About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The passing of two decades can take the piss out of these era-defining Nineties rebels. Still, there's a hard-won wisdom at work here, as well as an aching sense of loss. .
Fresh: "T2" is not a great film, but its pleasures are great - and so rare and accomplished that it raises "T2" to a level approximating greatness.
Rotten: "T2 Trainspotting" wears out its welcome slowly, like a group of old men running out of stories to tell in an afternoon pub.
Fresh: The follow-up is as wistful as the first film was wild, which is another way of saying "T2" feels like a ghost of its former self.
We are all "tourist of our youth" at some point in life.
Great sequel; better new stand alone.
This is nothing much like the book, Porno. But it's great as is.
What you need it to be
If you loved the first one, and wanted to know what the characters are up to now, you won't be disappointed. It might not be what you wanted, but it's what makes sense. The humor and the horror are everywhere. A great place to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there. Watch it with a beer.
