“Rocketman” is the biography of Elton John starring Taron Egerton. Unlike “Bohemian Rhapsody” this film does not place the songs in the order in which they were written. Instead they are placed where they fit into the story. Egerton is great as Elton and I kept wondering who was playing his mother. It was Bryce Dallas Howard in a black wig and she was also quite good. The music is phenomenal, the acting excellent, and the costumes are outrageous, just like John’s. The main story, bedsides his list to fame is about his loneliness and addictions. The film is good, e specially if you like Elton John’s music. Unlike “Bohemian Rhapsody”, it is not great, but still worth seeing.
