| Overall Reaction |

Paramount Pictures delivers Rocketman to 4K UHD Blu-ray with a great Dolby Vision presentation and a solid Atmos mix. Rocketman has a ton of fantastic music, some artfully staged song and dance sequences. Taron Egerton loses himself in the performance.  The special features were enjoyable to watch. Definitely one to add to the collection.
