The final song on the end credits is 'The Show Must Go On' and with this film, it will make sure that's what happens with Freddies and Queens legacy as artists. Whether you are a fan or not this film gives an overall picture of a band who became the greatest band in the world - which is what they planned to do from the beginning. The actor struts and preens with infectious charisma, and a mouth full of Mercury's oversized choppers, and he miraculously captures the powerful stage magic of his character. These real-life stories are of course worth telling, but the difference between following a formula -- one that was thoroughly skewered a decade ago in -- and discovering genuine moments of intimacy and life is crucial.

Bohemian Rhapsody is the latest in a long line of already released and upcoming biopics-and it's one of the most enjoyable theatre experiences I've had all year.

You were a true showman. Then Freddie becomes tragically ill with a terminal disease. However, at this point, we can safely say China will contribute a disproportionate share of its international box office.
This is the definition of a crowd-pleaser. This is a bad sign for its legs. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. Then we have a possible award winning performance by Rami Malek playing Freddie Mercury. I'm always looking for a movie to break out of the cliched way of telling a biopic, but I will admit this film slightly suffers from that at times. Its just excitation, all through the night, it's a celebration of one great band, and one legendary lead singer. This was also 15% higher than the same weekend , which is a more important result.

It's not a perfect movie, but I think I can go as far as to say it's a perfectly made film in terms of its presentation. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his band mates just in time for Live Aid. Ben Hardy excellent as Roger Taylor. Having seen him in Mr Robot he definitely had the acting ability to do this role, but its his actions and body language which make him superb to play Freddie. This film is more than just nostalgia though. It was better than I thought it would be. The 72,000 strong crowd who all synchronised their hands for the performance of Radio Gaga gave me goosebumps.
It's a kind of magic. Except several of these scenes feel mishandled, which is odd considering director Bryan Singer X-Men has often found parallels in big studio films for the gay experience.

For the movie that it is, it works extremely well.
