Pretty great for what it is
The surviving members of queen made a movie about their former years. It’s totally over the top and so cliched that it feels like parody. But the thing is, queens music is so fucking good and Freddie Mercury is such a performance artist that someone doing a solid impression of him for two hours is entertaining enough.
This film was way over edited and it feels like it’s compensating for such a stale script
Seriously how the actual fuck did anyone think this film would be understood by a mainstream audience.
I can only asume a full and complete knowledge of the game (which I do not have) would have helped the film make sense.
It's not like the plot is complex. far from it. It's just that once the opening title was over (and for the record I was very into this film for the first 7 minutes) I spent the first hour…
