    If you like the music of EJ you will love this film, the decision to re-cast the songs was brave and pays off brilliantly.

    Now this one is an amazing biopic of Elton John as I also approve Taron Edgerton's portrayal.

    An incredible drama, deeping all the adversities of Elton's Life, an exciting musical. Powerful and sweet. One of my favorite films from last year.

    Instead of just a boring biopic depicting the main events of Elton's life, we get an inside look at his essence and emotions through fame. The pacing in the beginning was a little strange, but nothing to be concerned about.

    Taron Egerton saves this silly movie from being a waste of time.

    Well-made musical biography includes both the ups and downs of Elton John's career; the musical bits are good and the performances, especially Taron Egerton's, extraordinary.

    This look back at Elton John's life is engaging both in the story that it has to tell as well as the sometimes surreal and fantastical way it tells it. The transition from normal scenes to musical ones were very smooth and Taron Egerton kills it, doing all the actual singing. The costumes were on point and they did a good job nailing hard to describe feelings, like when you have that out of body experience at a concert and hit that magic moment. But the film also doesn't shy away from the dark side of stardom, which I appreciated. It's a little long, and the fact that I'm not super into the subject doesn't help, but I liked the messaging and the portrayal of what celebrity life can be like.

    A musical, a documentary, & a rehab recovery story all in one. Good back-to-back with Bohemian Rhapsody, Hairspray, or Pleasentville.

    The movie is just amazing, with Elton's music weaving his story. Taron killed it as Elton John, not by just acting as Elton but singing his songs in his own voice. Many people says that the movie is inaccurate with releases of songs, but they don't understand that the movie is not a biopic and is a musical so the music and songs have to drive the story. Must watch for every Elton John's fan or even those who aren't, because you are going to be after watching the movie.
