Wow! This would have been a 10/10 if there’d been just a bit more oomph in the day-to-day bits. It was spectacular. You really must see it. Even if Queen and rock aren’t your thing this is a superb movie about people, families, friends, and finding yourself.
I saw it in ‘Screen X’. 270 degree parts made it absolutely engaging. Way better than 3D and the gimmicks of 4DX. I’m sorely tempted to see it in IMAX I enjoyed it so much.
Rami Malek is amazing as Freddie Mercury. The band are cast wonderfully. In fact I don’t think there’s a casting misstep in this. Even the almost parody-like Ray Foster played brilliantly by Mike Myers is phenomenal.
The ups. The downs. The fun. And the games. All brilliantly done. There are very few dramatic missteps and the whole film leading up to the Live Aid event is a rollercoaster ride of real life with the dramatic bits selected.
Just go see it. It is a real cinema movie. Bigger than real life and yet of real life.
