Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he film owes its success less to shock value than to sheer cinematic inventiveness and Egerton’s total immersion in the role." - 05/28/2019 Rolling Stone


5 stars out of 5 -- "The result is a riotous fact-meets-fiction swirl...all tied together by a barnstorming central performance from Taron Egerton." - 05/26/2019 The Guardian


"From the get-go, this film tells us we’re in for a real SHOW....Elton John deserves a movie operating on a much grander scale than a standard, paint-by-numbers showbiz biopic, and ROCKETMAN is a suitably snazzy vehicle." - 05/21/2019 Chicago Sun-Times


"It’s fan service of an especially and characteristically generous kind. It’s certain that Elton John has nothing left to prove, but it’s also possible that he’s underappreciated." - 05/28/2019 New York Times


"[A] cannily honed machine, absolutely sure of its purpose, so you rather feel you’ve been sold a complete deluxe package, as you might in a flawlessly staged Broadway or West End show..." - 05/31/2019 Film Comment
