    Taron Egerton makes this his song. Easily the best biopic of rock n roll so far. Music is beautiful, costumes incredible, and hear wrenching story telling.

    A good movie that verges on being great. The early parts are bold and exciting. The songs are integrated in fun ways. Taron Egerton knocks the performance out of the park (including the singing). It loses a bit of energy at the midway point and becomes a more conventual telling of the final two acts. I am not an Elton John fan and the film still works.

    Stimulating biographical musical film, that would have been better with Elton John's original music instead of the cast singing.

    Taron Egerton is easily the best part of this movie. He is fantastic. Pretty much everyone has a fantastic time in this movie. The songs, the actors, and the fun that had happened. I had so much fun with this movie, but than I also cried a lot. This movie made me cry. It's awesome, and I hope that Taron gets at least an Oscar nomination for this. My only problem is that the beginning was a little slow.

    Not nearly as satisfying as Bohemian Rhapsody but well done and paints the story of Elton John through musical numbers. Taron Edgerton gives a brave no hold barred portrayal of a one of a kind talent who had many demons. The supporting cast is strong but this is Edgerton's movie all the way. The fantasy sequences can get over the top but I am glad I saw it. 11-29-2019

    I loved this movie. Of course, the music throughout was wonderful but I was also really moved by the story. Elton John (Reggie) had a really painful childhood. The story showed how that pain led to his many addictions and then how he was able to ultimately face his demons and find healing through doing so. It was a beautiful story of trauma and recovery in addition to a terrific musical.

    It's great . Never liked Elton when I was young and realise it's because he was singing with Kiki Dee when I discovered punk music so he definitely couldn't compete . But actually he's a brilliant song writer and I loved this film , fun and bright and he's comes across as a spoilt brat but then he sacked the drugs and drink founded a charity and cracked on with being a grown up . He's a genius.

    Taron Egerton is a revelatory, transformative actor. The movie was very VERY well done across the board, but he was exquisite.
