    Boy! Did I want to dislike so broad commercially a movie that dared seek to capture Reggie/Elton's story. It took me about ten minutes or less to realize that was in no way going to happen. Some excellent personality portrayals, imaginatively constructed scenes and wow emotionally effective performance harmony. In the most difficult category of musical biography, so much came together in a way not so effectively achieved since Amadeus.

    A gift to musical fans, 'Rocketman' provides us with the beautiful biography of Elton John, giving us an in-depth look on his breakthrough years, and the trials and tribulations he faced throughout.

    Enjoyable for those who already love Elton and also for new fans who want to see the personal side of this musician. Characters are relatable and encourage the audience to invest in their struggles from the very beginning. I feel like this is what Bohemian Rhapsody was trying to be. The pace is done well and the triumphs are exciting and the lows are heartbreaking. Such an enjoyable film experience!

    self-absorbed, self-pitying, biopic. details John's self-destructive and self-indulgent lifestyle. very little here, except good songs, but even these are song in an unappealing broadway style.

    Enjoyed the take on rather it be a storytelling type of film it included musical set pieces. Despite a strong start it gets a bit muddled in the second act although Egerton’s performance he gives it his all.

    Although not perfect, this movie is a more-than-satisfying endeavor into the life of Elton John. Train Egerton portrays him well and it’s impressive that he was able to sing all of Elton’s music. I would argue this movie is better than Bohemian Rhapsody and does much more justice to its source material.

    It was OK. Not a bad movie, but it wasn't a good as I expected either. The acting was pretty good though.

    A harsh life, but a swell portrayal of the famous rock star who shall always be known for his uniqueness. While I didn't even grow up in the 70s (or even the 80s), he has great taste.
