Disappointingly familiar as far as musical biopics go these days. Taron Egerton is good enough as Elton John and the musical numbers are imaginative. To be honest, I'm not really an Elton John fan so instead of being entertained, I'm left wondering what's factual and what's artistic license. The story's pretty serious compared to similar films like Bohemian Rhapsody which covered similar territory yet still managed to be fun.

The spectacular presentation can't mask the rudimentary story's lack of ingenuity, but the dream sequence musical bits make up for it. The worthy "Rocketman" pays respect to Sir Elton's legendary career and influence and serves as a vastly superior alternative to almost all of the music biopics of the last several years.
