The Rocketeer Reviews

A charming adventure tale, in the spirit of 1930's serials, The Rocketeer is a fun ride.

Movie Metropolis

One of Disney's most underrated films, and I can't for the life of me figure out why, unless it's the absence of a big-name star.

A charmer in its gee-whiz, irony-light resuscitation of the movie serials of the '30s. [Blu-ray]

While The Rocketeer never crashes, it's a bumpy ride of cartoonish characters, a flimsy plot and an overall sense of letdown.

It's not as dark or as edgy as Tim Burton's Batman films, but it's still cleaner and more digestible. It's not a deep story, but it's full of fun nostalgia and action.

A beautifully directed, high-flyin' production, teeming with all sorts of classic Hollywood encounters and bizarre comic book touches...Connelly is mesmerizing -- a stupendous act of casting that elevates the room temperature of the picture.

A piece of blandly enthusiastic, B-movie pulp.

The result is a movie that looks nice and moves along efficiently, but offers little reason for anyone to watch.

This $40 million adventure fantasy puts a shiny polish on familiar elements: airborne hero, damsel in distress, Nazi villains, 1930s Hollywood glamor, and dazzling special effects.

The Rocketeer is a throwback to when movie heroes weren't burdened by irony or existential angst.

Plenty of energy has gone into making this a bustling, visually clever film with an amusing late-1930's stylishness, but the purpose of such effort is uncertain.

An overlooked classic that is alive with the heroics and nostalgia of big-studio era Hollywood.
