Rating: 4/5 -- This is a very sentimental film - but then isn't that the pleasure of musicals? I'm here for Rocketman's exuberant mythologising. Full Review
Rating: 8/10 -- A bright and colorful telling of a rock icon's life that shows off the ups and downs in splendorific fashion. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Elton John puts it all out there, and Taron Egerton is "Captain Fantastic" as Elton John. Full Review
While Dexter Fletcher attempts spectacle in his set pieces, he lacks the charm and technical prowess to nail them successfully. Full Review
Dim the House Lights
From the get-go, this film tells us we’re in for a real SHOW....Elton John deserves a movie operating on a much grander scale than a standard, paint-by-numbers showbiz biopic, and ROCKETMAN is a suitably snazzy vehicle.
4 stars out of 5 -- [T]he film owes its success less to shock value than to sheer cinematic inventiveness and Egerton’s total immersion in the role.
Taron Egerton offers a game take on Elton, while Jamie Bell, as Bernie Taupin, provides low-key counterpart.
Director Dexter Fletcher's biopic focuses on Elton John's early years and his meteoric rise to fame in the 1970s. It dwells on his relationships with his parents, his time as a student at the Royal Academy of Music, his enduring partnership with lyricist Bernie Taupin, his first marriage, and his romantic relationship with his manager John Reid. The film's cast includes Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, and Bryce Dallas Howard.
