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.
