Rami Malek [Mr Robot (TV series 2015-); Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014); Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (2013)] offers an astonishing and outstanding recreation of Freddie Mercury in Bryan Singer’s less than warts-and-all film about the charismatic vocalist and the meteoric rise of Queen through their iconic songs and revolutionary approach to sound.

The band gain unparalleled success; but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career.

The result is a near-implosion in the band as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control; but there is a triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, it cements the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

Bohemian Rhapsody is great entertainment, a real emotional celebration re-living the meteoric rise of Queen and their music, and especially the unforgettable talent of Freddie Mercury. An outstanding central performance from Rami Malek, backed by a strong ensemble cast, a convincing evocation of the Seventies/ Eighties and a breath-taking Live Aid Sequence are the film’s greatest strengths.
