That's about it. The first half of the movie is somewhat boring, but the action picks up once he finds the jetpack. Basically, it's like a Disney movie on steroids, but a watered-down version of Captain America and Iron Man mixed together. It's a lot more style than substance is what I'm trying to say. The 1930's setting is cool, but I would have liked something a bit more modern. There's an okay love interest, but she's no Pepper Potts or Peggy Carter. And the story is way to upbeat for a movie about Nazis

I'm excited to watch this tonight with my young boys. It was fun to watch as a kid, and as a family. For young children there are two scenes to be aware of: One is a murder scene (in the hospital while nurses are watching TV), and one scene when Jenny and Neville Sinclair are in a room and she asks him to help her change into "something more comfortable" before knocking him out....but they don't kiss, etc. Fun movie if you like aviation, action and a little romance for the whole family.

Elevated popcorn flick with loveable characters, a tight plot, and a delightful large pyrotechnics budget. Edgy for a children's film, but in a very reasonable way. Idk what to tell you, this silly little movie cracks my cold black heart wide open and reminds me just how magical film can be
