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.
Drama - This sequel to the 1996 cult favorite is not as brash nor as graphic
as the first film, but there's still plenty of rough content here,
from language to sex to drugs, this time cocaine over heroin. Fans
of the original film and the core four stars are the target audience
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; 4 S-words; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Sex with related nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights with blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, tobacco, cocaine, heroin. ACTION: One big fight. COMEDY: Banter, wisecracks, sight gags, all often dark.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average ... there's too little of value here to make it worth a trip to a theater. T2 has targeted a small audience and the group that thinks Boyle has again found greatness will be smaller still.
Roger EbertFull Review Average It is an absolute rehash, complete with visual cues, bits of dialogue, blasts of music and even snippets of clips from the original 1996 film woven into the modern-day action. ... the movie never really finds a cultural groove or a political voice.
NY PostFull Review Average Running everyone through similar (but sadder) high jinks, staging a road-show version of the first movie, even desperately replaying clips and musical cues from it. Twenty-one years later, Renton & Co. are cooking up leftovers
