The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
The story of Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek) and his bandmates, as Queen rise from obscurity to Live Aid glory.
