A classic from the 90's. You know what to expect. Lavish set pieces and some overacting. Overall it was pretty well done and can be compared to Bram Stoker's Dracula in its directorial aspects.

This reviewer recalls this as a decent entertaining superhero. The cast impressive with Dalton, Connelly, Sorvino and Arkin. Unfortunately, the film never really got its credit due to its simplistic nature and light plot. It boasts as one of the few pioneers of superhero flicks involving the mob and even Nazi's. The Rocketeer however is an innovative action adventure that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Rip-roaring old school comic strip fun featuring the ever likeable Alan Arkin, the lovely Jennifer Connelly and the dashingly villainous Timothy Dalton. Great aerial sequences, funny touches and a spectacular climax involving mobsters shooting it out with Nazi commandos and an exploding zeppelin.

Good old fashioned adventure film. Needed a bit more polish, though.

Tried to ride the superhero wave, but got lost in the shuffle. It doesn't help they picked a cult rather than a popular hero to base a movie off of. A nice effort for the time, but gets lost among more memorable films.

Not as fast as "The Rocketeer", but pretty good

With World War II raging half-a-world away, and 1938's Los Angeles appears not to be involved in the war.

Los Angeles, which is also known as "Hollywoodland" (back then), is a place where dreams are made. One of those with dreams is stunt-pilot "Cliff Seacord" (Billy Campbell), one of which is to spend the rest of his life with his girlfriend, "Jenny" (Jennifer Connely), herself having the dream of becoming a leading actress in movies.

After being shot down in a fire fight between Federal law enforcement and the Mob, "Cliff" discovers a jet pack he eventually finds out was designed by billionaire aviator, "Howard Hughes" (Terry O'Quinn).

"Seacord" eventually discovers that the Nazis are after the jet pack. So, they hire a secret agent who hides in the public eye.

Now, "Sea...
