Reliving the classic tropes of the 1930s and 40s movie serials, THE ROCKETEER blasted onto screens in 1991 but never seemed to break through with audiences. Leave your 3 word review and tell us why.
The Rocketeer (1991)
Originally conceived as the first in a three-part trilogy, THE ROCKETEER featured a clean cut, All-American hero and a cast of expected sidekicks, mentors, girlfriends and, of course, Nazis. Based on Dave Stevens’ graphic novel, the film is a fun romp and definitely worth the watch – especially if you love old movies and old movie serials like RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON and COMMANDO CODY: SKY MARSHAL OF THE UNIVERSE.
Here’s a quick summary:
Straight from the pages of a pulp comic from a past era, the Rocketeer recreates 1930’s Hollywood, complete with gangsters, Nazi spies, and the growth of the Age of Aviation. Young pilot Cliff Secord stumbles on a top secret rocket-pack and with the help of his mechanic/mentor, Peevy, he attempts to save his girl and stop the Nazis as The Rocketeer.
