T2 Trainspotting (2017) - Review

Danny Boyle gets back on track. — *** MILD SPOILERS *** Danny Boyle's sequel to his 1996 smash hit, Trainspotting rolls into the station over 20 years after the original seared our retinas with it's often harsh, bleak, yet often blackly comic imagery and wowed our ears with its iconic soundtrack. Trainspotting was to the British film industry in the latter half of the '90s, what Oasis and Brit-Pop was to the UK music industry of the same period. It was a film that encapsulated a period in time having cleverly aimed its crosshairs at young people of that period with its ├╝ber cool style and tone in spite of some incredibly dark subject matter, that of the effects of heroin addiction. The film's marketing was incredibly eye-catching and unique, the orange and black character poster adorning many a teenage bedroom wall. Aside from some stunning song choices on what must rank as one of the all time great movie soundtracks, Trainspotting featured a razor sharp script and some fine performances from its then relatively young cast, many of whom went on to have fine careers, none more so than its star, Ewan McGregor.
