T2: Trainspotting

Director Danny Boyle, screenwriter John Hodge, and the cast (including Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle) return to the works of Irvine Welsh, over 20 years since releasing British classic Trainspotting.

First there was an opportunity... then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.

"T2," for all its noise and neon, has little to say to fill it.

Dizzyingly meta, maddeningly broad, then oddly moving.

It has just enough of those two ingredients that made the first film such a gem: style and soul.

It has the same punchy energy, the same defiant pessimism, and there's nothing around like this. This sequel was a high-wire act, but Boyle has made it to the other side.

It feels so good you will find yourself going willingly for another hit.

Although there are plenty of moments of savage humour, the highs are just not quite so high any more. There's a melancholy maturity, however, which is satisfying in its own way.

Entertains and thrills. But most of all it makes you take a good hard look at yourself.

Long-awaited, much-delayed and disappointingly redundant...

T2 Trainspotting

T2 isn't nearly as good as the groundbreaking 1996 classic (I mean, how could it be?) But it's not shite either. Fans of the original Trainspotting are likely to enjoy this one. It's a melancholic film that balances the comedy and serious moments quite well. I laughed out loud a couple of times. The cast is great, reprising their roles as the characters...
