Movie Reviews

An Utter and Complete Waste of Time
James Allen | East Coast | 03/27/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The only reason I gave this DVD 1 star is because 0 stars was not an option.
The DVD was a complete waste of time. There was absolutely NO Queen music in it. The rare footage of the band is video only. There is no accompanying sound.
All it is is interviews with maybe four or five people who say they knew Queen, and they talk about how great and magnificent they thought Queen were. It's really nothing more than that, so don't buy it.
Other than a few moments of interview with Freddie and Brian, there is almost no footage of the band doing anything, really. It's all outside parties being interviewed.
Waste of 20 dollars..

"For 60 minutes several people talk about:
- how close they were to Freddie
- how important they were to him
- how do they like particular songs

I was really disappointed. If you want Queen - go buy another copy of Wembley.

PS Anyway it was my fault. Its stated clearly: "Unauthorized".. good sign to expect low quality content. Queen would never authorize this.."

". . which would be the only use for this crap DVD. If you have a striking urge to purchase this DVD, instead beat your head against a wall until the urge goes away. Watching Peter Freestone and several other of Freddie's 'hangers on' whoring themselves to make money off of Freddie even after his death made me ill. This video is not about Freddie; it's about which of his gay pals can claim that they had the biggest piece of him, the greatest knowledge of who Freddie really was. If I could have rated it -10, I would have. As the French would say, "crapette"."
Terrible rip-off

"Don't buy this thing. Get Wembley or On Fire or either Greatest
hits collection or Freddie Mercury's Solo collection...or even
'The Three Amigos'...just don't get this.

I'm a liberal democrat, but whoever put this mess together
should be publicly flogged.

But major thumbs-up to Amazon for posting the unfavourable
reviews without flinching. I've adored absolutely everything
else I have ever gotten from them."
