More bubblegum pop than gritty heartbreaking drama, Bohemian Rhapsody may have a few flaws but it is, without a doubt, made for its hardcore fan base. It's engaging, foot-tapping and one all-around rocking respectful party.

Mercury's deeply flawed personality is brilliantly brought out in all its contradictions by Malek.

Bohemian Rhapsody was made to pay tribute to Freddie, not to explore his personal life. [Full review in Spanish]

There are a great number of problems with Bohemian Rhapsody, but the passion for and behind the band is front and center, and that occasionally makes it a great deal of fun.

Overall, this is nothing new. Neither good nor bad, but if you approach it from the right angle, it's a lot of fun.

Bohemian Rhapsody dives into the struggles that Freddie Mercury went through. Whether you are a Queen fan or not, it makes for a great drama (with awesome music!).

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.

Rami Malek's performance carries the film, and is filled with heart even in some of Mercury's darker moments.
May 23, 2019
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..

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

If the rhapsodic moments blow in and out of the narrative, they don't prevent Bohemian Rhapsody from being entertaining.
March 30, 2019
Bohemian Rhapsody finds a nice middle ground between being an unabashed and safe depiction of Queen. It could have dabbled more into the meaty contents of the band and Mercury's life, but there's enough here to sing about.

I love this movie. This is the kind of film you go with friends who love Queen's music as much as you do.

If you want authentic vocal pyrotechnics with a gut-punch story, go see the Gaga-fied A Star Is Born. But if you want breathtaking mimicry, uncluttered by historical honesty, then this movie's for you.
