Terminator light with a weird script and no heart or soul.
Some cool action and ides for sure, and I like both Damson Idris and Anthony Mackie but the lack of focus and direction cuts this movie experience short.
A paint by numbers rom-com with a twist. It has the gay best friend in it and the goofy sibling of course. It has the problematic ex. It has the pruney but understanding mom and the conservative dad that comes around in the end. It is all there.
The only thing that is "different" is that the romance is between two women.
The movie is a bit uneven in the performances, but I suspect that is because of the script…
A wonderful homage to Queen and a tremendous performance by Rami Malek. He will be nominated for this one. For sure.
The first half of the movie seemed a bit rushed, somehow and I wonder if it wouldn`t be more beneficial to the story to show some more guts in the portrayal of Mercurys destruktive lifestyle. It is insinuated more than shown. But in no way is it done bad.
It is, however, in all the musical scenes this movie truly shines. Studio sessions and concert scenes are absolutely amazing to watch. Absolutely amazing.
