Way.... way too safe.

Ugh... So much of the story was censored. The man was bi sexual get over it people. The story was completely nudered of all of Freddy Mercury's struggles. Not at all accurate of how events actually played out. Such a burning disappointment.

I loved the positive role models and how it shows a lot of the making of there songs. If you are a queen fan of any kind or you like any other classic rock band. This is a awesome movie for you
