Just because the original "Trainspotting" was nihilistic, doesn't give "T2" the right to be so utterly pointless. A lot of effort was put into beautifully filming this ugly sequel.

"Trainspotting 2" is creative and absolutely bonkers coming from Danny Boyle. The whole thing is on speed, never losing heat. While not having a straight forward narrative that many will lose interest in. A sequel to a already brilliant movie seems unneeded, but I was along with the ride and enjoyed every minute of it. Good to see the old gang again. The soundtrack and ending was amazing by the way. It's the highlight of the film for me.

Attempting a sequel to a zeitgeist film will always be a risky business but to those who grew up with the original, T2 provides an interesting insight into the cultural differences between the tension between the raw energy and optimism of the 1990's and the nostalgia-obsessed present. Essentially the film is the story of people who feel that all of their potential has somehow passed them by and are now cast adrift in Brexit Britain, and Danny Boyle uses the no-nonsense, "live in the now" pragmatism of young Bulgarian Veronica to throw this into sharp relief.
