BURNING OUT HIS FUSE, UP THERE ALONE, US, 121MIN
This moderate musical biopic of veteran singersongwriter Elton John ain’t quite another Bohemian Rhapsody. In truth, the first Mamma Mia! is a more relevant reference point for this cheesy, breezy rewrite of Elton’s colourful life and times. The star attraction, as it should be, is Elton’s thick back catalogue of classic hits. Tap your toes to those, and roll your eyes at the rest.
