Description

Biographical drama following the life of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek). When relatively unknown English band Smile discover young singer Freddie Mercury just at the time their frontman walks out, everyone's hopes lift as they finally find the sound they had been missing. Changing their name to Queen, the band become determined to get their music on the radio but find the task increasingly difficult. When they realise their ambitions of becoming a successful band, Freddie shocks everyone by expressing an interest in a solo career. As they are invited to perform at the charity Live Aid concert, will Freddie return to his roots and the band that made him famous or will his AIDS diagnosis stop him from performing? The cast also includes Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, Gwilym Lee as Brian May and Tom Hollander as Queen manager Jim Beach.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"[I]t runs through the greatest hits with a lot of energy....Malek certainly gives it his all as Mercury, affecting a toothy English accent and lip-syncing with sweaty abandon..."
Jesse Hassenger (23 Oct 2018, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "The film has a secret weapon: Rami Malek. As Mercury he is spectacular."
Olly Richards (23 Oct 2018, )
Hollywood Reporter
"The experiments in the studio are joyous, the concerts properly loud, and John Ottman's editing connects them fluidly..."
Sheri Linden (23 Oct 2018, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hen the singer plays 'Love of My Life' on the piano to show his love, the feeling comes through as genuine due to the raw emotion Malek and Boynton pour into their roles."
Peter Travers (30 Oct 2018, )
Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "What the film does -- and does well -- is pay tribute to the singer’s exuberant stage presence. It’s a stupendous performance by Rami Malek, the MR. ROBOT star capturing Freddie’s harlequin-suited swagger with Oscar-worthy skill."
James Mottram (26 Oct 2018, )
Variety
"Malek winds up looking, and inhabiting, the part to a remarkable degree. Watching BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, we always feel like we’re seeing Freddie Mercury standing right in front of us."
Owen Gleiberman (23 Oct 2018, )
