The first reactions to Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody have been shared online and while there have been some very mixed reviews, there’s certainly a lot of love for Rami Malek’s performance as Freddie Mercury. The movie won’t arrive for most of us for several weeks, but here’s what the critics had to say.
BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY: That Live Aid performance gave me chills. The rest of the movie…

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.

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

Bloody Hell! Absolutely did not expect @BoRhapMovie to be a thousand degrees of fantastic. Rami Malek has a kind of magic and one vision of a champion performance. Prepare to be rocked!!! #BohemianRhapsody pic.twitter.com/dzJ7UO6hYu
