Following meteoric rise of superstar singer Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek), Bohemian Rhapsody is a chronicle of the years leading up to Queen’s legendary appearance at the Live Aid (1985) concert in 1985.
Director Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) crafts a bold and flamboyant film of operatic proportions as he tells the story of Freddie Mercury (Malek) a man who single handily changed rock n’ roll and who would define rock music for an entire generation. Bohemian Rhapsody appears to be a complete celebration of everything that is Queen and is packed out with spot on production values and some thumping tunes.
Rising Hollywood star Rami Malek (Mr. Robot, Papillon) transforms himself into legendary Freddie Mercury, and his spot on accent and all around eccentric performance is in keeping with the legendary music icon. Along with channeling his iconic stage persona Malek is also ready to take us inside his tumultuous personal life which pushed the very limits of excess.
Bohemian Rhapsody will most definitely rock you and long time Queen fans will be in for a fantastic time when it arrives in cinemas on November 1.
