walts Ghost, blu-ray.com
9 June 2012
  • Excerpt: What do you get when you roll the adventurous tone of the ‘Indiana Jones’ films with the fun and excitement of aviation and the glitz and glammer of 1930′s Hollywood ? You get one of the best, as well as criminally under appreciated, films of the 1990′s: Joe Johnston’s ‘The Rocketeer’. This is what I consider the beginning of the current comic book to film phase, as well as one of the best.

"Jenny, prepare yourself for a shock: I'm the Rocketeer."

  • Excerpt: "I may not make an honest buck, but I'm 100% American. I don't work for no two-bit Nazi. Let the girl go!" The Rocketeer I haven't seen in at least 10 years. I have to say I still like the film. there's many actors I noticed now from so many shows and films since...I spotted Melora Hardin aka Jan Levinson from the office the young age of 23-24 years old as a singer at the club..

So, how do I look?....Like a hood ornament.

  • Excerpt: The Rocketeer is a very good comic book adaptation. There is humor, action, romance, and a strong villain. Tie that together with Joe Johnston's unabashed enthusiasm for the bygone "studio" era in which the film is set, and you are left with a thoroughly entertaining film. Cliff Secord is an aircraft pilot trying to compete in the national air race along with mechanic and mentor Peavy Peabody.

Coulda Woulda Shoulda

  • Summary: This movie is based on some pretty great comic books made by Dave Stephens, who may have singlehandedly revived interest in Bettie Page back in the 1970s. This had potential to be a great little film, 'til it got Disney-fied.
