Rocketman ★★★★

Rocketman is whimsical and full of life. It takes the life of a beloved rockstar and presents the good, the bad, and the impossible in a way that so perfectly encompasses the heart, soul, and accomplishments of said life.

Taron Egerton is truly magnificent. It really shows how he stepped into the shoes of Elton and ran in them. His performance was mesmerizing and simply amazing to watch.

It has a lot of standard musical biopic gripes but it also has a lot more. The passion in this project is tangible.
