Magical Night
1 August 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

It was one amazing show both for the audience in the stadium (believe I was there) and audience at home watching it on TV. I think this ceremony had great/key moments that will be talked for years to come in the TV/Olympics history. Such as the Industrial Revolution, the power of the visual of it and the Olympic rings being forged was amazing. The Queen and Mr Bean scenes were brilliantly funny and greatly filmed, memorable TV moments. And the torch what an amazing idea putting it all together. The soundtrack of the ceremony was amazing and powerful as well.

For people who don't understand it... stop being lazy and pay the deserved attention to the ceremony, watch it again if you need and everything makes sense.

It was Britain at his best. In my opinion the best Olympics Opening Ceremony so far. Beijing was good but London was brilliant!
