Read our film review (in Spanish) Rocketman
“This is not just a biopic of a musician, it’s an actual musical. Think Billy Elliot with a twist of Dennis Potter all glued together with Elton John’s back catalogue and a variety of characters who suddenly segue from speech into song.”
“This may not have every beat of John’s life, but by God, it’s got the rhythm and the blues of it and, more importantly it’s not scared to wear its heart along with its rhinestones on its sleeve.”
— Eye For Film
“Dexter Fletcher, the director of this film and also of “Bohemian Rhapsody” (in his last weeks of filming), makes “Rocketman” an honest story where he eludes how the different people around Reggie Dwight molded the musician, and with a new name , Elton John.”
