Painfully Dull, What a Waste!
23 November 2012 | by mrjamiejones176335See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to seeing this film having enjoyed a tremendous Olyimpics across the summer. I hoped this film would be a fun reminder of everything great about the success Team GB had on our home ground. How wrong and gutted was I. This film is so boring the structure is all over the place. It's like the director has no idea what she actually wants to say with the film. Somehow she has managed edit the spirit of the games completely out of the story and created an entirely boring and pretentious film. People going to see this hoping to be reminded of what a great achievement the games were will be hugely disappointed....spend your money on the BBC bluray of the coverage it will be a far more pleasurable experience.

They decided to call this First they might as well have called it Last as this is where it belongs in the world ranking of sports documentaries. I will certainly not be wasting my time or money going to see any of this director's future work if anyone is dumb enough to finance it.
