Rami Malek will play the iconic Freddie Mercury in the soon to be released 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. With the release of the film quickly inbound, reactions to the Queen biopic are already online.
Following a rather impressive trailer earlier this year, the new film is hotly anticipated. However going by the reactions people are sharing online, it seems that Malek's portrayal of Mercury may be the only redeeming factor of the upcoming biopic.
'Bohemian Rhapsody' is due for release in Irish cinemas on October 26th, and here are some of the early reactions to the film:
BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY: That Live Aid performance gave me chills. The rest of the movie...

just did a double feature of A STAR IS BORN and BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY and yeeeeesh that contrast didn’t do the latter any favors. Rami Malek sure nails that imitation, tho.

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is a glorified Wikipedia entry but Rami Malek plays Freddie Mercury (and wears his wonderful costumes) with incredible gusto

My biggest takeaway from BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is how much the rest of Queen resents Freddie Mercury. But Rami Malek is outstanding. Also, the fact Mike Myers is in this movie is genius and insane.
