    It could've been better. I'm not a fan of musicals and wasn't expecting so much of the dialog to break into song. It seemed like a Broadway musical at times. That being said, there were plenty of poignant moments that were beautifully acted. The story has lots of heart and comedy. I love Elton John's music but I didn't expect them to be performed as broadway musical numbers.

    it was an amazing movie and according to Elton John, it was very true to the facts of his life.

    This is maybe the best movie I have ever seen. Acting, singing and the way the story is told are all amazing. It should get ALL the awards.

    Having been a huge fan of Elton for over three decades, it was great to know that a movie about the life of this iconic legend was going to be created. But it was not what we received. The movie was a fantasy musical (as described), but it truly was nothing more. It was amazing that everybody was so rude and treated Elton so horribly. They makers wanted it to appear that nobody wished for Elton to succeed; that simply is not true nor even close to accurate. The musical numbers were "cute" at best. It truly felt that the music was undervalued and there needed to be plenty of carnival-like activities on the screen for people to enjoy hearing the music. The many addictions that Elton had seemed to have been made a mockery of throughout the film. In conclusion, I learned nothing new of Elton and his upbringing. In fact, I need to forget what I saw so that the what I do know through interviews and books stays intact in my mind. This movie is nothing more than a ploy to create a musical for Broadway. I know many true fans would have appreciated it if they would have just started there and left the big screen alone.

    Great Music and dance scenes but not much of a story line probably over exaggerated a little.

    Excellent! Took my grandson because we both are interested in music history.

    A great piece by Egerton, although not a fan of this kind of spontaneous musicality format with the surrealist touches it was very watchable.

    Brilliant writing to bring the story to life. Loved the song and dance numbers. Taron was excellent. Miles better than Bohemian Rhapsody - how anyone can think otherwise is mental.

    Good music, but didn't love that the movie was a musical and it was pretty sad and depressing until the last five minutes.
