Saw this last night, Rami Malek was the perfect choice for playing Freddie, he got the mannerisms just right.

Watched it yesterday. Hard to separate the 'fan' bit of me that is annoyed by the rewriting of history, but it works and it was good fun (if a bit clunky in places).

I thought the casting of the Freddie, Brian and John was excellent.

I'm not a Queen fan, so maybe that helped, but I really enjoyed this.

It was clunky in bits and I thought the CGI-tastic Wembley finale was disappointing and could've done with some more original footage being mixed in, but overall it was a crowd pleasing film with a strong family message.

Great casting as well and took me a few minutes to recognise Mike Myers.
