    Went to see it today, not sure of the timeline of the events in and around the film but the last 20 minutes or so are brilliant

    Yer think certain parts are changed for the film. Don't think he told them about his illness until about 2 years after live aid but even so, great film. The live aid scene at the end I forgot I was watching actors

    If you go on YouTube and type it in there is a spoiler type thing that changes the dates.

    I was a little disappointed with it but had built it up in my head

    I saw it last week an enjoyed it a lot more than what I thought. It was mostly well done but not sure about changing someone's timeline/life to that extent to suit the plot of the film.

    I'm glad that there's been a resurgence in people listening to Queen, he was really the best frontman in history.

    Went to see it on Friday - thoroughly enjoyed it and would happily see it again. Not too worried about poetic licence on a few things, it is entertainment not a documentary.

    Got to agree Mercury was the best front man

    Don't know how accurate it is, but apparently Brian May wanted Freddie's death much earlier in the film as he said it was only the half way point for the band. Bollocks! The others are talented, but still nothing without Freddie. I also liked Adam Lambert as his replacement, great showman that was needed and terrific voice, but it was still Freddie's music they were playing. As usual just May being up himself (if true of course lol).

    as someone whose knowledge of queen is the music and only knowing Freddie had died too soon, I really enjoyed the film and the actor who played Freddie, was immense.

    I don't think we'll get a true docu-drama on Freddie's life/Queen as a whole until more of them have passed away.

    As for the Brian May thing about it only being the halfway point of the band, I've never really considered them Queen not just without Freddie but with John as well. He may have been the quiet one but he was as much a part of the whole thing. Now it's only half the band and I consider the to be "Que"

    I was relistening to Wembley 86 the other day as some of basslines wereally superb, he has never got the recognition he deserved.

    Enjoyable but there were a some bits that were not the true story.
    Also it struck me that John Deacon may have been a great bassist but had terrible taste in hairstyles.

    Was there a better live performance than the 20 minutes of Queen at Live Aid when Freddie had the whole stadium in the palm of his hand? I’m struggling to think of one....
