Critic Reviews for Rocketman

All Critics (334) | Top Critics (41)

Really, on the basis of "Rocketman," you'd think Elton John never had a moment of fun.

June 12, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

"Rocketman" is far from a drama of introspection-and, unfortunately, Egerton's performance, as directed by Fletcher, doesn't add to the protagonist's inner life.

June 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Rocketman has unusual dramatic heft for a jukebox musical, but that's a big curve on which to grade - the characters are still skin-deep.

June 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Rocketman never quite finds the wild momentum its characters seem to chase around in all those musical numbers.

May 31, 2019 | Full Review…

If you need somebody to recount the rise of a British rock god from pallid suburbia to the baroque extremes of fame, and to create a stir without causing too much of a fuss, Fletcher is your man.

May 31, 2019 | Full Review…

The story reshuffles reality, especially time and facts, and the film is more enjoyable for it.
