Rocketman is certainly braver than Bohemian Rhapsody, but that’s not ultimately what makes it a better film. The narrative is more cohesive, the main character more complex and his story more vividly presented, enhanced by knock-out musical numbers.
Rocketman tells the life story of Elton John. His rise to fame from his childhood home in the Pinner area of London to the world wide success as a mega star is covered in this bio-pic.
Taron Egerton throws himself into the role wholeheartedly and captures the energy and excitement of Elton’s early live performances with the swagger and poise of the man himself. His cocaine and alcohol addiction isn’t lingered on as much as it probably should be, but even this serves to keep the film upbeat and entertaining.
The style is cool not going to lie, it’s loud and does provide the over the top action you would expect and yes it’s a sequel so it’s more of everything.
Kingsman pays homage to the James Bond films rather than parodying it in the style of Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. Based on the Mark Millar comic book littered with hid creative quirkiness and with Vaughn’s film-making, has left a stylised-spectacle of ultra-violence much in the same fashion as their other successful franchise “Kick-Ass”.
This is the story of Eddie Edwards, the British underdog Ski Jumper who won the hearts of the world at the Winter Olympics in 1988. Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story (inspired by true events about Eddie Edwards (Taron Egerton), a courageous Ski Jumper who never stopped believing in himself.
