I watched the movie last night and it was enjoyable enough but seemed to rush through some parts - they seemed to make their first album and appear on TotPs performing Killer Queen in no time at all - and concentrated too much time on Freddie's relationship with Mary.

It also played liberties with the chronology of the songs with scenes of them performing Fat Bottomed Girls on a US tour prior to recording A Night At The Opera.

Rami Malek was pretty good as Freddie though.

I've been toying with going to watch it but that has made my mind up. If you're going to do a biopic at least get the factual things correct - especially something as easily ascertained as that is.

There's other things in the movie that make no sense. For instance the movie gives the impression that immediately prior to Live Aid the group are not on speaking terms and they hadn't done a tour in years when in fact they had released The Works album just the year before and done a global tour.
