Gets an A.  Great flick.  Rami Malek does a great job as Mercury.  The band actors are dead ringers for the other members, especially Brian May.  See it.

I enjoyed it too.  A lot of reviewers panned the movie because it is not the typical gritty biopic made about most rock-n-roll stars who died tragically.  But it is easier to watch and remember the better aspects of the band and FM.  I hadn’t known that he was actually of Indian descent, born in Zanzibar and spent most of his childhood in India.

He was of the Zoroastrian religion, too, being an ethnic Parsi.  Complex fellow.
