Re: OFFICIAL The Rocketeer Appreciation Thread
Just read the original comic for the first time and i must say this is an instance where i prefer the Film much more, while it may be fun, the cameos from other pulp heroes just end up making the comic feel less like its oun thing and story, in the film there's also an actual plot and a structure with a begining, middle and end.
It's a real shame the original film never took off or had sequels, would have loved to see how the Trilogy would have turned out. The only way i can see the doing the reboot well is by skipping the origin completelly and just having Cliff as The Rocketeer and investigating something in California by the Government. Cargo of Doom sounds like a neat story to use as the basis for a reboot, but without the twist being dinossaurs.
