Storyline

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. 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. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. Written by Twentieth Century Fox

Trivia

There is some debate as to how accurate the characterization of Paul Prenter is in relation to the real life person. The film demonizes him as a freeloader and somebody who facilitated a split in the band by controlling Freddys' life and career, and encouraging his descent into a decadent lifestyle that ultimately resulted in Freddy contracting AIDS, but there are certain historical inaccuracies about him in the film (such as that he was not sacked by Freddy until after the Live Aid concert, nor did he withhold information about Live Aid from Freddie). What is true is that Roger Taylor in particular had a huge dislike for Prenter and was very vocal about it resulting in several physical (possibly violent) confrontations with Prenter during the time Prenter was in charge. Since Taylor alongside Brian May were key players in the production of this film, and Prenter himself died in 1991 of AIDS (so is unable to defend himself), it can only speculated as to whether he really was the scheming manipulator the film suggests he was, or if Taylor and May's perception of him has seeped into the script. Nevertheless, many other people associated with the band have also shared their view of Prenter as a self-serving parasite over the years, especially after he had given an interview with The Sun where he outed Freddie as gay, and revealed his relationship with Jim Hutton (Aaron McCusker).

Goofs

In a scene when Farrokh Bulsara or Freddie Mercury are still working as baggage handler at Heathrow Airport, a TWA Boeing 747 can be seen clearly with the famous two stripe logo. However the scene took place in 1970 and TWA two stripe logo was not introduced until 1975, which is five years after the scene took place. See more »

The Critics where wrong about the song in 1975,and they are wrong about the movie in 2018
28 October 2018 | by ramonvandintherSee all my reviews

This movie is a must see for any music and movie lover Queen fan or no Queen fan,anyone who sees this movie will be going through a rollercoaster of Emotions Beeing it Queens music or the story behind the music Rami Malek puts down an excellent version of Freddie Mercury, but all the actors play great in this movie In my opinion best thing to do is ignore the criticism and go see it for yourself.
