ROCKETMAN is just a perfect movie! An excellent biopic with an excellent plot and excellent acting, as well as with an incomparable soundtrack and atmosphere working in all aspects.
Now I will disassemble everything in detail …
1. The script
The plot accordingly tells about one of the greatest and legendary pop / rock and roll music performers – Elton John. And to be more precise – about his life and the difficulties that he experienced.
It so happened that a wretched circus called Central Partnership cut out some of the key scenes from the picture, resulting in plot holes, and at some points not everything is clear, and sometimes something is missing to realize the complete chaos that was going on around the musician. And if itÂs straightforward to clarify, they cut 100% with kissing men, as well as 85/90% of scenes with alcohol and drugs, although 18+ is in the form of an age limit. And what happened? … And there was open censorship due to the fact that some of the so-called “clown rental company” were homophobic. Otherwise, I have no idea how to explain the two cut-off final slides from the credits, which say that Elton is happily married to David Furnish, and also brings up children. Yes, in our country you can do this! Alas.
But, despite this, I will return to the plot itself. I will evaluate the whole product, and not what was put in the cinema. The story is sincere, in many respects difficult and quite true.
And from this all the integral image of the hero – Elton John. You empathize with him, understand in many ways, and most importantly – imbue him with a story about your life. The result is a complete and understandable portrait of the artist, which is the most important basis in all biopic.
And overall: Lee Hall wrote a great script, just flawless. Words arenÂt even enough …
Theron Edgerton just flawlessly plays Elton. It was all so convincing that you start to think that this is the same Reginald Dwight. Each emotion is real and you believe his hero. I hope this time he will be given at least an Oscar nomination 2020. He really deserves it!
Also in the picture, Jamie Bell plays perfectly in the image of Bernie Topin – the author of the texts. Also a very good job. It was through his character that Elton later began rehabilitation from all addictions. Richard Madden also looked good in the role of manager – John Reed, as well as Bryce Dallas Howard in the image of the musician’s mother – Sheila.
Well, if you evaluate in general, then the work of the actors at the highest level. Therefore, I really hope that at least Theron will be awarded the Academy Award nomination.
Here she is constantly changing depending on the periods of the musician’s life. Initially, it seems like she plays with less or less vivid colors, and then complete gloom and hopelessness, from which, it would seem, there is no way out at all, but it turns out to be not so. Then everything starts to recover in the right direction, which can be seen both in the colors of the picture and in the actions of the characters, and, of course, through the soundtrack of the picture, which is simply incomparable.
That is, the atmosphere is triggered and somehow affects the perception as a whole, no matter who says it.
To begin with, I just love the music of Elton John.
The picture contains the most diverse songs from various stages of the musicianÂs life. Here, like Crocodile Rock with Bennie and the Jets, as well as Tiny Dancer, Rocketman and IÂm Still Standing. The most different in sound and writing style. And most importantly, all the tracks were performed by the actors of this film, most of them by Theron Edgerton. And I want to say that this is cool enough for this picture. New performance – new emotions. And this is always excellent.
And also specially for this project, Bernie and Elton recorded a completely new song, which Elton performed with Theron, which finally finishes you after the session and leaves a positive impression.
Well, in general: the sound is simply gorgeous! Each track is a recognized masterpiece of pop music. And this is one of the reasons to go to this fantastic movie in the cinema.
According to the result:
We get just an excellent biopic about the legendary musician who opens up to us from a completely different perspective. The film has a truly excellent script with registered characters, through which later an integral image of Elton John is created, and a fairly sincere and interesting plot, as well as an incredible soundtrack, a constantly changing atmosphere that is always different, which creates a contrast between the periods of the composer’s life, and impeccable acting, in particular Theron Edgerton, who was noticed in part thanks to the cartoon Illumination “Sing”, which is quite surprising.
Personally, I liked this musical biopic, and I think that it is much better than last year’s ÂBohemian Rhapsody in almost all respects.
It’s really worth it to go to the movies. True, the plot holes, of course, are thanks to the Central Circus Partnership, but anyway, despite this, you will still get tremendous viewing pleasure. And at home, you can already find the very cut scenes and watch them for a complete picture of the plot component. Thus, you simultaneously support the authors of the picture and get positive emotions.
Many thanks to Dexter Fletcher for this masterpiece movie!
