Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer

The Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody starts off like every other generic picture in the genre but quickly escalates to a crescendo of musically emotional enjoyment.

Like all other biopics, this one flashes back to the early days of Queen just as they are about to perform at Wembley Stadium for the mega-concert Live Aid. From there we meet Farrokh Bulsara the future Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek) who attends a college pub concert featuring the band Smile that included Brian May (Gwilym Lee) and Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy). That night, Smile loses their front man and immediately hires Mercury to be their front man. The band rounds out John Deacon (Joseph Mazzello) and they are off and running.

The first 40 minutes show how the band’s sound was shaped, when Freddie met Mary Austin (Lucy Boynton), the separation from his cultural identity that lead to his superstar status. Really the movie doesn’t pick up until they record A Night at the Opera that features features a certain Wayne’s World alum playing Ray Foster, the music executive who tells Queen no one will ever bang their head to the song…and in 1975 he was right, but lived to regret the decision to let Queen go in later years.

One this scene hits and Freddie begins to realize his sexual identity is when the movie finally take off like a rocket. Malek and Lee are transformed into Mercury and May, making you feel as if you are there watching everything unfold with the band. The biopic turns into a ride along experience where you become the fly on the wall in every meeting, every club and every situation that these legends of rock’n’roll have experienced.

Unfortunately, a certain director, who has faced multiple accusations of sexual assault and pedophilia’s name is still attached to the film, but whomever finished the picture for him allowed us to go on the ride of life as once Freddie realizes his fate and Live Aid takes place, Queen is revitalized, revived and confirmed to be one of the greatest and dare I say, GREATEST rock’n’roll band of all time.

Rami Malek deserves every accolade he receives for playing Freddie Mercury and more, from wearing the fake teeth, to learning not only how to walk like the Indian legend but to embody his mannerisms and be able to accurately mimic his stage presence is something we never thought possible, but Malek did the impossible and for that if he does not win the Oscar for best actor, I will go on a Social Justice Warrior tirade using every -ism and -phobia phrase I can think of, hell I will make up a few of my own for good measure!

In all seriousness though, Malek deserves every award he will be up for regarding this performance. When a movie has every critic in the audience singing along to every single song, stomping their feet and clapping their hands to the anthem We Will Rock You, along with a 90 percent retention rate in the theater until the house lights came on without a Marvel post credit scene, you know you’ve hit it out of the park!

Bohemian Rhapsody opens nationwide on Friday, November 2, 2018!

  • Overall Score


Bohemian Rhapsody starts off slow but boils over with emotions, dragging the audience along for the ultimate sing-a-long movie that leaves the audience satisfied. Give Rami Malek the Oscar now.
