The Worlds Biggest Asian Star
4 February 2001 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Let me begin by saying, I am a huge fan of Queen and Freddie Mercury, so I enjoyed "FM, the Untold Story". This rule applies to all fans. I don't want to spoil things, and say much about the content of the documentary, because I'll let you discover it for yourself.

For those of you who aren't huge fans, you may need some convincing. There's no question that this is probably the most up to date documentary that details Freddie Mercury,- right from the beginning of his life in Africa, to growing up in India, to manhood in England, and from there on then, ultimately the champion of the rock world.

If you want a documentary on Queen, then watch Magical Years volumes I, II, and III. If you want to learn and understand more about Freddie Mercury, then this is a great place to start. He was a man with artistic visions, who fitted the times, who had ideas, and was most of all, able to articulate this to the world. He entertained, and did an excellent job of it.

The problem I found with this documentary was, that it kept jumping back and forward. One minute they were discussing life in India, the next minute you had clips of Freddie performing Opera. That in some way, lost it's flow. On top of that, there's not many full length clips of Freddie performing, and nor is there many clips of Freddie actually talking.

At moments the documentary gets a little lengthy, yet there are some touching moments nonetheless.
