What are your opinions about the DVD "Queen: Under Review 1946-1991 - The Freddie Mercury Story (2007)?" I've considered purchasing it, but haven't as I'm skeptical of its quality. I already own the "Lover of Life Singer of Songs" DVD which contains "The Untold Story" anyway, so would it be worth it? It must be said, however, that I do own and enjoy both Queen Under Review DVDs by the same guys who filmed this relatively new Freddie Mercury documentary.

Here's a link to the item for all those interested:

Thanks for taking notice.

My delightful brother got this for me for Christmas, but, I've yet to find the time to sit down and watch it.
I am anxious to read, here, what those who HAVE watched it think.

Watched both of the previous "Queen reviews" dvd's (1973-1980 & 1980-1991). They were pretty good. Not the best documentaries i've seen so far, but quite enjoyable though.

But if you're looking for some kind of extra-unique material you won't find it. Just a couple of medium quality snippets filled with hell lot of official cuts and, finally, blended with the critic review by some people (anyway, competent ones), who have almost none connection with the band itself.

All in all, - it is worth buying, 99% percent you will like it))

Well...I just bought the thing and it sucks. lol haha It wasn't at all organized. Everything was stretched out (the quality/pictures of it) It was terrible and I'm thinking about returning it to the store because it's a mess. I mean, it just wasn't fluent-it didn't flow. Not very well put together. It wasn't at all like the other Under Reviews...definitely not worth buying.
