Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: 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. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: The film is awash in all kinds of surprises that are too juicy to reveal. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Apr 18, 2007

Fresh: 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. – Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Undeniably, Rocketeer's overall trajectory is pleasing and winning, but it lacks the quirky charms and personal idiosyncracies that endeared other big-effects films to tot and sophisticate alike. – Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter, Jul 3, 2018
