Editorial Reviews

Product Description

From the mind of Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) comes a pulse-pounding thriller set against the backdrop of Scotland's drug-fueled dance scene. When free-spirited Lloyd gets in deep with the local kingpin after a drug deal gone bad, he decides to cut ties and kick old habits for the woman he loves. But when his old business partners come around looking to settle the score, Lloyd must do whatever it takes to keep her safe, even if that means getting back in the game and risking it all to get even. Rob Heydon directs this electrifying adaptation of the best-selling novel featuring Adam Sinclair (To End All Wars), Kristin Kreuk (Smallville), and Billy Boyd (The Lord of the Rings).

Special Features

  • Features music from Paul Oakenfold, Coldplay and Grammy® nominee DJ Tiesto

Format: DVD
The film adaptation of Irvine Welsh's "Trainspotting," by future Oscar winner Danny Boyle, is as near-perfect as you're likely to get in interpreting the frenetic works (and world) of the Scottish novelist. "Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy" obviously wants you to keep the author's reputation foremost in your thoughts as his name is actually a part of the title. Adapted from the short "The Undefeated" in Welsh's 1996 collection "Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance," this is a movie that both benefits from Welsh's name and is harmed by it. I had looked forward to seeing director Rob Heydon's interpretation of "Ecstasy" since its premiere in 2011. I had heard many divisive comments prior to seeing the film. Those familiar with Welsh's piece seemed largely dissatisfied and destroyed the movie while those unfamiliar with Welsh seemed a bit more effusive in their praise. I kept an open mind, however, and my reaction skirts the middle ground. The movie, in my estimation, is a perfectly reasonably entertainment. It is neither a disaster or a masterpiece on its own terms as a film. It is not, however, something that I'm likely to revisit with frequency on DVD (as I have Trainspotting).

The movie is centered around the drug fueled antics of low level Scottish dealers. Lloyd (Adam Sinclair) is the kingpin in a group of friends who see life as a series of scores, hook-ups, and dance parties. Despite being a drug runner (hey, it's just Ecstasy), Lloyd is depicted as a good guy that has simply fallen into some bad choices. However, this bad boy just might find salvation in the loving arms of Kristin Kreuk (TV's Smallville and Beauty and the Beast). And why not? This perfectly respectable girl seems to fall instantly in love with a lowlife she meets while high.

Though I have read this movie was trying to be another "Trainspotting" is that such a bad thing? I spent under $10 for the DVD and loved it. Well worth the $. the film captured the era pretty well and kept my interest and that says a lot as I am ADD like everyone in this modern world.

great film very close to real life and a insight to the clubbing scene also an amazing soundtrack in all a very great film well worth the money. ... a very competent and entertaining rendition of Mr Welsh's most positive work. Love the club sequences.
