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.

As for Freddie Mercury, is this his real life? Is this just fantasy - not sure that really matters either. When Malek's strutting like a peacock, this movie is a decently amusing escape from reality.

Malek does an impressive job of re-creating Mercury's moves onstage, but the core of the performance is Malek's intensely thoughtful, insight-rich channelling of Mercury's hurt, his alienation and isolation even at the height of his fame.

Ideally, a film like this would attempt to add to, or to contextualize, a legacy. Instead, "Bohemian Rhapsody" tries to sanctify it, pack it in bubble wrap to protect it from causing, or being caught in, any friction.

Freddie Mercury deserves better.

Bohemian Rhapsody is well-crafted and exhilarating at times. It doesn't do much to break the mold of a typical biopic.

...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.

Queen's subsequent rise to global fame is told through vignettes that are jolting and badly edited together, often arriving without context or connection

Freddie Mercury was a brilliant musician who left an everlasting mark on the world. Bohemian Rhapsody offers a small insight into Freddie's world and that of the band Queen.

It may be a watered down tale of one of the most 'mercurial' lives lived on earth, but it is also a beautiful tribute to the life lived only for performance.

In its two hours of footage he does not get a single moment of authentic, pure and full rock and roll. [Full Review in Spanish]

All biopics are dumb and bad, but musical biopics are a very special kind of awful. At best, they are exercises in celebrity karaoke. At worst, they are lip sync battles. Actually, at worst the director of the musical biopic is fired during filming...

Rami Malek's performance carries the film, and is filled with heart even in some of Mercury's darker moments.

It's worth watching for Rami Malek's performance; entertainingly informative.

To its benefit, and its detriment, Bohemian Rhapsody is emphatically rooted in Freddie not as a man but Freddie as myth. So the film is a lesson in mythology..

Bohemian Rhapsody might have some spectacular moments but it never forms a cohesive whole or have anything of merit to say about its subject.
May 6, 2019
It ends on a high note in every sense of the word, and by the end, you really don't want it to stop now.

I loved all the songs...I thought this was a fun movie to see with the whole family, though they could have done more with an R-rated dude...

A simplistic, uninspiring reflection on Freddie Mercury's life with Queen's tremendous soundtrack doing most of the heavy lifting.
