The Worlds Biggest Asian Star
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.
I thoroughly enjoyed this concert. If you want something a little more polished, view "Rock in Rio" or "Live in Wembley". This concert certainly demonstrates the dynamic vocals of Freddie Mercury aided by a brilliant band consisting of Roger Taylor, Brian May, and John Deacon.
A Great Tribute
Not many have sold out Wembley Stadium for a tribute concert. This is a concert in memory of a dynamic performer of the name Farok Bulsara (otherwise known as Freddie Mercury). Freddie is the greatest Asian star the world has seen. On top of that, he is one the greatest voices in rock history. The concert is filled with lots of treats. If you're a fan of any of the artists featured on this video, then go out and rent it, you won't be dissappointed. For Queen fans, it's a "must-view" video. What more can I say, it's a truly spectacular event.
