George Reviews Stuff – T2: Trainspotting

Well this is a dilemma and probably won’t make much sense but firstly thank god Danny Boyle came back to direct this; in anyone else’s hands it could have been an absolute disaster. However, that’s not saying he’s delivered a masterpiece here, his love for both the source material and the original film shines through. But unfortunately it’s also that love for the original film that ironically holds T2 back from becoming its own beast entirely.

A few less references (as good as it was to see her, there was no need for Kelly Mcdonald to be in this) and a tighter, more focused script and what an incredible double pairing these films could have turned out to be.
