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

Did You Know?

Trivia

The video for the 1984 hit single 'I want to break free' which caused so much controversy in the US and was banned by many television broadcasters is briefly addressed in this film. The track is from their eleventh studio album 'The Works' and was a size-able hit throughout most of Europe and the rest of the world. The video itself is an affectionate, humorous and slightly camp parody of the long running British television soap opera 'Coronation Street' (1960 - present) with the band members exaggeratedly dressed as female characters from that show. However whilst most British, Australian, New Zealand and even Canadian viewers (territories where the show had been broadcast for years) would have recognized the tongue in cheek parody, many conservative American networks were either unaware of the joke or concerned that US viewers would be outraged and offended so promptly refused to show it thus the song was never really a size-able hit on it's US release.

Those movies who make the critics look like a bunch a monkeys
9 November 2018 | by mehditalSee all my reviews

I love it when it happens again and again, critics are too lost in their purist world to see something well done. Just watch the movie, it is worth your time!
