Despite all the problems and rumoured on-set arguments, the good news is that Bohemian Rhapsody still provides comedy, tragedy and a killer soundtrack.

There's a lot to like, namely Rami Malek, who is essentially Freddie Mercury reincarnated...but there was a lot of stuff in the film that really bugged me as a fan...it's not an awful movie, but far too safe for my taste.

Bohemian Rhapsody -- a biography, a musical, a history -- succeeds on all fronts whether Freddie Mercury is an unfamiliar face or the object of long fandom.
November 19, 2018
All these disturbances decidedly took a toll on the finished product. All-in-all, Rami Malek's superlative performance keeps you riveted throughout...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 19, 2018
Little more than a collection of sequences built around the performance of Queen songs, occasionally with some mediocre attempts to contextualise those songs.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
November 19, 2018
Despite some fairly wild deviations from the true stories, Bohemian Rhapsody is still an intensely satisfying movie led by a fearless performance from Rami Malek.

Mercury was making love to the audience with every bone in his body. Malek never seems like he's in his body at all.

No thanks to disgraced director Bryan Singer, whose terrible fingerprints are all over the project's biggest defects, star Rami Malek makes for an impeccable Freddie Mercury.

It's in the title. There's a reason Bohemian Rhapsody is not called "Queen" or "Mercury" or "I want to break free". It is neither harmoniously collective nor ragingly individualistic. It is, in every sense, rhapsodic.

In the end, the movie belongs to Freddie Mercury, the Bohemian rhapsodiser of the title, who conquers with his voice from beyond the grave. The movie comes alive every time Mercury's sonorous voice booms out of the screen.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a movie that consciously tries to position a gay man at its center while strategically disengaging with the "gay" part as much as it can...
November 15, 2018
[It's] too interested in providing a good time to deliver a great movie. And by making Mercury's identity issues a band detail instead of [personal], it might be a bad one.

A fitting tribute to Freddie Mercury and Queen, Bohamian Rhapsody is a stirring spectacle.

It's like a best selling record; very enjoyable and entertaining, but nothing extraordinary. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
November 15, 2018
...a surface-level extended music video that has zero interest in honestly examining its characters' inner lives, distorts timelines for cheap dramatic shortcuts, and exists to prop up a new soundtrack featuring unearthed live material.

Bohemian Rhapsody is biopic agony.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
November 14, 2018
Yes, the narrative moves too fast, but the film is worth seeing for exactly two reasons: Rami Malek's excellent work as Freddie Mercury... and the musical sequences (especially that of Live Aid). [Full review in Spanish]

November 14, 2018
The movie falls into some of the pitfalls of telescoping events to fit the format. But it heroically depicts the Queen era (late '70s-early '80s), and the band's phenomenal creative energy and output.

November 13, 2018
The biopic is never as emotional as it should be, as lively as it should be, or as heartbreaking as it should be.
November 13, 2018
A toothless, compromised mess, one that doesn't seem to have more than a passing understanding of its real-life protagonist.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
