There are several documentaries on youtube that are better, and far more accurate, than this film. It seems the drivers of this film were intent on making uninformed audiences think Mary was Freddie's only relationship before Jim Hutton, who gets only a mention at the end of the film. They depicted his gay lifestyle as nothing but debauchery via drug-laden parties & hook-ups during the intervening years when, in fact, he had a few longer-run relationships with men.
Simply amazing, a must see!
Wow!!! This was the BEST movie I have seen in the last couple of years!!! I LOVE QUEEN
It amazes me how we glorify rock stars...music was good...A Star Is Born was much better.
Honestly this was one of the best movies that I have seen in a long time. Being a huge Queen fan it just makes me so happy being able to see more into Freddie's life. Such an amazing man. Such an amazing band. Will ALWAYS recommend this movie to everyone. Rami was also incredible. The whole cast was amazing.
Five stars! I've seen it ten times and will continue to see it on the big screen . Everyone was great in it.The casting, the story,the feel of the movie & Rami Malek was great.
Interesting movie, not great. Reminds me that most queen songs were boring except for the very few we all know. I would never have given an Academy award to that dude. Sigh...
LOVED IT!! STRONGLY RECCOMEND
Have seen this amazing movie 8 times!!!! Then I bought the DVD. Now that it's back in theaters, I WILL go see it there again! There's no comparison to seeing it in a dark theater, totally focused on the screen, no interruptions and the awesome sound!! Watching on a home TV doesn't capture that...
Rami Malek is an actor who did his job (acting) to the absolute best that he could do. Costumes were incredible, the other members of the band were talented, and the whole feel of the movie was fantastic - not to mention the killer soundtrack. OBSESSED with this movie!!
Rami did an amazing performance. Other than the odd good song, no idea why all the five stars.
This movie is amazing!! I have been a Queen fan since the 70's..I LOVE this movie!! Rami Malek is transcendent in the role of my beloved Freddie..the other actors.. esp Gwilym Lee are spot on..This movie will live on..like Queen..it's timeless!
Absolutely amazing. Rami Malek is a force to be reckoned with as an actor. He BECOMES Freddie Mercury in this movie. He deserves his Golden Globe, Actor's Guild Award, and Oscar! I could see this movie over and over and never tire of it because of the music.
Amazing!!! Even though Queen was not my jam. Rami deserves best actor! Handled the sexuality with discretion.
As a musician I find it very hard to fall in to escapism, but this a very well done Idea of Freddie. The lack of correct continuity regarding the chronology of the rise of Queen's music climb was poorly represented. Overall of fun ride, but as I have read of lot of reviews, it looks to me as all of these readers want are Superhero movies ! NO DEPTH
Five stars in every way!!
Fabulous in every sense of the word—amazing actors, production values—-and MUSIC!!
Tears. I felt a tear in my eye that my heart released. Beautiful story
I was not a Queen fan but went to see the film and I thought it was great. Rami Malek was fantastic as Freddie Mercury and is truly Oscar worthy and made we appreciate what a great band Queen were and what great music they played. J
Fun, energetic, and uplifting story.
It's a wonderful legacy of a man who made Queen. This biopic has it all, the ups and downs of Freddie Mercury and how it shaped him and the bad.
The stars speak for themselves. I was the oldest one in the theater where the movie was screened in my city. The rest were the present generation. I think I said it. Legendary*Queen* lives forever. The 4 genius and their immortal music????
Best movie I've ever seen!
Bohemian Rhapsody was not about Bryan Singer that topic shouldn't even be discussed on this site. This is a great movie about a great entertainer, a great man who changed a lot of people's lives and Rami Malek does a great job capturing that, an award winning job. It was one of the best movies that I've seen in a long time.
OMG. Rami is amazing playing the part of Freddie. It does t take you long to be totally engrossed in his character A very clever actor to be able to be so convincing as Freddie’s Amazing movie so well done. I can’t wait to see it again
Rami Malek does an amazing job!! This movie has a little bit of everything and makes you laugh, cry and you really, really do enjoy it! Highly recommended even though you're not a Queen's fan, you will become one after watching this film.
Have seen the movie twice on the big screen and today got the blue ray..cried each and every time..Rami was mesmerizing, and the rest of the cast were great....hoping for an extended edition somewhere down the road,as Rami said a lot was not in the movie ...not to be missed.
This is the best movie I have ever seen and went 4 times to see it and also singalong. Rami did a fantastic job in recreating Freddie. The other band members was fantastic likeness to original. This movie brought Freddie and Queen back into our hearts.
When I first heard that Rami was going to play Freddie, I was disappointed. I didn't think he was right. But I was sure wrong. Now, I think that there isn't anyone else who could have done it so well. I loved this movie. It left me feeling very happy.
It’s rare I see a movie 3 times at the theatre! This movie is that good!
Best movie I have seen in years, I truly believed Rami Malek was Freddie, he was outstanding. I laughed, I sang and I cried.
I’ve seen BoRhap in the theater 4 times. This is the first time in my life that I saw an audience so awed that everyone in the theater stayed through the credits, all four times. It made me laugh, cry, and sing, and fall in love with Freddie all over again. Rami made us understand Freddie better, his genius as well as his vulnerability. Best movie ever!
It is a great movie. I have seen it 13 times and I will see it much more
Outstanding Performance! Fantastic film! Oscar potential.
Everything I hoped for. Poignant ending for those of us who are Queen fans.
A great movie, great cast, an amazing performance of Rami Malek
The best !
Couldn’t have said it better! Awesome, inspiring, so memorable. Rami Malek is a force to be reckoned with, he transformed into Freddie!
I’ve seen it 5 times. That probably says it all. A wonderful romp down memory lane.
Excellent His acting is superb
Without Rami and the soundtrack, the movie would be horrible.
Absolutely the most excellent movie I've seen in years! It started out slow and I thought I would be bored, but once it picked up, I was so engrossed in every detail of it I wanted to turn right around and see it again. I left with a sick feeling in my stomach of empathy, sympathy, and the utmost understanding for not only the words to the song, but for a man that was very under appreciated. I LOVED this movie and would give it a 10 star rating if it was available. ***So*** very real, it makes you feel as if you are there, living it yourself. Excellent acting. Beautifully done.
It was ok, but too much playing around with the real facts. An example of this was the band never really broke up; they continued to tour until 3 months before Live Aid. Also, Freddie did not find out about his HIV positive status until several years after Live Aid. Therefore, the producers manipulated the facts for dramatic effect. If I want to see Queen at Live Aid, there are plenty of videos on YouTube. On the plus side, Rami Malek was very good as Freddie; would have liked more back story about Freddie's childhood (what made him who he was....).
One of the BEST movies i have seen in a long time!
This movie deserves the Oscar for Best picture and for all its other nominations!
One of the BEST movies i have seen in a long time!
I have seen Bohemian Rhapsody 4 times! SUPERB acting by Rami Malek and cast! Awesome music !! It's like being at the real concert!! Very uplifting !!
Will watch it again and again!!!
fanatasic only wish it had more factual content
