If you are a fan of wild 70’s hair, heart wrenching romance, and beautiful rock music, then I would highly recommend Bohemian Rhapsody.

 

Director Bryan Singer transports the viewer into the 70’s, a time of peace, love, and rock n’ roll. This true story follows Farrokh Bulsara (AKA Freddie Mercury), the lead singer of the hit band Queen, from his days of working at an airport, to performing in front of billions of people at Live Aid. Throughout his career, Freddie faces many obstacles including his own battles with accepting his sexuality, dealing with heartbreak, and getting caught up in the scary world of drug and alcohol addiction.

 

The movie stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. Malek gives a beautiful performance learning how to dance, sing, and play piano for his role. Malek channels his inner rockstar to prance around stages in leather and bedazzled jumpsuits and tell this heart wrenching story. This role was not easy for Malek however. Many fans of Queen had their reservations about him being chosen for this role. Mercury was a huge personality, making for a very hard role to play. Malek even had to audition for his role in front of the remaining Queen members, to be sure that he was the one for this job.

 

The visuals of this movie are beautiful. The screen is filled with sequins, bright lights, and has a haze of cigarette smoke covering most scenes. The score of this movie is, as to be expected, wonderfully packed with iconic Queen tracks.

 

My only complaint is the lack of character development for the other band members. I would have loved to learn more about the lives of the royals, Roger Taylor, John Deacon, and Brian May, seeing as they contributed just as much to the legacy of the band.

 

I would recommend this movie to any fans of Queen or even those who have never heard a song. Great job to Bryan Singer and the entire cast.
