An enthralling celebration of Queen, their music, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and convention to become one of history's most beloved entertainers.

Good story, just too bad it isn't what really happened with the band. I know most biographical movies change some parts of the story, but this one changed too much.

A very engaging glimpse into the formation of Queen. Though the personal struggles of Freddie Mercury is at the forefront, the film still sheds light on the toils of the band. I do wish that the other characters did not seem secondary, but regardless, this was a film by talented individuals and that was obviously transparent. You don’t just mourn the loss of Mercury’s life, but the loss of good talent and a good band. Warning: You may need a box of tissue when watching it!

A lite wash over the band's history with a focus on Freddie Mercury's closeted gay lifestyle. Not much depth here as to the band's music, and the song timelines used are mostly incorrect, which is odd considering two band members produced it??? Overall, it was a fun watch.

Whatever truth there is to it, it's just a really great movie.

This was rather disappointing..queen light..i was unimpressed at how they made freddie look like some great guy when those of us who grew up with the band know they were not some squeeky clean bunch of kids..yes Malik did a formidable job but there was no real umpff in the story ..find it strange that Brian May was pary of this as it made him look insignificant..

Reporter 2: Freddie, uh, your teeth! Why don't you get your teeth fixed?
Freddie Mercury: I live in Britain. I don't want to stand out.
===
Freddie Mercury: I have four extra incisors.

*** expanded quote on his incisors:
Our lead singer just quit.
-Well, then you'll need someone new.
Any ideas?
-What about me?
Uh, not with those teeth, mate.
- Freddie sang: I know what I'm doin' ... I got a feeling ...
The others harmonizing: Doin' all right
-I was born with four additional incisors. More space in my mouth means more range.
