"Bohemian Rhapsody" movie - opinions?
sweevo
Dear Horizon (and fellow Queen fans),

I am thinking of going to see the new Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody at the insistence of my cousin and parents. However, as a lifelong Queen fan, I have my doubts about the movie's quality assurance and accuracy - how well does it depict the band, and most importantly, how far does it go into the uncharted territory of its main subject, the late great Freddie Mercury? Is it worth viewing? I fear that if I go to see it, then my vision of a Queen movie will be shattered like a broken pedestal. On the other hand, it might just be what I've been waiting for.

Yours sincerely,
S.

A few of my friends have been to see it. I asked them the same question since I had the same doubts. It doesn't go into depth into his "private" life too much. Neither does it take a swipe. It is more of a tribute to Freddie. Not a brilliant film but Queen fans will enjoy it. If you want the dirt digged up you will have to go elsewhere. That sums up their opinions, I think. Is that reassuring?
If it helps I have been given some very positive reviews since this was posted originally. Appreciations of the sound experience as well as the visual.

I haven't seen this film yet.
But whilst on the Azura cruise ship a few years back, they had a Freddie Mercury Tribute act on. I was bit apprehensive, but Dearest had seen the same guy on the Oriana the year before.
I don't know the chaps name, I'll have to look it up, but as the audience came into the theatre, I could see parents with their children right down the front.
I thought 'What on earth will these children think?'
I needn't have worried.
On came the guy, looking and sounding like Freddie and he was marvelous with those children, chatting away with them as if their parents weren't there!
The house band were doing their Queen bit and they were fabulous. The lead guitarist, as Brian May, got a standing ovation as did the chap who was Freddie.
Those children became Queen fans that night and if we ever go on a cruise again, and this chap is on, I'm going to be in the front row this time!!!
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Sweevo, it's wildly factually inaccurate, but it's a good film.

Factually inaccurate? I'm surprised considering it had the band's backing.

Maybe they needed to alter the timeline on some events for dramatic purposes. I don't think it is done out of disrespect.
