Reviews of the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody have disagreed on many points, but not on one major one — the strength of star Rami Malek in channeling the spirit of Freddie Mercury.
One pivotal scene, in the film and the real-life band’s history, is the group’s 1985 performance at the Live Aid concert at Wembley Stadium in London.
It’s often referred to as Queen’s single greatest live performance, and that’s a lot to magic to live up to for Malek and the rest of the creative team behind Bohemian Rhapsody.
