I heard it was a bit of a miss but the lead actor did a good job.
2018 BMW R nineT
“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Read a review might give it a miss.

I enjoyed it but I didn't really go in with any expectations.

I think what I liked about it is, although they did take some creative licenses with timeline etc, cos Brian May and Roger Taylor were heavily involved throughout you get the impression that it's more grounded than it could have been.

Anyway, worth a watch I think :D

Can't see the point, especially the Live Aid sequence because the real thing was extremely well filmed with great sound . Queen made (Some) great albums and promotional videos and their best performances were filmed and released as videos so what is the point of this pale imitation ? Why cant Brian May just let it lie and let the body of work speak for itself ? I understand that Sacha Baron Cohen was originally going to play Freddie but didn't like the script. Now that's something I might have paid to see .
