Directed by Danny Boyle and written by John Hodge, T2 is the long overdue sequel to the epic 1996 black British comedy Trainspotting. It reunites the original cast, with Ewan McGregor as Rent Boy, Ewen Bremner as Spud, Jonny Lee Miller as Sick Boy and Robert Carlyle as the psychopathic Franco Begbie, who together look to forge a new, equally unpleasant career in the vice industry. Fast-paced and at times hilariously funny, it’s also a sharp, hard-hitting commentary on the problems most cities face, and as before is backed by an excellent soundtrack.
