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 entire production budget for this film was earned back just from the UK theatrical release box-office takings alone. When the worldwide box office takings and other media sales are taken into account this means that the film has ultimately been hugely profitable for both the producers and 20th Century Fox (who are the distributors).

I've been hideous. I know that, and... I deserve your fury. I've been conceited... selfish. Well, an asshole, basically.
Look, I'm happy to strip off my shirt and flagellate myself before you. Or rather, I could ask you a simple question.
I'm good with the flagellation.
What's it gonna take for all of you to forgive me?
Is that what you want, Freddie? I forgive you. Is that it? Can we go now?

Makes you realise what a loss Freddie was
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.
