Emotional, raw and beautiful. A masterpiece and a powerful story of despair and redemption
Moving, raw, emotionally charged life story of a legend who suffers and eventually triumphs over his demons. Excellent acting performances, fantastic musical presentations. Loved everything about it
Messy. Dancers, inaccurate chronological order of songs. Boring.
Didn't love it; but it was a good movie! Taron Edgerton does an amazing job of becoming Elton John
I don’t like musicals. I liked Bohemian Rhapsody because it featured a solid biopic theme on Mercury. And I feel this didn’t do the same for Elton John. I love the music however..
loved the outfits, not the movie so much, music was great, that is it.
Much better than Bohemian Rhapsody, so there you have it and I am a Queen fan, but that was a whitewashed version of Freddie's life. This movie is more truthful.
This is a great movie that gives much insight into Elton John's music and his troubled life. I grew up with his songs and heard many rumors concerning his addiction issues, so this movie confirmed much of those rumors. Taron Egerton did an amazing job in the lead role, as did all of the others in this film. Everyone was very believable, and I quickly got caught up in the story. If you are an Elton John fan, this is a must see! If you are not a fan, then you might be after watching the movie.
Beautiful movie: costumes, music, story. Primarily fantasy sequences tell the story of the darkest part of Elton John’s life. The all-star cast work passionately to tell this story. Some sex scenes and drug abuse, which was part of Elton’s life at that time.
I went this afternoon with a friend of mine. we had liked the movie
The acting is fantastic and the movie is great. What a life Elton John lived it is the price of fame
Moving to see what the cost of Fame really can be!........excellent movie
It was a musical, a big disappointment ! Not at all what u think it's going to be .absolutely no comparison to bohemian rapsody. Honestly thought more of Elton before seeing this .
Taron Egerton did an amazing job portraying Elton John . I was thrown a little by the flick being a musical , but honestly it was a great way to portray Eltons flamboyant life and performances . I'm not sure on the accuracy of the events in the film but it was interesting to see how the songs came about .
I didn't love it. Bohemian Rhapsody beats it hands down. It wasn't what I expected, it's a musical like Moulin Rouge vs a docu drama like Bohemian Rhapsody. Not against musicals but a story with concerts would have been a better presentation, imho.
I was very disappointed in the movie. There were so many graphic homosexual scenes in the movie that it took away from much of the story and the music. There could have been more about the concerts and the successes in his life.
excellent movie of music legend. Great music as well.
Excellent. Every bit as good as Bohemian Rhapsody, Dexter Fletcher's last film, if not better.
excellent movie, Taron Egerton was amazing as Elton!
Great musical tribute to Elton John. Taron Egerton transformed into Elton John. The supporting cast was fantastic as well.
Amazing music and extraordinary cast! Not your average biopic. The Moulin Rouge for this generation.
Right up there with bohemian rhapsody! Great acting and music! Love learning about the lives of these musical geniuses! I would hope that Elton is now having a loving home life.
