Flick Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

11/03/2018 12:16:00 AM

I admit: I'm not a fan of this famous band. Though I like their music – well, sometimes. But I don't hate them either, and that shouldn't actually stop me from appreciating more of what they offer.

Bohemian Rhapsody appears to be another one from the movies that depicted the life of Freddie Mercury, the famous and infamous frontman of QUEEN. The guy admitted his sexuality during the summit of Queen's popularity that somewhat cost his marriage and raised eyebrows of many – especially at times when homosexuality isn't celebrated and accepted in society. It didn't help that such sickness like the sexually-transmitted AIDS has put him in a bad light after a tell-all from his ex-lover.

These, probably, has put people's expectations in question as if it will end up being just another flick that romanticizes the noise media made about him in the past. And thankfully for us, it didn't go that way.

While a lot of us love to hear gossips turn into real stories like mythical theories being debunked by torturing-mannered evidence, it's interesting that the movie strayed away from the usual recognition when the name Freddie Mercury comes to mind. Bohemian Rhapsody had a purpose and lived with it – that is depicting Mercury's life as a musician more than another victim of an epidemic disease.

The way the Live Aid stage was created has become a major player in making the movie aesthetically pleasing.

Bohemian Rhapsody is one movie regarding a notable figure done in a very conventional away without the aid of focusing too much on the controversy. It simply made Freddie Mercury a human being doing extraordinary art and its consequences – both good and bad. Entertaining, to say the least.

The Verdict: 8/10

Bohemian Rhapsody is a motion picture by 20th Century Fox, New Regency, GK Films and Regency Films. Distributed by 20th Century Fox. The biopic stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, vocalist of QUEEN. Also starring, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joe Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, and  Mike Myers. Produced by Graham King and Jim Beach. Directed by Bryan Singer.
