Rocketman QuickViews

June 19, 2019 // in QuickView - Micro Reviews by David Deverett

We have waited a very long, long time for an Elton John biopic to happen. Now we have one: Rocketman.

 

Since he was a young boy Elton John (Taron Egerton) had an ear for music and playing piano. Through the course of the film we see him meet his writing partner Bernie Taupin (Jamie Bell), fall in love with his manager John Reid (Richard Madden, Robb Stark on Game of Thrones) and all the other ups and downs throughout his life.

 

Thanks to an amazing performance by Egerton as Elton John along with a powerful story, fine supporting cast and exciting musical sequences all based from the team of John and Taupin, Rocketman does have some similarities to Bohemian Rhapsody (i.e. story and director Dexter Fletcher) but is edgier and more in-depth in every incredible way.

 

Office Rating: 10/10
