    I know a person should have a clear head while writing a review.....but if not for the admiration of Elton John and his songs, the rating would have been lower. Don't get me wrong though : the movie is good, but not Good enough to be nominated for G.G.'s Best picture. Same goes for Egerton's performance, and It seems like the HollywoodForeign Press Association has the same love for for Elton to give him best actor amongst the likes of Craig, Di Caprio and Murphy. Some scenes were fantastic though, noting the crocodile rock performance at the troubadour for one, but the film mainly focused on Elton's rise to fame, his love interests and drug addictions in the 80s. This is a definite recommendation for fans, but I'm not entirely sure neutrals will have the same admiration for the picture.

    Not nearly as satisfying as Bohemian Rhapsody but well done and paints the story of Elton John through musical numbers. Taron Edgerton gives a brave no hold barred portrayal of a one of a kind talent who had many demons. The supporting cast is strong but this is Edgerton's movie all the way. The fantasy sequences can get over the top but I am glad I saw it. 11-29-2019

    Falls prey to a lot of the typical biopic cliches and the ending is a little too sentimental but for long stretches its a fun musical anchored by Egerton's performance.

    It's as dazzling, melodic and deep as its musical subject. Rocketman displays the worldwide-sensation in an intimate light that's both emotional and spectacular with all of its glorious noteworthy-numbers and a truly remarkable performance from Taron Egerton. 4/5
