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.
Fresh: The film is awash in all kinds of surprises that are too juicy to reveal.
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.
Fresh: Based on a comic book, deliciously corny but not campy, "The Rocketeer" is the movie Dick Tracy and Batman wanted to be.
Loved the movie and shared it with my kids years ago. I have looking for it regularly for years so I can share it with my grandsons. Please make it available for purchase.
