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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Much Franklin, 24 Dec 2013
I loved the film but I didn't like how it mostly revolved around Missy Franklin - I bought the film to see Chad le Clos and was pretty disappointed tbh

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully filmed & emotional !, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just a quick review to say that this dvd is a wonderful documentary-based look at the inspiring 2012 Olympics. It tracks the lives of around a dozen athletes from around the world, looking at their background, their training, their feelings and their emotions during the best Olympics ever. It contains superb cinematography and top quality music. Definitely worth a purchase and another brilliant reminder of London 2012.

This review is from: First - The Official Film of the London 2012 Olympic Games [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
What should be a great opportunity to tell the story of the roads to the Olympics converts into a mess where you don't have a clear narrative structure... Too bad...

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent way to remember games, 28 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good film with a focus on a around a dozen athletes.

Probably more a mood and music piece than the video diary that I expected.

The music accompanied thoughts from the athletes. I'd hoped for more of seeing the athletes behind the scenes in their preparations. Despite this the film was enjoyable and very well made. Just not quite the aspect I'd have preferred.
