Rocketman | Ratings & Reviews

"I was fond of the scene in Rocketman inspired by the legendary Troubadour concert, in which Elton John (Taron Egerton) teases a rendition of Crocodile Rock – starting slow and drawing out his lines, before applying an amphetamine pep to his step and cranking the dial to 11 and bringing the house down."

"It’s been nearly 20 years since Elton John first started trying to get a film made about his life. Now the wait is finally over with the arrival of Rocketman, the visually stunning, audaciously slanted musical biopic dedicated to the flamboyant singer’s rise from obscurity to fame and fortune."

Flicks, Katie ParkerFlicks

"Rocketman sometimes feels like it's lost its way, especially near the end. But it's still a joyous celebration, a colourful story about love that can help people heal."


"It's a satisfying and even rousing film at times, but it doesn't provide much enlightenment."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"The result is a far more honest-feeling depiction of the stratospheric highs and cavernous lows of one of our greatest musical minds, with a never-better Egerton wearing his heart on his sleeve throughout."

Total FilmTotal Film

"The songs explode from the screen, time jumps catapult the story forward with exhilarating élan and even the emotional stuff lands, for the most part."

Time OutTime Out

"While it's no Moonwalker, Rocketman's splashier moments will be far more challenging to music-but-not-musical fans than Rhapsody was. However, once you let your inhibitions and reservations go, two hours won't seem like any kind of Sacrifice at all."


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

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"...contains an emotional truth that will likely resonate with you for a long, long time."


"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."
