Really boring and dissapointing show. I expected it to be outstandind, but those collection of prerecorded videos seemed more appropiate to the Eurovision song contest than for the olympics... And the way the pushed the athletes to literary run over the stadium, and finish their parade as soon as possible was the lest olympic detail in an opening ceremony ever. I felt sorry for the UK.


perfect. all 'GB Team' people lived it. if you didn't, take up serious sport, then you might understand it


The ceremony was confusing, boring and lacked imagination. It was like a badly planned school show. How could anyone like it? What does Rowan Atkinson, James Bond, the Queen, McCartney, social media, and hip-hop have to do with the spirit and essence of the Olympic Games? And if the above was an attempt to portray English history it was a huge failure as it had no coherence all together. 27 million pounds for that? I think that humanity has the responsibility to be a bit more serious in such cases and especially in times like these.


Witty, confident yet self-deprecating, irreverent yet appreciative, it was a finely-tuned tour d'imagination that came in cheap at £27m. Well done Danny Boyle and all concerned!


I loved it all! It was very British, eccentric and funny, eclectic and inclusive.


Shows how we all differ, i was amazed! as a fan of boyle, i totally got what he was doing, i felt his meaning and deepness, i guess it will be missed by most people who wanted a X factor kind of show.....well done Danny, i know where you are coming from and loved every second.


Ughghghg.... Really disjointed. If only the queen had indeed parachuted!


Dull , i slept in the middle .There was nothing impressive .Was like a bubble, a soap opera .

Too much boring . The Bejing opening ceremony was poetic . This one was Bollywood.Disappointed


Not impressed. Too much going on. Confusing. I would have preferred a single strong message. Best bit for me was the young Welsh choir at the beginning.
