MOVIE REVIEW:The Rocketeer
Auhtor:

   

The hero of this big screen comic book adventure is a brash young test
pilot in pre-World War II Los Angeles who finds a stolen rocket pack
and, just as quickly, finds himself the target of both an FBI manhunt
and a syndicate of Nazi spies. The film has all the expected
ingredients of a summertime blockbuster: action, excitement, and (of
course) state-of-the-art special effects (circa 1990). Add some early
aviation nostalgia, a little tongue-in-cheek patriotism, and a
mock-Hindenburg disaster climax, and the result is a certified crowd
pleaser with more heart than most. The plot loses steam when it stalls
on a routine damsel-in-distress formula, but the script neatly fills in
some of the more awkward gaps in the original graphic novel (most of us
would call it a comic book), and offers a better defined set of
villains, including Timothy Dalton as a swashbuckling movie star/enemy
agent modeled after Errol Flynn. The convincing period flavor was
achieved by substituting the town of Santa Maria for pre-war (i.e.
pre-smog) LA.
