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.
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.
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.
