A black green cloud of bad stuff snorted up its own fat bottom. Freddie deserved better.
March 22, 2021
The film squandered its opportunity to tell a story worthy of Freddie Mercury. He was magnificent and larger-than-life, and all we got is a plateful of mediocre and average.

Bohemian Rhapsody tells the dramatised history of the influential British rock band, Queen, with the limelight focused firmly on the late frontman, Freddie Mercury.
December 5, 2020
So forceful and enthusiastic that it's hard not to get caught up in the momentum and the impact of one of the most enduring groups in rock history.
November 10, 2020
The high wire work of Malek and the thrilling concerts sequences will make you fall in love with Queen all over again. While far from perfect, Bohemian Rhapsody was a blast.
October 2, 2020
Thanks to the film's aesthetically pleasing musical sequences and Rami Malek's commanding leading performance, it still serves as an adequate reminder of both the band's musical genius and Freddie's one of a kind stage presence.
September 3, 2020
The film never really strikes an original note, choosing instead to tap into all the biopic high notes.

Rami Malek is the movie and the only reason why it stands out, not much beyond his acting. [Full review in Spanish]
August 29, 2020
The film clearly has its flaws, rolling out more like a "Greatest Hits" compilation than a creative concept album, but the experience is so nostalgically infectious as to be irresistible. Forget the mixed reviews; they're just radio gaga.
July 25, 2020
More bubblegum pop than gritty heartbreaking drama, Bohemian Rhapsody may have a few flaws but it is, without a doubt, made for its hardcore fan base. It's engaging, foot-tapping and one all-around rocking respectful party.
July 25, 2020
The film is either scared of alienating its audience or can't bring itself to paint Mercury in a light that isn't totally mainstream, but either way, it's shallow.
July 21, 2020
Mercury's deeply flawed personality is brilliantly brought out in all its contradictions by Malek.
July 5, 2020
Bohemian Rhapsody was made to pay tribute to Freddie, not to explore his personal life. [Full review in Spanish]
July 1, 2020
There are a great number of problems with Bohemian Rhapsody, but the passion for and behind the band is front and center, and that occasionally makes it a great deal of fun.
June 27, 2020
It is brutally long, rushing to tell the hectic life of Freddie Mercury with very awkward creative decisions and conventional mechanics that make the journey hasty, pointless and with little time for cohesion. [Full review in Spanish]
June 1, 2020
As a biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody falls short, failing to adequately examine Mercury's life and the people in it. Malek, who put so much effort into bringing Mercury to life, and who gives such a brilliant performance, deserves better, as does the audience.
March 18, 2020
Overall, this is nothing new. Neither good nor bad, but if you approach it from the right angle, it's a lot of fun.
February 29, 2020
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.
February 5, 2020
Bohemian Rhapsody dives into the struggles that Freddie Mercury went through. Whether you are a Queen fan or not, it makes for a great drama (with awesome music!).
January 21, 2020
This is record label-approved hagiography, and those doing the approving seem to see Mercury's sexual orientation as a character flaw he must overcome.
