Comic-based adventure starring Bill Campbell as a dashing pilot in 1930s LA who becomes an airborne crimefighter after stumbling upon a prototype rocket pack. Honey, I Shrunk The Kids director Joe Johnston piles on the Saturday morning serial-style thrills, with Jennifer Connelly on girlfriend duty and Alan Arkin as chief mechanic. Meanwhile, Timothy Dalton reverts to villainous type following his stint as 007...
Here's an enjoyable adventure, set in 1938, about a revolutionary rocket pack that, when strapped to a man's back, can jet him around the skies.
But when hero Bill Campbell uses it in a daring aerial rescue, he attracts the attention of not only the FBI and aviation pioneer Howard Hughes (Terry O'Quinn - Locke in Lost), but also a group of Nazi infiltrators led by a swashbuckling movie star (former 007 Timothy Dalton).
A colourful B-caper.
