    Taron's performance is dynamite and really deserved an Academy Award nomination...
  • Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
    Great biopic and great acting by Taron Egerton. The flaw of the movie is that the story is formulaic and follows what most biopics are like.

    The caption says it all. Well directed and acted. An honest look at Elton John's early years.

    With flamboyant costumes, leap-of-the-screen cinematography and relentless pacing, Rocketman tells the story of rock icon Elton John with an unmatched energy that truthfully represents the man's persona in real life. Taron Egerton's performance is spectacular in this fantastical music biopic.

    As someone who gew up loving Elton I was looking for more "meat" then a musical of all of his songs.. The acting was really good yes but the story left me wanting to know more then there was.

    This is a must see! It is a cinematic masterpiece and Taron Egerton is perfect for the role.

    Taron Egerton is amazing as Elton John. The film is a biopic that hits the beats that it needs too but it is inventive because they use songs to progress the story and show a development of time, which I really liked. There are some pacing issues with the film but that doesn't change how much fun and how good this film was. I did enjoy hearing the catalog of great Elton John songs.

    So disappointed. This was just 2 hours of my life i won't get back. It just feels like a superficial, Rose tinted glasses look at his life. Even when he's a bad person he manages to come across like a Saint! It's self-indulgent and doesn't really tell us anything interesting about his life. It's also filmed in a artsy interpretational way, you are always reading between the lines, no really quoted conversations, just all from Elton John's point of view. Even his fake marriage was from his point of view! No reference to him really meeting or being friend with anyone except his very small circle. If you want to watch Elton John's boastful, self-indulgent view of his own self importance watch this. Again so disappointing.
