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

Brian May famously does not use a plectrum whilst playing guitar, instead preferring to use a sixpence (a pre decimalisation, i.e. 1971, coin). See more »

Goofs

After Bohemian Rhapsody is recorded, the film shows one of the first live performances of the show with text listed as Edinburgh 1976. There are two dominant errors within this scene. The first error is the overall setting of the performance since the band are depicted in the era when New Of The World from '1977' was released which is confirmed by the outfits matching that specific era. The second error is Edinburgh 1976 was a real concert during the Summer Gigs Tour from 1976 a few months after the A Night At The Opera tour had finished in Australia and a full year before the News Of The World ever occurred.

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.
