Bohemian Rhapsody Reviews
Also, many many kudos to the authors for not showing the last years of Freddie's life, that would've been unnecessary morbid.

Original Score: 3/10
Bohemian Rhapsody jumps off the screen as a testimonial and tribute to the band behind the aforementioned classic rock song and the story of their rise to fame. At the center of that journey is of course the frontman Freddie Mercury, portrayed - no reincarnated - by Malek. The resemblance is tough to make out at first, but uncanny by the end. From the onstage persona to the body language, the performance is (almost) as good as Queen's at Live Aid. This is a star-making turn of the highest caliber.
The shame is a fairly uneven script that plays more documentary than drama. Relationships are drawn with broad strokes, particularly the romantic ones of Freddie with Marie, Paul, and Jim. Add in the heaping pile of historical inaccuracies (even after allowing creative license), and you wonder if this a biopic at all and not a historical fiction.
Still Rami Malek is the heart of the film, and the entertainment value lives and dies with his performance. I will go ahead and say it: the climax and finale at the Live Aid concert at Wembley is one of the best musical scenes in movie history, and its verisimilitude to the real thing alone makes the film worth the watch.
The music sequences and Malek are my highligths.
