Bohemian Rhapsody JackWallace'S REVIEW

Bohemian Rhapsody

BY JackWallace superstar

A superficial, by the numbers biopic. Sure, a lot of movies based on actual events twist the truth to make the story more entertaining, but "Bohemian Rhapsody" is full of lies and I thought the changes were disrespectful to Freddie Mercury. The direction, colour grade and cinematography makes this look like something that was made for Netflix. The script is corny and contrived. While I enjoyed Rami Melek's performance during the 1985 Live Aid concert sequence, the fake stadium and crowds of people which looked like they were done using After Effects took me out of the film. The music is good, but "Bohemian Rhapsody" is pretty lame. You'll learn more about Freddie Mercury and Queen from watching documentaries, videos and reading books.
