Movie Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

Is this the real life? Or is this fantasy?

Bohemian Rhapsody is Rami Malek and anyone who says otherwise is wrong. Haha. Seriously. He sold the entire movie with a layered, raw, and vulnerable performance and it didn't feel like a cheap imitation, which with a less talented actor's hand would be quite laughable. His stellar portrayal simply humanized the legend, which was impressive. Also, the music was, as expected, quite terrific and epic in every sense of the word.

Other elements of the film could've been tighter though. The storytelling was a bit uneven, the first half almost seemed too generic and conventional, and some of the creative choices from the camera work to visual effects during the Live Aid concert was slightly problematic - no, it didn't pull me out of the outstanding performance of Rami Malek and the booming and anthemic songs of Queen, but still.

Bohemian Rhapsody is Rami Malek. It's not without flaws and historical inaccuracies, which I honestly didn't mind, but it's incredibly entertaining with impeccable performances and some powerful emotional punch.

Strange how this film was viewed exactly the same as the song, Bohemian Rhapsody. Critics hated it, while fans adored it. I'm the latter, so there's that..
