Rotten Tomatoes is Wrong: Bohemian Rhapsody


A young and confident Freddie Mercury rises shirtless out of bed and begins to prep for the Live Aid Concert. Just when Freddie has completed his final preps and is ready to front his audience, we are taken back to the night that began his career, when he was just an extra-toothed kid pulling luggage off of planes. Bohemian Rhapsody takes its viewers through the whirlwind lives of Freddie Mercury and the band Queen. From the hysterical shots of high-pitched Galileo recordings to Freddie’s struggles with sexuality to the heart-wrenching Aids epidemic, Bohemian Rhapsody gives movie-goers insight into Queens upcoming, downfall, and reunion. And after we’ve seen it all, Bohemian Rhapsody puts us right back where we started: backstage of the Live Aid concert. With unbelievable shots of the actual Live Aid concert in 1985, viewers are given the real feel of what Queen was able to do to friends, fans, and the world. Do not let Rotten Tomatoes’ unjust 62% fool you, Bohemian Rhapsody is worth so much more.
