being honest I thought the movie would not satisfy me but fortunately I enjoyed it very much I loved the scenes they played in front of all those people mainly in the end when they played in Live Aid and how they did the film focusing on freddie mercury but even thus speaking of every person around him.

My wife and I, neither big fans of QUEEN, got deep into the movie. How songs originated, how songs were sluffed [like Meatloaf's "Paradise in the Dashboard Lights" publishers rejected "Bohemian Rhapsody" as too long for DJs to play], how bands split [Like the Temptations] and reconcile like families, how creativity finds its way home even when forged in fame, and how today's music can be classical and modern without tripping over itself. Some raunch not appealing to my wife and some extended meaningless parties that could have been opted down, but still an outstanding film that drove the audience to sing and stomp along. Deserves to be seen on the big screen. Yea, 5*.

A compelling look into the life of one of musics greatest legends. Even though a couple of scenes drag on a bit longer than maybe they should and the film appears to be being held back in some areas by the company's higher ups you don't notice whilst watching as you become intrigued and infatuated by Rami Malek and his oscar-worthy portrayal of Freddy Mercury. A must watch for any fan of Queen or Rami Malek.

Great movie that covered from prior to the group's creation to Freddie mercury's death. The music and acting were stupendous, and there were no negatives within this film.

"Bohemian Rhapsody(2018)",was a GOOD MOVIE, and GOOD to pay and GO SEE it at a THEATER! I LIKED IT, as many others agreed with me who saw it when I went to see it, 1:00pm(CT) Sunday 12/16/2018.

It may not be extremely accurate and some of the changes seemed actually quite arbitrary, still this is a very enjoyable movie, which should make happy both old fans (unless they don't decide to be difficult on purpose) and new generations. It's a movie that tells the story of a band and how it became a myth. it doesn't want to be a documentary in the first place so it points more on the emotional reactions of the audience than anything else. Which is fine by me, because as a fan I already know plenty of stuff about Freddie's life and the others' too. But just because I'm such an hardcore fan I'm really proud to see so many young people interested in Queen music thanx to the movie. So what if it's not precise in every single detail?
Also, many many kudos to the authors for not showing the last years of Freddie's life, that would've been unnecessary morbid.

I, personally, give this movie five stars. It was fantastic, but it was more just a Freddie Mercury documentary than a Queen movie. To be honest, Rami Malek is a dime so he was fun to watch. I love this movie, 10/10 would recommend.

I find it odd. I was uncomfortable at times but only because the acting was on point. In the last half hour of the movie I was on the brink of crying every minute XD

Malik's performance was excellent. The movie itself was meh.

So liitle conflict in this movie makes it really boring to watch.

Scratchy ending and felt a bit forced to me. However, Rami Malek makes the audiance ignore the film and focus on the beautifly crafted character he has created. This is an excellent example of the newer music/artist movies that seem to be coming out lately.

A must-see film with boxxy software app. I am not a queen fan...never been.
Got to say that the acting, story and music gave me the chills. By the end I was smiling and almost crying.

Anchored by a powerhouse performance from Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody is able to get more than a bit of mileage out of a condensed history of Freddie Mercury and Queen. While it's explorations of Mercury's psyche never quite trump the need to speed from the more dramatic moments to the next Queen song, Bohemian Rhapsody delivers enough substance to justify the price of admission, but don't expect it to do much more.
December 17, 2018
It really is a movie made just so 20th Century Fox can use the music scot-free.
Original Score: 3/10

With a terrific performance by Rami Malek and electrifying stage performances, Bohemian Rhapsody pays respect (despite some historical inaccuracies) to a rock legend and one of the greatest bands of all-time.

The world deserves more Rami Malek and more Queen, so why not give them both?

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 movie glamorizes mercury, the real mercury was harsher than portrayed

Beautiful movie. First movie I've paid to see twice.

I couldent wait for this movie being very big queen. I found it satisfying and amazing performances Rami Malek. The Live Aid was created wonderfully and such a pleasure sing along to. My only negatives for the movie is its historical inaccuracies. I did work well in the movie but they got a lot of facts wrong. But overall a fun film what cheered up after i just got out of Hosptial.
The music sequences and Malek are my highligths.
