‘T2: Trainspotting’

Trainspotting2_TSR_A4posterImmensely entertaining sequel – 20 years in the waiting – to the iconic Trainspotting.

Renton (Ewan McGregor – Star Wars, Moulin Rouge) is back having nicked £16,000 drugs money from his best mates at the end of the original. Sickboy (Jonny Lee Miller – TV’s Elementary) and Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer, Exodus) are angry – but get over it. But not Begbie (Robert Carlyle – The Full Monty, 28 Weeks Later). Unfortunately for Renton, the psychotic killer has a long memory – and just happens to have escaped from prison.

Stylish, thrilling, funny, sad, with director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) returning to the highs and lows of the first, injecting an inevitable maturity but without, sensibly, trying to compete or emulate that earlier achievement.
