I was never a fan of Queen’s music or Freddie Mercury, but this film fosters an appreciation of both. The story covers the band’s career with the focus on Mercury. As the lead singer, Rami Malek beautifully creates a character who’s headstrong, brilliant, charismatic and outrageous (for his day). The narrative follows a traditional arc, covering the band’s creative output and success (with all the hits), as well as Mercury’s personal struggles. Without ever being emotionally involving or especially original in approach or direction, it still manages to create an interesting biopic. NOTE: In an ironic (and somewhat disguised) role, Mike Myers gets to diss the title song, which was a reference to his performance of the song in “Wayne’s World.”
