On November 2, Bohemian Rhapsody was released to theaters. This movie shows the story of one of the world’s most famous bands, Queen, from the beginning to their performance at Live AID.

Throughout the movie, you’re drawn in from the excited state of Freddie Mercury’s first performance to the band going out for Live Aid. The movie has a fun vibe to it with sprinkles of heavy, serious situations. Watching Freddie grow as a person and with his music is a trance you can’t help but fall into. While watching, you get to see how the band became Queen, the moment they were discovered, how they wrote their songs, and their personal lives.

Rami Malek, who plays Freddie Mercury, made a stellar performance in staying as true to his character as possible. From the boisterous personality on stage to the confused Indian boy on the inside, Malek hit the nail on his acting. Paul Prenter, played by Allen Leech, was truly portrayed as the wolf in sheep’s clothing in the movie. When we first meet him, he seems like the concerned and hopelessly in love best friend, but it turns out he is a human parasite.

As most know, the life of a rock star was most definitely not a pg-13 rating, unlike the movie. Remaining members of Queen asked for the movie not to be rated R. If you have a keen eye, you can notice the apparent drug use, alcohol abuse, and affairs of the band. Some fans might be upset that it wasn’t completely truthful, but I thought it was a good call for the younger fans who were dying to see the movie.

Overall, the movie captured the heartbreak, happiness, and difficulties of being in a rock band with random personalities. Although dramatized for cinematic effect, the feeling of love for all the band members is evident.
