A lot of fun

on 6/16/2012

One of my favorites. Old enough to have read the original comic when it came out. Had the feel of an old movie from the period, with decent special effects. Acting was a bit over the top, but obviously meant to be. A lot of clevr humor and entertaining action. Blu-Ray should have had extras, though. It is a premium (BD) anniversary edition after all and I find it hard to imagine they don't have the content for at least a featurette or two. Read More

Editors Note
Note In 1936 Hollywood, a young pilot and his mentor friend stumble on a rocket pack. After figuring out how to use it, the pilot becomes a hero, sought after by newspapers, Howard Hughes, the FBI, the Mob and the Nazis. This romantic, old-fashioned film features a sweeping soundtrack by James Horner.
Plot Summary
Summary In the tense atmosphere preceding World War II, millionaire Howard Hughes develops the invention of the century: a high-powered mini jet-pack. Nazi agents steal a prototype of the device, but lose it on an isolated airstrip during a frantic chase by feds. Aspiring pilot Cliff Secord accidentally finds the pack, and soon he's zooming through the air, spinning, flipping and crashing into the occasional barn. But when Cliff uses it to rescue an unconscious pilot plummeting to his death, the press dubs him "the rocketeer" and Nazis are hot on his trail.| Errol Flynnesque actor and Nazi agent Neville Sinclair hires gangsters to go after him. Devious Sinclair will stop at nothing to secure the invention for the fascists -- including kidnapping Cliff's girlfriend, Jenny. With flair and courage, Cliff dons his rocketeer outfit and saves the free world from the encroaching Nazi menace.
