BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet.
The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

  • So the bit where Freddy's lover hides it from him they'd been invited to play at Live Aid and the show almost didn't happen because Freddy didn't know about it- was that just made up?

  • If I want to know more about Freddie and Queen, I can either watch one of the many music videos they did. There are also some fantastic documentaries (right here on CS-tv!), and great interviews with the REAL Freddie. Why would I want to watch a movie that gets so many things WRONG??

  • How different is the movie from real life?? Well when you have an Arab playing a Persian you know how precise hollywood is. If you juxtapose Freddie Mercury and Rami Mallik you will know how bad you have done everything.

  • that movie was just gay

  • No one wants to see mark Wahlberg.

  • I'm a huge Queen fan and spotted some of the differences. They didn't bother me at all. It was a great movie.

  • The movie didn't really bring it out... but Freddie Mercury was gay.

  • Meh, it's a movie. You want facts, watch a documentary

  • Just saw it a few hours ago, what a masterpiece.

  • No words can describe my feelings. I cried, especially when Live Aid in the movie was happening 😰 Really really great ❤️

  • Yes, I noticed they did not attempt to change the color of Rami Malek’s eyes. It was so noticeable at the end of the Live Aid concert scene. Was this done purposefully??? Regardless, Malek’s portrayal of Freddie Mercury was extraordinary. A well done movie.

  • Dramas are not documentaries.

  • So it's like a happier Sid and Nancy , good flick but light on facts,stylized as you they say, I noticed the We Will Rock thing as well.

  • The only one thing I DIDN'T LIKE about the movie was the fact that they decided to end it with live aid, when they could have moved it a bit forward to the performance about a year later in Wembley. I think that was Freddie's apex as a performer. The command he had over the audience while wearing the infamous yellow jacket is second to none. A missed opportunity to show that amazing performance in my opinion.

  • Great great movie! Give that man an Oscar!

  • If you want accuracy read a biography or watch a documentary. Jeez, what do people expect?

  • You lot must actually have no life

  • I was the lead singer in Dakota, who was the opening act for Queen's The Game tour. I loved the movie, even with some of the inaccuracies. The band was wonderful to us, treating us great. What a thrill for my band!

  • Was a Fantastic Movie, Man!! \,,/ QUEEN!! \,,/

  • Just got home from the seeing the move LOVED IT


  • This film isn't a documental ;)

  • I thought Rami was phenomenal. I'd give the movie a 6 out of 10.

  • Bloody brilliant - a roller coaster ride of a film - got goose bumps from some of the amazing scenes esp Live Aid. Made me wish I'd been there - but alas I was too young. So inspiring!

  • Differences? Dont care at all! Rami Slayed the performance... I had goosebumps watching him perform.... I Love everything in the movie...

  • I think that this suppression of events happens generally speaking in movies, especially in biographies so as to pass the overall idea of a story. So this happens because real life is much more complex with so much information from all around. For instance I'm sure that to depict these several "break ups" of the band would be a waste of time since the band got together and stayed this way after all. Of course the focus on certain events against others and the whole idea is based on the director's point of view. Same goes for books whose plot one has to adjust properly and make a movie. Excuse me for my English!!

  • I watched it 3 times already and I think I will watch it at least once more. As far as inaccuracies go, I read Jim Hutton and Freddie got together in a club after Freddie wooing him and being rejected twice. But that's not that important.

  • I don't care who's criticising it for what Every movie will find haters I absolutely loved it Granted there a little more tweaks than you'd want but they had a great I'm part on the story at some stages n I loved the way it unfolded

  • It looks very much like a false moustache.

  • i love the movie, hope to see it a few times more

  • I can watch it again and again and again ! Just loved it !

  • I feel like they song less songs in the movie during live Aid and in real life they song more for live Aid. Tell me if I am right or not

  • but a really good movie, 10/10 would watch it again, what a legend, Queen

  • It was just a movie for god's sake

  • I went to Ealing Art College!!!!

  • Oscar worthy!

  • My bf was telling me things weren't accurate. I still think it was a good movie

  • You get a bit of truth, big lies, small lies... and all together it becomes..... history.

  • Not ignored .. i personally watched it 4 times ... from Pakistan a superb movie *QUEEN* *FREDDIE MERCURY*

  • No movies of this kind (biopics) are 100% accurate. That's why it's a movie and not a documentary :)

  • At least they canned Sascha Cohen. He would have butchered the film, he's so terrible. Listening to Queen is awesome, watching queen not so much. I remember all my brothers friends hated Queen when they got their push in the 70's. They liked girls, they saw a fairy on stage and wanted nothing to do with it. (THE LEOTARDS) They forgot that part in the movie, how it didn't go over to well for them in the beginning. Still love their music though.

  • but still his gay animal

  • Watched it and can't get out of this thril at the end.😍

  • Loved loved the movie.the end was nostalgic.

  • No time for critics. We are the champions.

  • Did not bother me at all! What a great movie!


  • If the band where fine with it and had heavy involvement who is anyone to say it's wrong lol, they knew Freddie better than anyone and they wanted his presence to be felt and it was from all accounts.

  • Good video I like knowing the facts 👍🏽

  • It was a characterisation, a cartoon if you like. I enjoyed the movie and Malik was fab but of course he overplayed it somewhat. I saw them twice live in London in the late seventies and they were a top band. I also turned down tickets to Live Aid and watched it on tv in the mega heat of London that summer's day and ever since on the DVD. Best concert ever! Great film too.

  • I enjoyed the movie but knowing a fair bit about Queen I did notice what a travesty it was biographically. This is probably not just about fitting a story into 2 hours but making the story more family friendly and appealing to the masses. I would expect a more complex biopic to come out one day but there was no denying this was a good start.

  • All these “mistakes” are to make the film more worth watching to make it more exciting

  • It is just a movie

  • It’s a movie, they need it to be more exciting and not have the complete story. Every movie does this.

  • . I live in a small city in Greece. I saw the movie and loved it. The movie theatre was full and everyone stood up and applauded at the end.

  • Y’all know there’s a thing called a poetic license right so they have the right to tweak some of the plot. Plus the bands history is too long to put into a 2 hour long film.

  • Rami Malek for Oscars

  • Started crying about 2/3 of the way through when I remembered rami malek wasn’t actually Fred and didn’t stop till about 20 mins after the film ended when asked to leave the cinema

  • I loved it, but they didn’t show anything about the opera stuff he did.

  • All of these changes make me hate hollywood

  • Just got back from seeing this. I cannot for the life of me understand the attacks on this film for its inaccuracy. Its not a bloody documentary, its a film trying to show off how amazing this band was and what a legend Freddie was. The whole cinema was singing along and clapped at the end so I say mission accomplished, it was brilliant. It was amazing, but GOD FORBID THEY RELEASE WE WILL ROCK YOU WITH A MUSTACHE!

  • Will there ever be a historically accurate movie?

  • Instead of finding faults, can't you appreciate the movie itself?

  • All these channels act like the producers aren’t going to purposely tweak some things to make it more interesting, that’s what normally happens with based stories. That’s literally why it says in the credits, BASED On A True Fantasy.

  • Just loved the movie.

  • All i can say is that Malik gave justice to the movie. Bravo!

  • Hated it. Cash grab music video

  • Great movie!

  • Who cares. The movie is great as it is.

  • Woah, so you’re telling me that the actual celebrity is fact and the actor portraying them ISNT actually them?!?!

  • Still an awesome film . Which made me laugh and made me cry . Freddie is a legend and the film gave us a insight into his life we never knew .

  • Loved the film SO much. Have been listening to Queen on repeat since! 😅

  • The one playing Brian may is definitely Brian May...

  • The eye thing really annoyed me all through the film as they actually highlight his eyes so much .... still an amazing film though

  • The m9vie may be very good but honestly...since Freddie not in it I rather not see it and watch him on you tube.

  • I like your coat

  • I saw a clip of the LiveAid scene with Malek and found it awful. I am outraged by the "changes," why do I want someone to lie to me about what happened? Why should I watch this sanitized fantasy from Brian May? As a hard core Freddie Mercury fan, I am disgusted.

  • Enjoy the movie for the entertainment, but don't take any of it to heart.

  • It still was a great movie

  • The movie was like the Avengers movies, safe,non offensive,paint by numbers movie making.

  • Flicks and the city...who care's my darling...you ruin the fact that this movie awakens the love we all have for queen and awareness to new listeners. I loved the movie...it's about a group that brought passion to rock and roll and a man who warmed out hearts...plus an awareness to the heartache and AIDS

  • Saw it, liked it. But let’s be real. Freddie Mercury WAS the after party and you can’t put that into a PG-13 movie.

  • I loved the movie

  • In the movie the band is playing "Fat Bottomed Girls" as part of their Queen II tour (1974/75), but actually the song was published in 1978 as a single from the album "Jazz"

    • We even hear it BEFORE the scene when Brian writes "We will rock you", which in real life was published before Fat Bottomed Girls

  • I loved the movie, have seen it twice and will own it when it comes out on DVD. Might just go see it again before it is out of theaters too! One of the best movies I have seen!! I was a teen when Queen started. I loved them then and still love them!

  • No movie tells the full truth overall great movie love it

  • Tbh I didnt even care whats wrong and right all I know is that the movie was beautiful, Malek was great. End of discussion

  • Yeah that’s a little annoying they could’ve kept it a little more true… But it is what it is also his eyes were to bulging LOL

  • Amazing movie! Smells like the oscars

  • i still love you to quuen

  • That movie is EPIC.

  • great movie was amazing

  • Freddie Mercury was a real freak. The rebellious sinful perverted Mercury died as a consequence of his behavior. What a loser.

  • There are so many made up parts, makes you ask yourself what am I watching?, Is this real life? is this just fantasy?... oh I get it!, lol.

  • This is why I won't waste my time watching this crap!

  • I’m expecting this movie to take all the awards.

  • this is a movie for entertainment purposes. Not a fucking documentary.

  • It’s a movie, not a documentary. ☝🏼

  • best movie by far

  • I thought it was trash, but then again I was with my alcoholic uncle and he was fucking drunk bothering me and I hate rock so, I was forced
