The Rocketeer is real blast! It's a fun, truly action-packed adventure that should have been much more successful in the theaters. It's funny how some real stinkers make it big, and some great movies just go nowhere. The Rocketeer is definitely in the latter group. Bill Campbell is perfect as Cliff Secord, and I loved Alan Arkin as his pal/mentor 'Peevy.' It's a little jarring to see James Bond playing the bad guy, but Timothy Dalton works wonderfully as the movie star/villain. A thrill ride from curtain to curtain. A great family film, but be forewarned, there are a couple of scenes with some disturbing off-screen violence from Tiny Ron as Lothar. Younger children might find those a little too scary. But overall, everybody in my family liked The Rocketeer.
