Ok maybe the signs with each nation on it should be in the London 2012 font but they are only the signs.

The music seems to be making them walk fast which is good.

The flags and petals seem to be gathering on the hill.

Soooo this has been the Closing Ceremony , when do we get to the Opening????

Loving the show as a show, but this is (and I hate sounding like a teenage girl) soooo random.

I was waiting for an epic end to the *cultural show* - something that screamed *LONDON*, but we got a man sitting at a desk infront of a pc.

Yeah, all the segments are fantastic in their own right, but they have picked stuff from everywhere.

I've loved all the incidental moments, the parts that remind me why I view London as the Greatest City in the World and why I loved my time there so much, but Im not so sure.

You can definitely tell it's a ceremony designed by a film director.

The stadium looks stunning in *blue mode* , the design work is fantastic.

Liking the nice twist they have got for most of the dancing , it's not kitch but quite cool (like the men in top hat movements).

Beautiful depiction of the rings, but quite a low key start to the ceremony,

Nice Athens feel to the athletes march.

Agree Mattygs...Too random, didn't flow...had some funny bits but the parade of nations isn't buzzing...even Manchester 2002 CWGs were better!

Great moments in the Opening Ceremony - getting the Queen to 'act' in a short film was groundbreaking in itself. Great enactment of the Industrial Revolution - foundry of the Olympic Rings was the 'jaw-dropping' moment. It was never going to be a Beijing, but I actually think I will remember more moments from this ceremony.

i certainly enjoyed it more than the last one. Smile on face rather than mouth wide open.

I dont think anyone would be so blinded by patriotism. This may not even surpass some commonwealth or winter openings for me.
