Watched it last night.

Very tough film to review for me being a huge Queen fan as it is hard to separate my love for the music from the film. That being said:

1) I ended up liking Freddy less after the film than before it. Actually hoping that the film most of missed the mark on him. His relationship with his band mates seemed almost - well, plastic.

2) A LOT of missed opportunities IMO to delve into his character.

SPOILERS

As an example, we don't get a scene with him and a Doctor when we first find out he has aids.  The public's interest in his health is kind of rolled up in all one fictitious press conference rather than dripped out like in happened in real life. etc.

All and all - not sure I could recommend to non Queen fans.

I found the film troubling in a way I don't fully comprehend.

I think it was something to do with seeing someone who had achieved do much creatively and they were already dead at an age I've barely started, but it had quite an intense effect on me. Quite an unpleasant one.

In terms of the film, I'd have to say my ultimate feeling was it felt quite ironic: There's a moment Freddy said that he didn't want his life and death to be a morality tale.

The way the film was made it was hard to take much else from it.

Well said.
