My friends, a champion movie is out now
BOHEMIAN Rhapsody isa hit all over again.
This time it is the film, named after Queen’s epic anthem, that is delivering in spades.
Bohemian Rhapsody has been described as a “foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury”.
The film follows their meteoric rise to stardom from humble beginnings, with their catalogue of iconic songs delivering a super soundtrack.
Rami Malek stars as Mercury and does a remarkable job of tapping into the complexity of the performer. The actor has said in many interviews promoting the film that he is a big fan of Queen’s music and you can tell that with what he brings to the role.
One of the highlights of the film is the now famous Live Aid performance in 1985 and you feel like you’re in the crowd at Wembley.
Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor served as creative consultants on the film, which is directed by Brian Singer (The Usual Suspects).
Bohemian Rhapsody runs for 134 minutes, is rated M and opens at Bowen Summergarden Cinemas today.
