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

The Pepsi logo being emblazoned all over the place in the Live Aid scenes is not deliberate product placement by the film-makers but actually historically correct (hence the use of the old colour scheme and logo). In 1985 Pepsi agreed to be the major sponsor of the concert to help cover the costs of building the stage, paying for crowd control and security, supplying the crowds, bands and backstage crew with facilities & refreshments and covering many other sundry costs in exchange for their name and logo being prominently displayed. The non-commercial BBC who were providing the worldwide television feed and radio coverage agreed to turn a blind eye to the product placement (they used to have a strict policy of avoiding showing any commercial sponsorship) due to the unique historic and humanitarian nature of the concert. Wembley Stadium was actually made available free of charge to Live Aid for the duration of the concert by the owners. The concert promoters and all the bands worked for free. See more »
Freddie Mercury has lovely deep brown eyes. Rami Malek has blue/green eyes and they make no effort to correct them during the film including close ups of his face. See more »
The Critics where wrong about the song in 1975,and they are wrong about the movie in 2018
This movie is a must see for any music and movie lover
Queen fan or no Queen fan,anyone who sees this movie will be going through a rollercoaster of Emotions
Beeing it Queens music or the story behind the music
Rami Malek puts down an excellent version of Freddie Mercury, but all the actors play great in this movie
In my opinion best thing to do is ignore the criticism and go see it for yourself.
