“MAMMAAAAAAAAAAA, OOOOOOOOOOOh” Yeah, I know! If you don’t like Queen, this biopic will make you LOVE everything about these guys as humans! I remember asking myself a few years ago “Why has Freddy Mercury’s life not been put into the big screen yet?” But here we are! The story of QUEEN! Not just Freddy!
I remember seeing that there was talk that Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) would play Freddy; so when I heard Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) was going to be Freddy, I thought about it and was preparing for just about anything and honestly, I compared interviews and performances that Freddy Mercury did while still alive and Rami BLEW IT OUT OF THE WATER! Every actor has that ONE movie or scene or character that makes them and they are remembered for and I feel this is IT for Rami.
The movie was everything that you would expect, it was entertaining and heartfelt, it was honest and captivating. I personally watched it twice before writing this review and I sang and laughed both times. I will leave you with this thought. I am not a HUGE fan, but I am a fan! I know this film will convert some folks and justify the feelings of the rest of the world!
