"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. Old friends are waiting: vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance."

Josephine Livingstone - The New Republic - Top Critic: ” Nothing hurts more than nostalgia. If you're prone to that particular emotion, T2 Trainspotting is going to hit you like a pint glass flung carelessly backward off a pub balcony: hard.”
Dave Calhoun - Time Out - Top Critic: “It has just enough of those two ingredients that made the first film such a gem: style and soul.”
Jason Solomons – TheWrap - Top Critic: ” In places, it's terrific, but it too often drags in a pool of its own despondency, a miserable and melancholy movie that almost looks a bit embarrassed to be so.”
