Overall I found this movie spellbinding. Rami Malek was truly astonishing. Maybe the movie isn't 100% accurate, but the movie was always compelling, fascinating and moving. All of the music scenes are fantastic. I liked how the music was so front and centre in the film and that the film showed a lot of the music process. The movie truly capitalizes on what a rare, outstanding special artist Freddie Mercury was. Watching the movie and listening to all the magnificent music made it a very emotional experience. Overall I thought the movie did a great job of capturing the unique magic of Freddie Mercury.

Some parts were a little choppy, but overall a good movie. Got my attention throughout.

This was a excellent movie, we really liked it. Shame he died so young, but lot of guys died of aids during that period of time. Music and acting was very good.

Perhaps my former love for the band Queen makes me slightly biased, but I firmly believe that Bohemian Rhapsody was extremely deserving of the 4 Oscars that it received. At first glance, the movie doesn't seem like more than a quirky biopic centered around Freddie Mercury but these accusations aren't further from the truth. Bohemian Rhapsody sets quite the stage for Queen and showcased their musical career with style and familiarity. Although the acting and directing were phenomenal, I must take grievance with how the story was told, as it did get several important facts and dates incorrect and I felt as though it could've focused more on the end of Freddie Mercury's life. Despite this, everything else was flawless in its execution- even creating many (MANY) quotable lines and running jokes. Not to mention the cast looking almost identical to Freddie, Brian, John, and Roger. Many would argue that the best part of Bohemian Rhapsody is the spotlight Queen received at Live Aid, which is quite a fair argument: Rami Malek's recreation of how Freddie Mercury moved on that stage is identical, flawless even. All-in-all, Bohemian Rhapsody is sure to spark a hidden love for the band Queen in anyone who watches it and is worthy of recognition despite minor mistakes. 4/5. @showmethemonet! of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

This movie has everything: amazing music, great acting, a compelling story, colorful costumes and interesting characters. It's just FUN! It is a movie and should be processed as a work of fiction with some details that may be true. It is freely adapted from the original story. It is NOT a true biopic, but who cares? The music and the acting are true erfection. See it if you dare ... it is entertaining to say the least.

I didnt like this as much as I expected. I am old and loved their music at the time, thought Freddie beautiful and now I think I would rather just go to utube and see them occaisionally

Very sanitized version of the decadence of the era in a film that was good, but not great. More of a homage to Freddie Mercury than anything else.

One of the best music biopics I have ever seen! Rami Malek was awesome as Freddie Mercury and deserved his Best Actor win back in March!

Who cares about director Bryan Singer's antics while this was filming? Just watch this film for Rami Malek alone.

Reporter 2: Freddie, uh, your teeth! Why don't you get your teeth fixed?
Freddie Mercury: I live in Britain. I don't want to stand out.
Freddie Mercury: I have four extra incisors.

*** expanded quote on his incisors:
Our lead singer just quit.
-Well, then you'll need someone new.
Any ideas?
-What about me?
Uh, not with those teeth, mate.
- Freddie sang: I know what I'm doin' ... I got a feeling ...
The others harmonizing: Doin' all right
-I was born with four additional incisors. More space in my mouth means more range.
