Critics reviews

Viewed 25 years later, The Rocketeer isn’t quite the old-fashioned classic that its lush period décor and vertiginously swirling James Horner score would have you believe. But it’s a likable knock-off, as well as a clear test run for Johnston’s later Captain America: The First Avenger, which was similarly steeped in Greatest Generation nostalgia.
