If Bohemian Rhapsody is so great, why was the best part of it Tom Hollander saying a single word? Don't get me wrong, Rami Malek deserves props for the role, that much is true (less perhaps than he's been getting, but still, props). But beyond that, Bohemian Rhapsody is bland, choppy, arguably even offensive. There might be some value in one of those sing-along type deals if you can get enough Queen fans together for one, but I'll never know, because I have no interest in re-watching this. Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product.
