Though Rami Malek (Mr Robot) obviously poured his heart into the role, he could never have won, given the source material he had to work with.

Bohemian Rhapsody is an expensive cosplay. It is plotted with the passion of a Wikipedia summary article. It hums along inoffensively for 2 hours.

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

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...

Bohemian Rhapsody might have some spectacular moments but it never forms a cohesive whole or have anything of merit to say about its subject.

He's just a poor boy from a poor family. Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

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 20, 2019
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 18, 2019
Bohemian Rhapsody is a soulless, predictable, conventional and emotionally extortive musical biopic, although it's all hidden behind the songs and musical sequences.

Singer has been repeatedly accused of sexual assault against underage boys, leading to a thick cloud of unease that hangs over Bohemian Rhapsody.

It features a fantastic lead performance from Rami Malek as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, but sadly the rest of the film doesn't live up to its greater elements, playing more as a greatest hits medley that has little to say about Queen or its members.

A closer look reveals dissonance in this orchestration.
February 7, 2019
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.

Strong acting from Rami Malek and others can't hide the film's substantial plot flaws.
