Tells the life story of the band Queen focusing on Freddie Mercury�s life till the pick success of this legendary band. Directed by Bryan Singer who left the project after awhile because of problems he dealt with the production and the filming continued cinematographer Newton Thomas Segel who directed some of the scenes until Dexter Fletcher officially helmet it. But, because of rule of Directors Guild of America; Singer still deserves the credit.

Rami Malek casted as Freddie Mercury; lead vocal of Queen, Lucy Boynton as Mary Austin, Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Queen�s lead guitarist, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor; Queen�s drummer, Joe Mazzello as John Deacon; Queen�s bass guitarist. The film broke many records such as the highest-grossing musical biographical film of all time, Fox�s top ten highest-grossing films and one of the highest grossing drama films.

Malek did a strong performance as Mercury and one of the best performance of the year. Most of Queen�s best hit is played in the film from �Bohemian Rhapsody, Love of My Life, Radio Ga Ga, We Are The Champions and etc.� This fact makes the audience feel the film realness and felt like we are in a Queen�s concert. Especially the animated concert in Live Aid. This film way more wonderful than expected.

This film has surpassed everybody�s expectations. The story how it was built from Mercury was starting out and close it with the picked of Queen�s legacy was amazing. How the jokes were put out smartly gives this film another point and how Mercury�s character is portrait so humane gives another plus point for the film. The story-telling in this film is perfect.

Yes, there are some facts differences but that still could be tolerated. One of the most inspiring film film of the year, because this film has changed a lot of people lives!!
