I thought it was fantastic!


I do not understand why it was scored as low as it was. Rami did an amazing job as Freddie! Really nailed it.
I loved Mike Myers too, and that Wayne's World joke was great!
I also loved that they showed his obsession with his cats. That is one of the things I love most about him.

My lone complaint is that Jim was not given the air time he deserved. I wish it would have went after Live Aid a while.

I enjoyed it a great deal
Rami Malek was really amazing
They gave a respectful, PG 13 treatment to the story that i found to be in good taste and fair
And yes! What a blast to see Mike Meyers in that role:)
Very good movie

Freddie Mercury was not diagnosed with HIV until well after Live Aid. That pretty much makes a sham of what was shown in the film, but if one replaced Live Aid with the concerts at Wembley through Knebworth in 1986, it is much closer to the facts. Although Mercury was not officially diagnosed until 1987, he exhibited signs, including fatigue and weight loss, of the disease while on tour.

In fact, Queen did not do any live shows after the official diagnosis, as Mercury was more concerned with creating studio music up to his death. The vocals for Innuendo and Made in Heaven were laid down during this time. I believe the movie would have been better if they had shown this instead of wasting so much time fighting with the made up studio executive played by Mike Myers.

I thought this movie was amazing; very well acted and I learned a lot about the band Queen. I have such respect for them now...

I enjoyed it and I didn't have very high hopes and read a lot of the whiny reviews prior.
