ROCKETMAN MOVIE REVIEW
Rocketman is directed by Dexter Fletcher and stars Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, and Bryce Dallas Howard. This movie is a musical fantasy about the fantastical human story of Elton John's breakthrough years. I did enjoy most of this movie and that is because of the performance by Taron Egerton. I was blown away by how good he is especially since he does all of his own singing. The songs were a lot of fun there were some that I had heard before and didn't realize they were Elton John songs. Jamie Bell is also good as Bernie Elton John's primary writer. He is fantastic in the movie. I did like seeing how Elton John grew up in a family that didn't really care, but some of those scenes did drag on a little too long. Also, the movie had three or four times when I thought it was going to end and after a while, I start to get annoyed. It does hit the beats of your normal biopic that we have seen many times before. 3 out of 5 stars for Rocketman. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
