It's all about Rami Malek's take on a performing prodigy, with his staring eyes, Bugs Bunny teeth, and grand flourishes.
Just the last 30 minutes is worth the movie.
Compare this to the less stellar "Rocketman".

4/5

I believe Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) deserves a respectable 4/5. Bohemian Rhapsody, directed by Bryan Singer is a movie that tells the story of the beloved band; Queen, and their lead singer Freddie Mercury. This movie showcases Queen's struggles on their climb to fame, along with visual recreations of their Rock in Rio,and Live Aid. The reason I gave this a 4/5 instead of a 5/5 is because despite being a biopic; Bohemian Rhapsody takes many liberties with the bands history, namely with the song We Will Rock You (1977), Bohemian Rhapsody claims this song was written in the early 1980s, the movie also claims that Rock in Rio was performed in the mid 1970s when it was actually performed in january of 1985 which is why I believe this movie is better as a revised version of their true story, rather than a biopic.This movie stars Ramie Malek as Mercury, Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, and Joseph Mazzelo as John Deacon.I believe the acting quality in this movie is on par with Jonathan Demme's The Silence of the Lambs (1991) and Brian Depalma’s Scarface (1983), The music in this movie is perfectly cobbled together using remastered audio clips of Mercury, and newer recordings of Marc Martel,a christian singer who can perfectly imitate Mercury’s singing voice.I would recommend this movie to young adults (12-17), and anyone in their mid-late 30’s I believe would also enjoy this.

Shows how important it is to have a real friend. The acting was perfect and casting too!
How electrifying was the final stadium show, even though it was obviously photoshopped et al but so well done you felt you were there. What a way for Freddie to go out.

Let me get this straight: you make a movie about Queen and put in nothing about the making of the "Flash Gordon" soundtrack or "Who Wants to Live Forever," the theme song from "Highlander"? What the friggin' poop makers of this movie about Queen.

This is an intense Life story of the vocalist of one of the greatest British rock and roll bands, Queen. Farrokh Bulsara (Freddie Mercury) was known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Extravagant, eccentric singer, songwriter and record producer. This band made a change in the structure of the music of that era, opera-like composition. Unbelievable creations!.

The fact that the surviving members of Queen were producers on this movie is insulting to Queen fans. It is a beyond sugar coated movie loaded with enough inaccuracies about the band that they should make a movie about how this thing got made. I was looking forward to this movie and can't tell enough people who haven't seen it to avoid it.

The movie is boring. But I like Freddie Mercury. His vocal is fantastic and he is very generous. I like his songs.

Reporter 2: Freddie, uh, your teeth! Why don't you get your teeth fixed?
Freddie Mercury: I live in Britain. I don't want to stand out.
===
Freddie Mercury: I have four extra incisors.

*** expanded quote on his incisors:
Our lead singer just quit.
-Well, then you'll need someone new.
Any ideas?
-What about me?
Uh, not with those teeth, mate.
- Freddie sang: I know what I'm doin' ... I got a feeling ...
The others harmonizing: Doin' all right
-I was born with four additional incisors. More space in my mouth means more range.
