The Rocketeer: 20th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Celebrate the 20th anniversary of director Joe Johnson's ("Captain America: The First Avenger") action-filled, witty "The Rocketeer". And now with state-of-the-art digital restoration and enhanced high definition sound, experience it as it jets off for the first time on Blu-ray(TM). The discovery of a top-secret jetpack hurls test pilot Cliff Secord into a daring adventure of mystery, suspense, and intrigue! Cliff encounters an assortment of ruthless villains, led by a Hollywood screen star who's a secret Nazi spy (Timothy Dalton). With the help of his actress girlfriend, the young pilot battles enormous odds to defeat his foes who are anxious to use the device in an evil plan to rule the world! The dangerous mission transforms the ordinary young man into an extraordinary hero.

Review: The Rocketeer was one of my favorite films of the 1990s.  The movie, based on a comic book of the same name, was an absolute gem.  The film basically centers on WWII America...a young man finds a rocket pack..there are nazi spies..beautiful starlets..its got it all!  This family friendly film pre-dates high-quality action films like Iron Man with the same amount of wit and quality.  This is the first time the movie has come to high-definition blu-ray and it looks fantastic!  This one is a must-have.
