Well worth the admission price. Highly entertaining. Dexter Fletcher is on a bit of a (rock and) roll.

I don't know who I would have chosen to play Elton John, but I doubt that Taron Egerton would have been an obvious choice for me. However, he does a cracking job (in my humble view), and he is a very competent singer too.

Followed this up by watching Taron Egerton at home in Kingsman, and then both Taron Egerton and Elton John in Kingsman : The Golden Circle  ;D 

If Golden Circle proves one thing - it is that Elton John can't act!
Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

Doubt if I'll ever watch this, but it would definitely win in a choice with Bohemian Rhapsody.

Went to the cinema with Mrs B to see this on Monday....

I wasn't as convinced as Reg. It was OK. A bit contrived and sets up nicely for the "stage musical" which I expect to see in theatres in the West End within 18 months...

Cynical? Moi?
