Though dealing with familiar issues, Rocketman takes off with more intense energy than most movies about popular music stars.
June 25, 2021
Rocketman transcends its well-worn form with beautifully executed flights of fantasy that encapsulate the carefree joy of song.

Taron Egerton is nothing short of a revelation.
May 11, 2021
Taron Egerton stars as the iconic pop star in a movie-musical that doesn't shy away from showing us Elton's dark side.
April 29, 2021
A musical simply bursting with the joy of existing.
April 15, 2021
A giddy yet sobering film that is part chronological biopic and part musical fantasy that's bound to have fans tapping their feet.
March 3, 2021
An insulting movie ... desperately groping for some semblance of autobiography.
February 27, 2021
Showing how fantastical the ups and downs of fame, fortune and rock stardom can be by sashaying through a sea of surreality, the result is a winning marriage of form and feeling.

Rocketman doesn't follow the conventions of most music biopics, and it's all the better for it.
February 8, 2021
... a lot better than it probably has a right to be.

Glittering eye candy with much humanity on display.

I recommend Rocketman to audiences that are fans of musicals, emotional journeys, and movies about real-life people. It's one of the best movies of the year, and deservingly so.

In the leading role, Taron Egerton absolutely shone as Elton. The fact he actually sang so many of his iconic songs, and did them well, is something that should be celebrated for years to come.

It's a majestic ode to the beloved icon with directorial flair.

Glory and fame always come at a price [Full Review in Spanish]
August 20, 2020
In its music, drama, romance and fantasy, it never forgets the human side of the icon from which it's telling the story. Magnificent film. [Full review in Spanish]

Whatever Rocketman' s shortcomings, or its subject's, the film is an exhilarating ride and a reminder of why so much of Elton John's music is appealing and enduring.
July 29, 2020
It is a purely conventional, predictable and frivolous biopic that barely brushes the surface of the protagonist. [Full review in Spanish]
July 28, 2020
In the context of Elton John's life, many of his songs take on extra meaning. The result feels fantastical and edges into the realm of magical realism; if that wasn't built to tell Elton John's story, I don't know what was.
July 28, 2020
The film works best when it's too fast for its hero. It's frustrating, then, that it's too fast for itself as well.
