Bohemian Rhapsody movie will rock you, early reviews report
Rami Malek acquires raves for playing Freddie Mercury, lead artist of Queen.
Prepare to blast your head: Bohemian Rhapsody, the hotly anticipated component film about the late vocalist Freddie Mercury and the band Queen, is going to open, and audits started to stream out on Tuesday.
The film is by all accounts hitting all the correct notes with fans, particularly Rami Malek’s execution as Mercury. Here are a couple of pieces from early surveys.
Bohemian Rhapsody is without a doubt a stellar Queen biopic
“While in front of an audience, Malek is extraordinary, coy and hypnotizing as he swaggers and dresses with each ounce of certainty of the genuine Mercury. His precise position and press of vocals bar out of his spandex-secured outline like a splendid light to the sky. Furthermore, that is similarly as Mercury in front of an audience.” — Patrick Holland, CNET
Film doesn’t satisfy Rami Malek’s execution
“In front of an audience, Malek’s Freddie is a studded cowhide peacock, swoony and freed, giving the existence a chance to compel spill out of him in a transcendent tremolo … Offstage, Malek nails the star’s combination of beguile and conscience with a smoothly brazen direction.” — Owen Gleiberman, Variety
Better as an inception story of Queen’s hits than a Mercury biopic
“A question case of how a film can be engaging and notwithstanding elating without being especially great, Bohemian Rhapsody has the driving vitality of a stadium hymn and the fizzy unimportance of a bubblegum pop tune.” — Alonso Duralde, The Wrap
