I usually don't enjoy making-of/backstage movies, but the cinematography here was very effective, the interactions between bandmates were well-shown (instead of making this a completely one-man show), and you can't fight that toe-tapping music. Good film!

Shows how important it is to have a real friend. The acting was perfect and casting too!
How electrifying was the final stadium show, even though it was obviously photoshopped et al but so well done you felt you were there. What a way for Freddie to go out.

Let me get this straight: you make a movie about Queen and put in nothing about the making of the "Flash Gordon" soundtrack or "Who Wants to Live Forever," the theme song from "Highlander"? What the friggin' poop makers of this movie about Queen.

This is an intense Life story of the vocalist of one of the greatest British rock and roll bands, Queen. Farrokh Bulsara (Freddie Mercury) was known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Extravagant, eccentric singer, songwriter and record producer. This band made a change in the structure of the music of that era, opera-like composition. Unbelievable creations!.

The fact that the surviving members of Queen were producers on this movie is insulting to Queen fans. It is a beyond sugar coated movie loaded with enough inaccuracies about the band that they should make a movie about how this thing got made. I was looking forward to this movie and can't tell enough people who haven't seen it to avoid it.

The movie is boring. But I like Freddie Mercury. His vocal is fantastic and he is very generous. I like his songs.

I made 2020 my year of catching up on movies, and this is what I started with. Very good, Rami Malek's performance was a bit exaggerated but in a good way, I thought. I loved all of the music and the concert scenes.

Queen is possibly the greatest British rock band of the ‘70s. This film is a rusted crown not fit to be placed upon its hallowed brow. Disjointed, silly, maudlin, cliched, plasticized, inaccurate, smug, and just, ugh. Put on “Queen II” and wrench up the volume. Ça va?

This is a good (great?) movie if you're looking for an introduction to Queen. It gives a VERY quick overview of their history and highlights of their time with Freddie Mercury.

If, like me, you grew up with Queen, this movie is a superficial portrayal and you won't learn anything about the band you don't already know.

I'm not rating this movie, because I don't want to influence the opinion of people who just look at the number of stars.

76 quotes posted in IMDb already, thanks to the contributors. Here are those on Freddie's chompers:

Reporter 2: Freddie, uh, your teeth! Why don't you get your teeth fixed?
Freddie Mercury: I live in Britain. I don't want to stand out.
===
Freddie Mercury: I have four extra incisors.

*** expanded quote on his incisors:
Our lead singer just quit.
-Well, then you'll need someone new.
Any ideas?
-What about me?
Uh, not with those teeth, mate.
- Freddie sang: I know what I'm doin' ... I got a feeling ...
The others harmonizing: Doin' all right
-I was born with four additional incisors. More space in my mouth means more range.
