Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Based on a retro-styled comic book hit of the '80s, this Disney film was meant to launch a whole line of Rocketeer films--but the series began and ended with this one. That's too bad, because this underrated Joe Johnston film has a certain loopy charm. The story centers on a pre-World War II stunt pilot (Bill Campbell) who accidentally comes into possession of a rocket-propelled backpack much coveted by the Nazis. With the aid of his mechanic pal (Alan Arkin), he gets it up and running, then uses it to foil a plot by a gang of vicious Nazi spies (is there any other kind?) led by Timothy Dalton. Jennifer Connelly is on hand as the love interest, but the real fun here is when the Rocketeer takes off. There's also a nifty battle atop an airborne blimp. --Marshall Fine

Product Description

The pilots' hangout in the film, the Bulldog Cafe, is based on an actual 1920's Los Angeles restaurant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good film, Lousy DVD March 1 2010
Format:DVD
Entertaining family film that had great special effects for the time and is begging to be remade for a new generation. Unfortunately Disney spent no time restoring it. The DVD looks like a poor VHS transfer and has no auto-sizing feature leaving it up to you to zoom in and find a good fit on your home theater.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Science Fiction Flick June 7 2004
Format:DVD
The Rocketeer is an excellent science fiction film. It begins when a pilot played by the underrated actor Bill Campbell finds a rocket suit. Turns out that the suit was created by scientists working for Howard Hughes who is working with J. Edgar Hoover on a project to combat the Nazi threat. Timothy Dalton shines as the evil Nazi spy and Paul Sorvino plays a most convincing Mafia boss. The action is fast and furious and is never dull. The music and acting are great too.
My rating: 5 out of 5

5.0 out of 5 stars I Like It! Jan. 10 2004
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch Movie... So-So DVD July 12 2004
Format:DVD
I ordered "The Rocketeer" over a year ago and finally had chance to watch it this past weekend. I haven't seen it in several years, and I must say, it's even better than I remembered it! Billy Campbell is terrific and Jennifer Connely glows. Alan Arkin is a reliable sidekick... and Timothy Dalton positively shines as the villain of the piece! The movie has a Saturday matinee feel to it, but with top-notch production values. It also has a great sense of humor. It's one of the best movies that no one saw. Too bad. I was disappointed with the picture quality of my dvd. Is this common for this particular release, or did I get a lemon? Also would have like to have seen some additional extra features. I know I saw a featurette on creating the rocket-pack scenes somewhere many years ago. Regardless... This is one movie I'm really glad to have. I'll be watching and re-watching it for years to come.
