Rocket Man

Rocketman is the story of Elton John’s life. This is an authorised version of his life, so it is told from his point of view.

Back when he was Reggie Dwight he showed great musical ability. The young actor playing him, Kit Connor, is good as is the actor who plays him in later life, Taron Egerton. Stephen Graham plays Dick James to a tee and Bryce Dallas Howard also shines as Sheila Eileen. In fact, the performances overall are good and yet, l have to be honest and say l didn’t enjoy it as much as Bohemian Rhapsody.

If you love Elton John’s music this is the film for you. It is the music that is the stand out star of the film. Elton John and Bernie Taupin created classics that still sound great today. Listen to the man himself sing Rocket Man at Royal Festival Hall back in the 70’s.
