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 (Ewan McGregor) 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.

In Sick Boys flat Renton and himself are talking about George Best when he played for Hibernian Football Club. When they slide on the pitch it is Tynecastle Park which is home to Heart of Midlothian, not Hibernian. See more »

I went in the cinema with an open mind as this is a sequel to an iconic film I have watched many a time over the years. It was great to see all the characters on the screen again, they have not lost their personalities, that I was pleased with. It had the same familiar gritty feel as the original but I found the film to be rather lacking, empty and a series of short uninteresting or non entertaining scenes. Not the constant flow of the original, not that i really expected that but it would have been an easier watch. Really not sure about the soundtrack, a mixed choice of tracks such as High Contrast 'Shotgun Mouthwash' which did not fit with the scenes and great well known tracks which did suit, you can't go wrong with a bit of Queen, Blondie or The Clash. No memorable or great events. Prior to the Trainspotting 2 title appearing on screen the film was very, very slow. Disappointing.
