Storyline Heading
The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Musical - Even though this film based on the career of the legendary rock band Queen and the life of its famously flamboyant and hard-living lead singer Freddie Mercury is rated PG-13, there is still a lot of content that pushes the film right up to the edge of an R rating, from sexual situations, gay themes, language, and drug use, so families should be warned. Fans of star Rami Malek will be pleased with this big screen starring showcase; other familiar stars such as Mike Myers have only small roles.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average What saves Bohemian Rhapsody from being an historically inaccurate train wreck is the strength of the musical sequences, which are electric. Behind the scenes, the production of Bohemian Rhapsody was riddled with controversy, so it's perhaps no surprise that the result is as uneven and ultimately disappointing as it is.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor "Bohemian Rhapsody" is bad in the way a lot of biopics are bad: it's superficial, it avoids complexity, and the narrative has a connect-the-dots quality. This kind of badness, while annoying, is relatively benign. However, the attitude towards Mercury's sexual expression is the opposite of benign.

USA Today Full Review
Average Other than a solid job by Rami Malek as magnetic frontman Freddie Mercury, a few exciting musical sequences and a couple of moments of actual greatness, the film is mostly a paint-by-numbers behind-the-music journey through the ups and downs of the iconoclastic British rock band.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average And while the film's conclusion is an impressively intricate and deeply moving recreation of the band's iconic performance at Live Aid, the scenes leading up to the show are ultimately plagued by a leaden sense of each narrative and artistic choice being the safest one available.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 85 moviegoers:
OUTSTANDING REVIEWS! It's rare to see moviegoer reviews this high across all age and gender groups. Out of 85 reviews no one even rated it "good/average." That's very unusual and certainly indicates a movie that should not be missed if you have any interest in this story at all.
