      Investing on launching a series that'd only sell to a niche consumer was a risk. Happy to see it succeed.

      It's good to be back with the household again! The story is far-fetched, but the charm and indulgence of DA makes it work. There is a little more sentimentality to it than the Seasons that gave birth to it, but it is warming to watch

      It's nice to watch. I watched it mainly for its Production Design, Costume Design and Cinematography.

      Maggie Smith steals every scene she is in. If you like english period pieces you will enjoy this. it doesnt go too deep but perhaps one needs to watch the mini series to really delve into the character development.

      The best you can say about a series as long as Downton Abbey is that you grow to care for the characters. The stories are complex but full of drama. Never short on the dramatic moments. A few lighter moments but they are rare. I can't say that there was on actor that disappointed. Very good casting, and the actor picked is perfect for the part. It's definitely a binge watching show. I've watched 6-7 episodes and then nothing for awhile.

      ) If you think you could waste 2 hours of your life watching some people argue over organising a dinner for the royals AND some homosexual promotion, be my guest. I'll ask for a refund for the disc. Absolutely unfit to run in my player.

      This Downton Abbey film was quite entertaining and good. I'm a fan of the series and was very happy to see this film. All the characters continue to entertain us with their drama and funny moments and I feel it stayed true to the series in every way. If you're a fan of the original series, then I highly recommend you watch this one.

The final, most unforgettable cast standout is Maggie Smith. As Downton Abbey's mistress, she emanates regal royalty authority to the film. Although "Downton Abbey's" undeniably unforgettable, it's a Downton-grade from TV series. It's Downton-roddely paced, lacking energetic momentum of the original series.

      If youre a Downtown fan, youll really enjoy this. I think the viewing pleasure is enhanced by knowing all the background and personalities already. But for someone whos not familiar with the show, they do a good job of some intertwined explaining- thevrepartee of the characters are fun, and the various plot lines keep your interest. And of course, the costuming, sets, vistas all immerse you.

      May 3, 2022

      As expected, beautifully produced piece with all the familiar faces, glamour, stunning costumes, and great locations. Storylines intriguing in the first half, but then they get rather cliched and superficial as though trying to give every character a small bite of the apple. Some good lines and pithy moments, but J Fellowes does always tend to add too many lines to an exchange that has already made its point.

      Boring. I had a difficult time keeping up with all the characters and who they were. Gay scenes were unnecessary in this story.
