Storyline

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. Written by Twentieth Century Fox

Trivia

John Deacon retired from the band in 1997 and had almost no creative input into this film beyond giving his permission for songs he penned himself to be included in the soundtrack. The remaining two members, Brian May and Roger Taylor are the only two original band members still active in Queen projects while Deacon (who was the youngest band member) lives a quiet life in a London suburb with his wife of nearly 44 years, Veronica, and their grown children.

Goofs

When Freddie is looking through the London phone book for Jim Hutton's number, it lists phone numbers as starting '01 7946 xxxx', however, back in the 70s/80s, the format would've been 01 xxx xxxx (before the London number change from 01 became 071/081 and then 0171/0181 before finally becoming 020 7/8).

You go to be entertained, but find yourself moved.
25 October 2018 | by chas_newportSee all my reviews

My wife and I both enjoyed this immensely. We are Queen fans and attended the tribute concert a after Freddie died.

This film is extraordinary, first and foremost, for Rami Malek's performance. The physical resemblance is only a small part of that. He had Freddie's body language down to a tee.

But the crowning glory is the vocals. They are absolutely mind blowing. I don't know how they did it, I'm assuming it's Freddie's voice. The lip sync is flawless. If it's Malek singing, the Oscar is in the bag.

I've heard there are some negative reviews floating around. I find that astonishing. I hope Malek gets at least a few nominations for this. He should get multiple awards.
