    Great movie that was done with the music of this iconic legend in Elton John. It was nice to see his rise to stardom, but sad to see how he struggled in his personal life from a child which helped me to gain a new respect for him as a person. Good job!

    Its better than any Bio-Topic can be. Rocketman blows away the room and gives the performance of a lifetime of a man who struggled with everything.

    First off, this is much more of a musical than Bohemian Rhapsody. I do think Taron Egerton gave a great performance as Elton and Jamie Bell also gave a great performance as Bernie Taupin but I kept thinking I wish that it would be a little bit slower at times, painting more of a picture in terms of what he was like as a child, his early years. There is a bit featured but not too much. Also when he starts to become famous, there isn't much shown in terms of his success in the UK and obviously he is a big name in the US but he must have spent more time touring the UK before he became the household name he is in America. Ok so perhaps im being a little picky - I certainly can't say I didn't enjoy the flamboyant stage performances and the choreographed numbers, I did but I suppose I felt it somehow distracted from the main story of the mans life. It certainly made me want to learn more about him. Of course I understand if he didn't want the context of certain things entirely explained as such and certainly as a film in itself, its visually quite appealing and its certainly entertaining. I also liked that its a 'warts and all' depiction - it doesn't shy away from highlighting the many addictions and other personal issues that Elton had to deal with. Its certainly a slightly different way of portraying a story like Eltons, being categorised as a musical fantasy film and I can certainly see how it qualifies as that sort of a film. If your a fan of Eltons music, then I'd recommend it, yes.

    3 years ao- While there are a few moments that skate the corny side, the film finds a way to seamlessly blend biopic and musical through an once in a lifetime leading performance and brilliant, outside the box direction.

    Absolutely one of the best biopic I've ever seen, incredible performance by Taron Egerton. A movie that moves you from the start
