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

Mike Myers, the producer who "loses" Queen, is himself responsible for a resurgence in Queen's popularity. Myers said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert: Mike Myers/Christiane Amanpour (2018) that during the making of Wayne's World (1992) he insisted that the song he and his friends listen to while driving be Bohemian Rhapsody. The producers of the movie felt the song wouldn't be appropriate and vetoed the idea. Myers stood his ground eventually threatening to quit the movie. Myers got his way and the movie became a huge hit and this led to the song returning to the United States charts at #2. The movie was also credited for reintroducing Queen to a new audience. Myers also said that when he was offered a chance to appear in this movie he did so immediately without bothering to read the script. See more »

Makes you realise what a loss Freddie was
24 October 2018 | by alanfield-73765See all my reviews

This movie was a brilliant portrayal of the mixed up life, and massive talent that was Mercury ... and that is in no way meant to diminish the other fabulous musicians who made up this wonderful band. Whilst Freddie's life and death are quite well documented, his inner turmoil is not - this movie opens this up for all to see, and highlights actions and individuals who had a large influence on his fragile life, both good and horrendously bad. If only he could have been happy with the knowledge that he had one of the best singing voices, if not THE best, that ever fronted a rock band. Rami Malek does a wonderful job of portraying him, and in so many ways has captured his mannerisms to a tee. Loved it, and listening to the music in an IMAX auditorium was brilliant.
