    Excellent camera work then the effects in the cycling. the horse jumping, shooting, decathlon, sailing... all events were shot showing dramatic scenes and shows the drama and excitement that sport provides. Soldiers competing and Nazi soldiers as Olympic volunteers was weird. Hitler is present in the film yet it's a different film to part one. the film really grew on me from a very good to an amazing film 9/10. Great music and it gets better as t film goes on.
