Who knew Taron Egerton would pull off such a good Elton John? I sure didn't. With its glamorous and slightly over-the-top spectacles, Rocketman brings out the life from Elton John's very widely acclaimed discography. A must-watch for fans of musicals and anyone down for an emotional journey!

What are critics saying?


Empire by

A sequin-encrusted delight. On paper it reads like a by-the-book biopic; on screen it explodes with the kind of colour and energy that only Elton John himself could invoke.


The Hollywood Reporter by David Rooney

As a fantasia on the making of Elton John, Rocketman at the very least commits wholeheartedly to its flashy eccentricity, and for many, that will be more than fun enough.


IndieWire by Eric Kohn

Rather than revealing much about the man behind the music, Rocketman seems more content to hover inside of it, exploring his unique synthesis of blues, rock, and every other relevant genre as a natural extension of his personality.


Los Angeles Times by Justin Chang

As with its beloved subject and his enormous catalog of multiplatinum earworms, the movie’s familiarity turns out to be crucial to its charm.


Variety by Peter Debruge

While Lee’s script steers Elton’s life from the “Billy Elliot”-like tropes of his daddy issues to the equally trite “Walk the Line”-esque cautionary tale of what happens when fame causes talented musicians to forget who they once were, Fletcher at least has Elton’s music to fall back on.


Time Out by Phil de Semlyen

If there’s one thing Rocketman does have in common with Bohemian Rhapsody, it’s a commanding central performance.


The Telegraph by Robbie Collin

Not only does Egerton have Elton’s look and mannerisms down to an uncanny degree, he also musters up enough of his subject’s signature showmanship to give a performance that’s joyously at peace with its own preposterousness.


TheWrap by Steve Pond

It’s all grand and fun and corny, a musical fantasy that reaches for the sky and gets there often enough to make it diverting but also frustrating.


Screen Daily by Tim Grierson

Rocketman is so energetic that it’s possible to be swept away by its enthusiasm for putting Reg on a pedestal. Too often, though, the film just flattens you, demanding fealty to Sir Elton.
