Wow. Remi Malek really embodied Freddy Mercury and it was mesmerizing. Great film.

This was a excellent movie, we really liked it. Shame he died so young, but lot of guys died of aids during that period of time. Music and acting was very good.

Perhaps my former love for the band Queen makes me slightly biased, but I firmly believe that Bohemian Rhapsody was extremely deserving of the 4 Oscars that it received. At first glance, the movie doesn't seem like more than a quirky biopic centered around Freddie Mercury but these accusations aren't further from the truth. Bohemian Rhapsody sets quite the stage for Queen and showcased their musical career with style and familiarity. Although the acting and directing were phenomenal, I must take grievance with how the story was told, as it did get several important facts and dates incorrect and I felt as though it could've focused more on the end of Freddie Mercury's life. Despite this, everything else was flawless in its execution- even creating many (MANY) quotable lines and running jokes. Not to mention the cast looking almost identical to Freddie, Brian, John, and Roger. Many would argue that the best part of Bohemian Rhapsody is the spotlight Queen received at Live Aid, which is quite a fair argument: Rami Malek's recreation of how Freddie Mercury moved on that stage is identical, flawless even. All-in-all, Bohemian Rhapsody is sure to spark a hidden love for the band Queen in anyone who watches it and is worthy of recognition despite minor mistakes. 4/5. @showmethemonet! of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

This movie has everything: amazing music, great acting, a compelling story, colorful costumes and interesting characters. It's just FUN! It is a movie and should be processed as a work of fiction with some details that may be true. It is freely adapted from the original story. It is NOT a true biopic, but who cares? The music and the acting are true erfection. See it if you dare ... it is entertaining to say the least.

I didnt like this as much as I expected. I am old and loved their music at the time, thought Freddie beautiful and now I think I would rather just go to utube and see them occaisionally

Very sanitized version of the decadence of the era in a film that was good, but not great. More of a homage to Freddie Mercury than anything else.

One of the best music biopics I have ever seen! Rami Malek was awesome as Freddie Mercury and deserved his Best Actor win back in March!

Who cares about director Bryan Singer's antics while this was filming? Just watch this film for Rami Malek alone.

Good film but I agree with one of the other comments that this was a carefully crafted version of events. I heard Sasha Baron Cohen, who was originally slated to star as Freddie Mercury, in an interview explain that he left the project because he wanted to show aspects of Freddie's personality and behaviour that the band preferred to keep hidden. If anything, this film reminds me of how business savvy Queen is. Through Wayne's World in the early 90's and now with this film, they continue to find ways to introduce their music to younger generations and garner attention for their band. They are awesome at legacy building.
On a less cynical note, Queen is indeed an incredible band. I've often said that you don't have to like every Queen song but every song is a masterpiece. They were excellent musicians and wrote interesting and different music. This film showcases some of that talent and uniqueness that the band has. Overall, good film.

Any ideas?

Uh, not with those teeth, mate.
