5.0 out of 5 stars 12 extremely well documented, inspiring stories of the London 2012 Olympics
I saw this film at a preview screening, and wasn't too sure what to expect. If anything, I expected to relive excerpts of the Olympic games, nicely edited with an appropriate soundtrack. But...
From the first scene I was gripped. Prepare yourself to discover the real story of 12 young athletes competing for the first time. This is not just about winning; it's also...

3.0 out of 5 stars First, but not among equals
The official film of the London Olympics follows 12 gold-medal hopefuls on their journey from their homes through qualifying and build-up all the way to their moment on the biggest stage in world sport. All well and good but I'd have preferred lots of highlights across all sports personally. The BBC and C4 collections are well-worth buying if highlights are really what...

The official film of the London 2012 Olympic Games is the story of 14 (not 12) first time Olympians and their experiences in London last summer. The problem is squeezing the quart into the pint pot as the action switches from athlete to athlete and sport to sport, blink and you miss it. Still it is a wonderful memory of the Greatest Sporting Show on Earth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that great., 16 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After having read some of the reviews, I was looking forward to seeing this film. Unfortunately, there are no subtitles and I knew this when I purchased it but bought it anyway thinking it wouldn't be a problem. I just thought about how great the Olympics were to watch on TV and how it would be good to see segments about certain individuals. Well, without the subtitles it was difficult to follow a few of the competitors segments due to not being able to understand their English very well. I just don't understand how in this day and age that someone produces films or documentaries without subtitles! There are many individuals with diminished hearing capacity, myself included, and require or appreciate having the subtitles. Is it so costly or difficult to include subtitles?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential viewing for all fans of London 2012, 9 Mar. 2013

This review is from: First - The Official Film of the London 2012 Olympic Games [DVD] (DVD)
This is a top quality production - you can tell it was made by a "proper" film director. It is beautifully shot and very creative, giving a different perspective on the games - less obvious than the BBC highlights package. It really captures the spirit, excitement & atmosphere of the games. Well worth watching.
