A dizzy, bedazzling biopic that leaves no sequin or fantasy sequence unturned. There’s a lot of Technicolor flair in Dexter Fletcher’s flamboyant study of Elton John — and a beating heart in British actor Taron Egerton’s portrayal of an artist whose prodigious talent was matched only by his personal demons and desperate hunger for love. [This is a] musical extravaganza anchored less in the real world than in a sort of glittery jukebox Narnia...Screenwriter Lee Hall (WAR HORSE, BILLY ELLIOT) unfurls his origin story — the shy, lonely boy who became an outrageous, equally lonely superstar. [T]his Rocketman is the starry-eyed cosmonaut the part demands, and endearingly human too. (Excerpted from EW).
