Witness the tale of Reg Dwight, the fat kid from nowhere, who scales the summit of fame. Rocketman brings forth the story of one of pop culture’s greatest icons, Elton John, to the big screen.
Taron Egerton, known for his role as Eggsy in the Kingsman series, gives an amazing performance. As the star who evolves into something entirely different as fame creeps into his life, he does justice to the role. After the success of Bohemian Rhapsody and Rami Malek’s Oscar win, the entire world was waiting for Rocketman with bated breath.
Finally, the wait is over. As the “extroverted introvert” Taron brings forth an inspiring performance. The movie deals with many chapters taken from the life of Reg, including the journey of writing “Your Song”. the deep bond between Reg and Bernie Taupin, which serves as the crux of the entire movie. The brotherhood between the singer and his lyricist is exemplary.
Whereas Rami lip-synched and used an impersonator, Taron sang all the songs himself. This film is being produced by Elton John himself and is shot like a musical. There are some inaccuracies including the performance of “Crocodile Rock” and so on.
