Both films play with the facts to suit their director's visions yet this one seems to have received mostly kudos while The Doors was panned if memory serves. Also, I didn't find Academy Award-winning actor Rami Malek to be any better as Freddie than non-nominated Val Kilmer was as Morrison in the previous film.
Don't know about the US, but BH got eviscerated by most of the more respected reviewers in the quality press in the UK. It was the same with Hugh Jackman's The Showman, which also went on to make megabucks.
The Greatest Showman. I took my kid to see that. Astonishingly, insultingly bad.
