This was a bit different as biopics go. More like a musical fantasy of Elton John’s life.

Taron Edgerton plays John and does a great job of singing all the songs. He doesn’t sound exactly like John but that’s O.K.

I like that they showed the collaboration between him and Bernie Taupin. I remember hearing John say one time, “it just works.”

Great music and a little weird at times but I liked it.

One thought on “Rocketman

  1. I liked it except I wasn’t expecting “breaking into song”…..I am allergic to Musicals and would have passed on the movie if I knew it had a Musical flavor.
