Bohemian Rhapsody

Critics Consensus

Bohemian Rhapsody hits a handful of high notes, but as an in-depth look at a beloved band, it offers more of a medley than a true greatest hits collection.

Movie Info

Freddie Mercury -- the lead singer of Queen -- defies stereotypes and convention to become one of history's most beloved entertainers. The band's revolutionary sound and popular songs lead to Queen's meteoric rise in the 1970s. After leaving the group to pursue a solo career, Mercury reunites with Queen for the benefit concert Live Aid -- resulting in one of the greatest performances in rock 'n' roll history.

Critic Reviews for Bohemian Rhapsody

All Critics (405) | Top Critics (74) | Fresh (245) | Rotten (160)

  • The film ends on a musical high, accurately capturing the essence of the band's energy but, despite Malek's best efforts, fails to capture the elusiveness of Freddie Mercury.

  • ...the karaoke idea does not work in a tragic biopic, even if it sets out to celebrate the life and music of the rock star Freddie Mercury.

  • If you're looking to find our more about Freddie Mercury, his experiences, and his life, you might come away like you're missing a little something.

    March 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Bryan Singer's trite, tidy but powerfully soundtracked biopic of Freddie Mercury's fantastic journey from immigrant baggage handler to rock god renders the outsize ride of his life with surprising mundanity.

    February 26, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The only redeeming value of Bohemian Rhapsody is it's so bad, there's plenty of room left for a much better biopic about the one and only Freddie Mercury.

    February 20, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Rami Malek is a revelation, but his performance feels wasted in Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie that can't decide if it wants to honor Queen frontman Freddie Mercury or punish him.

    I wasn't a fan of Bohemian Rhapsody before watching this film and I'm not one after having watched it. But regarding the movie, it's very plain and dull. Nothing worth knowing or watching. Straight Outta Crompton was way better than this.

    Entertaining biopic about one of the most popular bands of the 20th century. Considering nothing awfully exciting happened in their history, the film is forced to allow itself some inaccuracies for drama's sake. Most are forgivable, pretending that Live Aid was a flop until Queen started to perform is pretty stupid, though. As far as the cast goes, Malek deserves the praise he has been getting. The rest of the band has less to do but is perfectly cast as well. I also can't say I see the film trying to hide Mercury's homosexuality. The awards praise (Malek excluded) is maybe a bit much, but the film itself is fine.

    The music of Queen is such a collection of hits that this alone makes for a good time, but the movie is visually appealing as well. Rami Malek is fantastic along with the rest of the crew, good direction by Bryan Singer. This movie takes you on a wild ride right by the bands side, I loved the insight into thier journey as a band.

    I am sensitive to criticisms from the gay community about how Freddy Mercury's homosexuality is depicted in Bohemian Rhapsody. The film is far from perfect, but I can't deny that I enjoyed Hollywood's version of Queen's successes and struggles.
