I just saw it in a large screen theatre.

I'd have to rate it 4/5 stars.  The music is excellent, the re-enactment of the performances is excellent, and some of the anecdotes are excellent.

What was not so good:  Freddie Mercury's gayness was treated as somewhat creepy and dehumanizing (a lot of rock stars in the 70s and 80s were just as promiscuous when they were straight/it felt that there was nothing good about his relationship with Paul), the breakup of the band portrayed in the movie never happened in real life, Freddy Mercury wasn't the only member of the band - or even the first member of the band - to have a side project, he didn't get his AIDS diagnosis until AFTER Live-Aid, and they just skipped the last six years of his life (which were spent in a healthy gay relationship.)

It's a very long movie but I would have liked some exploration of other members of the band.
