Despite all the bad things I'm going to say in this review , this movie really made my day . I adore what I've seen here and found it to be fascinating piece of work.
Pros first : Ramy Malek's incredible performance and The recreation of live aid concert were the biggest achievement here. The band's fights and the story behind each songs were great.
The sound mixing and costumes in this movie also need appreciation.
Cons : after we give it some time to think about it, this film always takes the safe side with no risks at all. For example Freddy's sexuality was handled poorly . Movies like battle of the sexes succeeded in this area in a clever way but here i don't have any explanation . maybe they were afraid. The beginning sequence wasn't quite smooth at any level .
Overall i had fun watching this work but i thinks it misses lots of pieces . 70/100
