Rocketman is the story of rock music legend Elton John’s sad childhood and rise to worldwide fame mired by drug and sex addiction and his battle to overcome those problems and achieve happiness until he finally decides to be a homosexual. Dazzling musical numbers and a compelling performance by Taron Edgerton as Elton keep Rocketman flying smoothly, but the R-rated movie has lots of foul language and a mixed worldview with strong Romantic and pro-homosexual elements combined with some strong moral content showing the dangers of substance abuse and proving that money can’t buy happiness.
A definite must for Elton John fans, as well as music and musical lovers, Rocketman is a fun cinematic outing. It’s truly amazing how many hits the man created, and you’ll be tapping your toes to I’m Still Standing, Crocodile Rock, Tiny Dancer and numerous others. All in all, it’s a fascinating look into the life of one of the world’s biggest pop stars
