An excellent film score and well executed pencil and sketch animation, makes Rocketboy an effective medium in delivering its message. Rocketboy starts off with an innocent dream for flight. War, though, challenges this dream. Despite of this,  the child's innocent dreams triumph over the violence of war. Due to its feel-good ending, audiences will definitely leave satisfied after watching this film. 4.5 stars!

With the perfect choice of background music and sketch book inspired animation, Rocketboy pleasantly shows the moral triumph of innocent ideas over armed conflict. Rocketboy starts off showcasing the interest of a small child in flight. Ironically, he and his community is directly affected by armed conflict using fighter planes and rockets. Despite this, the child's ideas of innocent flight ultimately win through determination and superior moral ground. Innocence is further emphasized by the choice of animation; in this case, through pencil and sketch.
