A biopic of the life of Freddie Mercury, of the legendary rock band Queen.
Okay, I’ll say it again: I’m so old I used to go see Queen (and Mercury) whenever they were performing in LA.
And having said that, this was an excellent movie. They got most of the detail right, although the ending, where the band breaks up and comes back together for the Life Aid concert, was pretty much made up for the movie.
The guy who played Freddie Mercury, Rami Malek, was excellent, and the hair and makeup person for the movie did an amazing job of making him look like the iconic rock star.
And the music! Mr. Otter got annoyed with me for singing along, but how could I not? This was the soundtrack to my older teenage years, and I still listen to Queen and love them.
A wonderful movie, watch it for the music if nothing else.
