Merits of this film - A stellar cast with a perfect intertwining of Eltons catchy songs within each scene.
Downfalls - Rocketman was a depressive, self-pitying film that seemed to scream FEEL SORRY FOR ME at every opportunity. A film that should have left the audience on a high and in love with the soundtrack, failed miserably to achieve this due to the conclusion of the film seemingly being that individual responsibility is not that important and all of your problems are the cause of someone else. A bio-pic that makes you dislike a man you once appreciated.
Nothing other than unintelligent and boringly crude. Despite the good choice of cast and the very few laughs this film delivers, the script writers lack of imagination and grip to prepubescent toilet humour is undeniable.
