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

Goofs

During the Smile concert, Freddie gets a pint of beer at the student bar. Both the beer taps and the pint glasses are wrong for the period. The bar taps would have far bigger handles that the bar staff would have to work manually and the beer glass would have a handle and probably be dimpled. See more »

Totally Brilliant!!!!
10 November 2018 | by skpn123See all my reviews

I was a teenager when Queen was at its peak and this film transported me back in time to where Freddie Mercury and Queen aimed to connect to their audience in a whole new way and succeeded - I particularly loved watching the reactions to Bohemian Rhapsody which no radio station would play because it was 6 minutes long intead of three and no record company would pick up - what abject fools LOL! I was totally captivated and in the moment for the whole journey and you will find you will be too - the acting is so engaged - I am sure these characters are still with each of them. Everything about the film is carefully and beautifully done - 'issues' are touched on but not politicised or exploited which makes the appeal of this film broad - be prepared to fall in love with Queen and this era of rock music all over again.
