Un­for­tu­nately we have heard some not so great things and some re­ally not so great things about the (es­sen­tially) Fred­die Mer­cury biopic, rang­ing from the lack of ac­cu­racy in the por­trayal of events to the cast­ing. How­ever, it’s a film about Queen, fea­tur­ing all their great­est hits on the big screen for two hours. We can­not see how we are not go­ing to like it.
