A young pilot stumbles onto a prototype jetpack that allows him to become a high-flying masked hero.


Directly from the pages of a mash comic from a past period, the Rocketeer reproduces 1930’s Hollywood, finished with criminals, Nazi government operatives, and the development of the Age of Aviation. Youthful pilot Cliff Secord unearths a top mystery rocket-pack and with the assistance of his technician/coach, Peevy, he endeavors to spare his young lady and stop the Nazis as The Rocketeer. Composed by Greg Bole

An action-packed, if anachronistic, look back at pulp matinee serials, The Rocketeer may ring hollow with viewers expecting more than simple fun and gee-whiz special effects.
