Beijing and Vancouver impressive……I was hoping to watch and get entertained by the British but I got Mr Bean! Awful. Danny Boyle what a waste of money!by fire danny7/27/2012 9:58:45 PM 5:58 AM
What was that all about, a huge lost oppertunity , I am British and was ashamed at this opening,they had an almost once in a lifetime to make this big, and it was a joke, Barcelona, Canada winter olimpics best for meby Richard7/27/2012 9:57:46 PM 5:57 AM
As a Londoner, I’m so disappointed. Most of it has just been one chaotic party without any harmony… and nothing stunning visually. Where’s the entertainment for the non British world that is watching this? Organizers should have warned everybody to study the history and culture of Britain, and be fluent in the English language, prior to the event.by barmiparmi7/27/2012 9:57:19 PM 5:57 AM
London opening ceremony team did not do their homework! It’s a complete failure. I did not understand the opening ceremony! Nor did I get any sense of what it really means to be British!by olympic hopeful7/27/2012 9:56:50 PM 5:56 AM
Danny Boyle! what’s with all those rap music, bed time monsters, back to the 80′s…..you could have done better!by upset7/27/2012 9:56:12 PM 5:56 AM

The absolute worst ceremony.. No culture whatsoever… Its been confirmed
This is utterly woeful. Where are the fireworks, drums, atmosphere?! It is truely bad. Seriously, all this hype and a BILLION people watching, Boyle has decided the best use of time to represent the UK on a global stage is Dizzy Rascal rapping in a house and two unknown people texting and going to a fake house party. I can only apologise to the rest of the world; i’m just as confused as you are as to what I just saw. Where are the different historical periods with kings, queens and castles? Where was the world wars that brought the whole world together where we all shared suffering? Where is the sporting element and parts that the rest of the whole world can understand?! Danny Boyle, you should be ashamed im surprised it never had an advert for Coka Cola half way through…
so bored i’m now drinking my son in law’s gin with diet coke ! no tonic in the house !by mike kiddle7/27/2012 9:51:48 PM 5:51 AM
i have to wait another 4 years to see hopefully a better opening ceremony! but Britain, you topped it…it’s not bad, its horrible! am sorry but am just being honest!by name it7/27/2012 9:39:42 PM 5:39 AM
I am from Asia and I was impressed with Vancouver and Beijing. London is messed up. what right does Danny Boyle have to have messed up what could possibly be one of the most anticipated show in the world. It could Britiain’s chance to brag!by Anonymous7/27/2012 9:32:01 PM 5:32 AM
I was hoping to get a glimpse of UK’s culture, history and to get inspired by the ceremony. But I got nonsense. by Pat7/27/2012 9:31:25 PM 5:31 AM
This is even worse than I could ever have imagined. What would be wrong with just welcoming the athletes and then going to bed like lm doing now. Thanks for making britain a laughing stock again!by Anonymous7/27/2012 9:31:12 PM 5:31 AM
This country should be ashamed of this dross put out to the world, it looks as if all the village am dram societies have been called in at the last minute to try and entertain a crowd. What an absolute waste of time and money.by Disgusted in England7/27/2012 9:30:09 PM

Look, if none of you are going to come out and say it then I will.
This is shamefully pathetic. Unquestionably the worst Opening Ceremonies for a wide variety of reasons in ‘decades’.
I”ve been flipping back from several channels to the opening ceremony and it’s not getting any better. Can I say Boring!!! Is it just me?by MB7/27/2012 9:28:55 PM 5:28 AM

I might be too early to judge but the ceremony I am seeing with all the pop culture music is pretty sad considering this is the OLYMPICS! I am not impressed…yet…sorryby KR7/27/2012 9:22:18 PM 5:22 AM
This opening ceremony is unbelievably bad. I can’t believe Danny Boyle actually is the mastermind behind this royal mess. totally boring. the only good (kinda) bits are the Queen/Bond and Mr. Bean. The opening is like a travelogue and then we get non-stop music videos. Olympics opening cermont is supposed to be spectacular and grand for the international audience. This has to be worst ever Olympics opening I’ve ever watched. What a huge yawn fest!!
I am watching a rock concert or what?by Andy7/27/2012 11:04:49 PM 7:04 AM

We'll make this look like a children's party in 4 years time - we're GREAT Britain - you don't hear anyone calling it "Great China" - although they do have that Great Wall...
The ONLY problem with the London opening was that fucking concert ending with the kiss and "ARTY IN MY HOUSE!!!!". What.The.Fuck.Was that?
The beginning, the meadow, BEAUTIFUL.
The industrial revolution, the construction of the rings, AWESOME.
The 007 and Mr. Bean, FUNNY (because they're well known British guys in popular culture).
Then...the concert...what the fuck?
The Chinese started with a bang (literally), and they continue to expand to their arts, their culture. Not bunch of teens.
Every minute it passed watching the London opening ceremony, I was thinking about chinese and greek ones.

Can I just say that I thought the London opening ceremony was great. We chose to show off our media because it's probably the biggest part of our country. You showed off your culture so why can't we? The last time we hosted the olympics, we had no money. This was our chance to really show off and I think we did it pretty well. It was just different because Bejjing was so hard to beat we had to go at it a completely different way. So less of the hate.

London Olympic opening ceremony is NOT shit, it's just that Chinese one was TOO great and will be permanent THE GREATEST ceremony in olympic history, you can't compare World champion with normal but good player, and say the latter is shit, people will realize how great the british one was in 2016 because it will show the average and normal opening ceremony,
not the great chiense one,

I was very disappointed with the London ceremony so I'm on youtube watching Beijing's, i don't think a make out session in front of billions is very classy, and Voldemort seriously? Thats just sad, and i don't think a rapper was the best choice. Sorry London, it was boring, very VERY cheesy, and it didn't keep my attention. if it wasn't for the talk show people explaining what was going on i would have been lost. it wasn't visual enough. Good luck trying to get the olympics there for a 4th time.

我对伦敦的开幕式很失望所以我跑来看北京的，花了数十亿做出来的东西太糟糕了，还有伏地魔，认真的吗？ 这真差劲，我不认为一场演唱会是个好主意。 对不起，伦敦，这太无聊了。非常非常差劲，完全不能吸引我的兴趣。如果不是那些脱口秀嘉宾，我连发生了什么都不知道。完全没有感官。好运吧，争取第四次奥运会。
face it. Chinese culture is more interesting anyway. Voldermot, marry poppins, etc is just silly to classify as "culture"
