One of the best cinematic comic book adaptations, The Rocketeer was supposed to be the summer of 1991's big hit, but the vastly entertaining movie didn't find a big audience. Thankfully, this Walt Disney DVD release gives the fun, exceedingly good-natured movie a proper showcase, and the film has built up a large fan base over the years. Expertly directed by Joe Johnston and shot by Hiro Narita, the DVD looks great in this widescreen letterboxed format, which also shows off James D. Bissel's extravagantly retro production design. The Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround audio track sounds robust coming out of a stereo system or out of a television set. This edition doesn't come with any worthy DVD extras, but a future edition is sure to point out The Rocketeer's many in-jokes and homages to classic Hollywood films, old rumors, and actual history.
