    Totally a let down
    The vibes I got from this film are intitled rocker with absolutely zero accountability. I've struggled with mental health my whole life & can resonate with deep pain but the self-centered, entitled attitude this man seems to have in this film is beyond comprehension. I can understand being raw and putting yourself out there but the only vibes I got from this film is that this person is clearly allowing their mental illness to completely take over their life and make exuses for every poor choice they decide to make. Most definitely no inspiration to be found in this film , more then just pure embarrassment of the toxic behavior exused simply by "I'm a rockstar " give me a break.

    A bit slow but still a good movie
    Let me start off my saying as a die hard MGK fan, I really wanted to like this film and I did. In many many ways it was beautiful and tragic and I can acknowledge all the work and passion he put into this film. It wasn't bad at all. The premise is great. And the title track is even better.

    BUT I'm not gonna lie, I did expect more from it. It develops rather slowly. There's hardly any action and most of the scenes are just of people talking. By the end of it, I felt like nothing much really happened - which, I mean I guess is fine if that's what they were going for but I just really wish that they had developped his storyline a little more.

    Nonetheless, I did like the film. MGK was amazing in it and I would definitely watch it again.

    MGK has a Presence unlike any other!
    Colton Baker is INCREDIBLE in this movie, he has an undeniable presence that is just so effortless and cool. Very rebel/rockstar vibes that was just so intriguing to watch. However, the movie was uneventful and kinda without any real plot. It just seemed like a day in the life of a drug addict rockstar. So if you don't mind that, it was a great watch! MGK really carried this movie with just his presence, he has this IDGAF attitude which is so intriguing with a bad boy, yet vulnerable side. Damn is he HOT when he's mad! Ok I'm done, 11/10 stars for MGK but movie-wise, maybe a 5/10, well acted and great scenes :)

    Awful
    Taurus is one of the worst films I have ever seen. As someone who has seen many films depicting mental health & addiction this must be one of the most one dimensional attempts ever made. MGK is desperate to portray himself as a broken angst ridden artist at the best of times. This film feels self absorbed and try hard. The dialogue is awful. The acting even worse. The scenes of drug use felt so text book with empty dialogue which felt meaningless and so Hollywood without any grit or emotion. Even if MGKs character is meant to be depressed I still should have felt some of the internal pain from the character and I felt nothing. There was no substance to anything in this film.

    Great and challenging watch
    Mgk/Colson Baker shows off his acting skills while simultaneously being able to relate much to the film which often helps.

    Not necessarily a movie for those who don't like to feel uncomfortable though as this movie delves into dark topics but in a not so black and white way.

    I appreciate that subtlety though as you see the characters who are actively enabling the bad sides of the main character "cole" (mgk) still express care for him in their own way and thats a fact I can appreciate instead of making good characters all good and bad characters all bad. And cole at his worst sometimes doesn't even know how much of an jerk he's being and some may be uncomfortable telling him while others try to with the intent to help.

    Cole is a character who you simultaneously hate, feel bad for, & root for, which why this movie is uncomfortable is the best ways. It challenges you to look past a hard and abrasive exterior and see the heart of someone who is struggling. But at the end of the day it's hard to help someone who won't help themselves or let you help.

    It's also a look at the darker side of an industry that is supposed to being happiness and entertainment.

    Highly suggest watching this film!
    I was glued to the screen. Colson Baker killed this role; his character Cole is very believable. There were a couple of times when I giggled/smiled (Cole and Ilana's backstage moment being one of them) and I was grateful for the short amount of relief as this movie is dark and sad. Mental health issues and drug addiction are no joke especially when famous and this movie shines a bright light on it. I watched it twice and would easily watch again. Great soundtrack too - Machine Gun Kelly and Naomi Wild's collaborations are always fire. Thank you for gifting us with this beautiful and emotional movie. EST XX.

    Everything and more!!!
    Colson did an absolutely amazing job with this and the concept!!!! I knew it would be amazing anyway because Colson is such an amazing actor/singer. He is very talented and made this raw with emotion. I cried a few times and have watched it three times. It was everything I expected and more. This shows the true reality of what goes on in the music industry and needs to be stopped. It shows Mental health and drug/ alcohol addiction is real especially with being famous. Which that needs to be taken seriously and it not just be swept underneath the rug. He has always been destined for greatmess!!!Thank you so much Colson!!

    Gripping, gritty and well done
    I felt the scary reality of the raw emotion, pain and feeling of hollowness in the lead character. Wanting to be loved, but not allowing it to happen. Defending his soul from pain by creating his own self-inflicted personal torture or numbing all feeling with drugs. The musical score is dark and well-aligned to the message of this film. Being rich, famous, and surrounded by powerful people or fleeting fandom does not mean one is well, happy, and fulfilled. It will leave you contemplative and uncomfortable. Those may not be feelings you look for in a film, but a film that makes you feel is rare. Invest you time in this one. Feeling something is valuable.

    Deep role played by Colson Baker
    This was so raw and beautiful.

    Colson Baker really killed this roll.

    I know Colson related hard to this roll you could see the pain in his eyes uncanny.

    As Ruby Rose said on her instagram post he sure is raw,intelligent, hard working and he has saved so many lives.

    Everyone needs to stop putting to much effort and energy in hate and pulling others down.

    Start picking each other up Or mind your business work on yourself.

    All the unnecessary hate is such a waste of time.

    Don't hate just because you don't understand why someone is where theyre .

    He put the work in and he is killing it .

    Est fam !!

    Heartbreaking, eerie, and authentic
    Taurus is a heartbreaking, eerie, and authentic depiction of addiction and mental illness. Colson's effortless acting skills never cease to amaze me. He's truly sensational. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer.

    Many reviews have been bashing this movie for being too cliche but unfortunately it's a reality for many people, especially celebrities. I think it did a fantastic job at capturing how difficult it can be to balance life when you are constantly in the public eye and struggling with your own personal demons.

    The actors and actresses did an incredible job making this film feel like you were truly looking in on someone's personal life, not just watching a film.

    Outstanding! Must watch! Deep! Dark! Realistic!
    Colson Baker was the perfect actor for this movie. He was so raw & real. I could feel his authenticity, passion, pain, tortured lost boy state of mind. It wasn't jus thru his words, it was also heavily present n his body language, it spoke volumes. I commend him for this beautifully painful, true to life performance & hope it opens up a new line of communication n the entertainment industry. We have lost so many amazingly talented artists circled around mental health/drug addiction & we need to make a change. It is my opinion this movie is a piece of art. Had to pause 3 times to gather myself.

    Incredibly raw and moving, can't miss this one
    This movie was the best I've seen in a long time. It made you feel everything, from happy to sad to mad to confused but most notably, uncomfortable, which I think is what made Taurus so unique. Megan's two scenes hit it out of the park, they both made me cry and she didn't have a line in either. Colson's performance was insane, his skill is undeniable and the bravery to play a role that mirrors his life, as a dark version of what could have been. The movie was heart-wrenching and took a lot of courage from both Colson and Tim and the rest of the crew, will definitely be watching again tonight. Thank you Colson XX.

    A heartbreaking lesson in Empathy, the only way to experience it.
    There are 2 ways you can watch this film. One is to sit on your couch and view a tragic man's story as a bystander and make judgments about what you see. Judge the main character harshly, critically, but missing Colson Baker's narrative entirely.

    The second version is to tap into the darkest parts of the human soul, the parts few want to discuss. Feel the pain of a lost and broken man as he tries to navigate a world the only way he knows how. Through numbing his pain, lashing out at his fears and pouring his emotions into his music. This man wants so much more than he knows how to obtain. It breaks you. I'll be feeling this one for awhile. This movie sits in those uncomfortable moments & makes you feel another humans struggles...if you let it.

    Colson Baker's performance was incredible and moved me to tears. I have not seen him in any other films, nor am I a "fangirl" who blindly praises his work. This is genuine admiration for a pure talent and a film that deeply touched my soul.

    You can see "Cole" as unlovable, raw, angry or as a total jerk (if I'm watching my language) but I believe the character was portrayed that way, because that's how "Cole" saw himself every day. Think on that as you watch.

    Familiarly painful
    It felt like life, everything it made me feel felt real. There wasn't any need to explain what was happening because you just knew. This movie was a feeling, Coles feelings felt real, relatable. If I ever needed to explain what life felt like, it would be this movie.
