Bohemian Rhapsody, directed by award-winning Bryan Singer, is a biography and celebration of the 70s British rock band, Queen.

The movie stars Rami Malek, who plays the eccentric Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of the band. Alongside Malek is Ben Hardy playing Roger Taylor, the bands drummer; Gwilym Lee playing one of the bands guitarists, Brian May; and Joseph Mazzello who plays the other guitarist, John Deacon.

The movie begins with Mercury meeting the band, and asking if he can join it. Through little persuasion, the boys are convinced, and from there on, their careers begin to flourish. The rest of the movie follows their comical and emotional journey to becoming one of the biggest bands in the world.

The performance is tear-jerking and bone chilling. It perfectly portrays how influential and breathtaking Queen was. There was not a moment during this film where all eyes were not glued to the screen.”

Most of the memorable scenes show how the band wrote some of their most famous songs, like “We Will Rock You”, “Another One Bites The Dust”, and of course “Bohemian Rhapsody”. Every scene tells a different story, and shows how the band grew over time.

The film is wrapped up by the recreation of Queen’s astonishing performance at Live Aid, an event that raises money to abolish Ethiopian famine. The performance is tear-jerking and bone chilling. It perfectly portrays how influential and breathtaking Queen was. There was not a moment during this film where all eyes were not glued to the screen.

It is safe to say that Malek’s performance in this movie is award winning. He truly captures Mercury, whether it be through his sassy attitude, or through his movements on stage. At times it feels as if you are not even watching the movie, but are somehow transported back in time and are watching Mercury himself.

Leaving the theater, you are left with a new sense of appreciation for Queen, knowing all the hardships and bumps on the road the band went through to rise to the top. There is no denying that Mercury, Taylor, May, and Deacon are all legends, and will live on forever in the name of Rock-N-Roll.
