"Utter rubbish. People, no matter how much you love the band, do not waste your money on this amateurish effort. Not one interview with the band, their family, or friends is used. Not one Queen song is played. No clips of the band in concert or otherwise, is used, nor are any clips of the band's videos. Only three or four actual photos of the band are used (more photos of David Bowie are used than of Queen!). Instead, pencil sketches of the indvidual band members are featured (and featured ad nauseum). These sketches are so bad as to be laughable. When the sketches aren't used, we're treated to video of various areas in England that have significance to what's being discussed (Wembley Stadium during the Live Aid portion, for example). In too many instances, all that's onscreen is a drum kit with stage lights flashing on it, or just closeups of the stage lights themselves. In many stretches, video of the narrarator clad in black leather riding his motorcycle are used instead of anything actually related to the band. The facts that are presented are well-known retreads already known by anyone even remotely interested in the band, and some of their "facts" are dead wrong. The narrator states that Freddie says, "I still love you" at the end of the video for "I'm Going Slightly Mad," when it's actually at the end of the video for "These Are The Days Of Our Lives". It is astounding that work of such little effort was deemed worthy enough to release on DVD. I adore this band and was hoping to stumble across some clip of an interview I hadn't seen before or learn something new about them. Thankfully I'd only rented this DVD and even in that, I would love to be able to get back my rental fee and hour spent watching this trash. If I could give this zero stars, I would."
The worst buyers remorse that I have ever felt! And i only p

"This dvd isn't worth the disc that it is burned on. It has no actual footage of the band, hardly any actual photos and the worst part about it is that they used these horrible "drawings" of each band member throughout the dvd. The dvd was narrated by Liam "thinks he's funny when he's not" Dale. Good grief. Couldn't they get anyone better for one of the best bands ever formed? I stopped watching after 5 minutes and even that was too long. That means I paid $1.40 for each minute??? What a waste. I want my money back."
