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

Prior to their famous performance at Live Aid (1985) in July 1985, Queen's fortunes had taken a huge dip in the U.S. for several years prior. Despite still being hugely popular and selling loads of records and regularly charting in their native UK and Western Europe & Australia, by 1985 they were seen as a spent force in the States with so-so album sales. The band themselves may not have helped matters having appeared in drag for Queen: I Want to Break Free (1984), a video which many conservative broadcasting networks in the United States found offensive, including MTV, who refused to show it. The song therefore only reached number 46 in the US charts but reached the top ten in most European countries (it reached number 3 in the UK where the BBC had no problem showing the full video to a young audience on it's flagship 'Top of the Pops' TV show which was broadcast on Thursday early evenings). 'Controversies' such as these and Freddie's increasingly flamboyant displays of 'campness' seriously hurt their US image so it cannot be underestimated just how important their Live Aid performance was in winning back a new generation of fans and cementing their position as one of the greatest rock bands.

Goofs

Freddie is shown phoning Mary in the 1970s using a "touch tone" DTMF phone (known as MF4 in the UK). DTMF capable exchanges were not installed in the UK until the late 1980s, certainly after "Live Aid" happened. Freddie would have had to enter the number on a rotary dial, or on a Loop Disconnect capable push button phone, such as a "Trimphone". See more »

Long live Queen
23 October 2018 | by senorkairunSee all my reviews

I just saw the world premiere and oh boy let me tell you about it:

This movie might not be a masterpiece but my heart is filled with such happiness and joy after watching it that I think it's going to burst (sorry for the cheesiness), Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon are so exquisitely portrayed I sometimes forgot it wasn't them, the performances were so on point and so powerful you could feel the energy burst through the screen. ¿Have you seen the famous car scene in Wayne's world? well, now imagine a full room doing the same, people couldn't help but sing along (lets be honest, it's impossible not too).

I laughed, cried, sang and wished I could have seen Queen live, this band will live forever.
