Movie Summary:

A chronicle of the years leading up to Queen's legendary appearance at the Live Aid (1985) concert.

The Bent*Spud 2 Cents:

I'll be the first to admit that I had doubts going in to the theater to see this movie. I had heard the on-set stories and the blow-outs, and I hadn't seen Bryan Singer direct anything memorable beyond the successful X-Men films, but I was proven wrong and servings of humble pie are all mine to eat. This movie is factually fudgy in some areas, which would no doubt annoy Queen purists, but the tweaks were done for dramatic effect and really doesn't change the bottom line that Queen were an iconic and quintessential rock band in the 70s and 80s and that Freddie Mercury is someone that will never be replaced. A must-see.

Most Memorable Part: The final sequence that re-enacts the band's Live Aid appearance is quite a spectacle.
