"Adequate" is an accurate assessment of Bohemian Rhapsody, and you really couldn't ask for a more damning indictment of a movie about the greatest rock singer of all time.

An ahistorial jam session where everything is off cue.

Probably 'A Star is Born' will collect more awards, but as far as memorable music and great musical performances, nothing I've seen this year comes close to 'Bohemian Rhapsody.'

Without a doubt, Rami Malek's portrayal of the troubled rock star should earn him an Academy Award nomination...

Bohemian Rhapsody is one of those films that will either make you ecstatic or thoroughly annoyed. For me it's a joy. Yet I do get the annoyance.

It's a shame that such a didactic script and the attachment of Brian Singer taints what could have been a genuine and touching story.

Under performing Queen biopic.

This one is an all-around crowd pleaser made for fans that, much like Mercury himself, succeeds despite its flaws.

The film's approach may not be especially deep, but it's undeniably entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 19, 2018
A heartfelt, family drama that is no different than any other biopic you've already seen.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10
December 15, 2018
that most conventional of biopics, the kind that moves smoothly and efficiently from one greatest hits moment to the next-in this case, literally, as many of the film's narrative shifts pivot on the creation of one of Queen's hits
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

A biopicture that is all about the music of Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 11, 2018
It's a bog-standard rise-and-fall-and-rise music biopic, and whatever affection has attached to it is pretty much the work of Rami Malek.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 10, 2018
People can bop to the music, see an imitation of their beloved frontman, and have the script pump inspirational narratives into their minds. For people who have always carried a love for Mercury and his fellow misfits, the film feels empty and shallow.
December 9, 2018
The film boasts a wonderful lead performance from Rami Malek, but its clichéd narrative and sloppy, safe storytelling let down the larger-than-life figure at its center.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Rami Malek's portrayal of Mercury should garner well-deserved awards acclaim. Undoubtedly, it was one of the most enjoyable biopics I've ever watched.
Full Review | Original Score: 9.0/10

Malek's portrayal is not an impersonation, but an electric homage to a man who he knew never could, or should, be duplicated.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5
December 6, 2018
The film seems more interested in selling Queen albums to a new generation than it is depicting the complexities of the men who helped to change the face of rock music.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

Bohemian Rhapsody isn't the great movie it might have been. It's too sanitized, too safe. But thanks to an incredible lead performance from Malek ... it's still a pretty good time.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Historical accuracy is not my problem, do what you want to serve your creative vision. My problem is that there's no creative vision.
