By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on May 16, 2013
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.

Terrific! My big disclaimer would have to be that this is shot and stars mostly Scotsman, there are times that it is very hard to understand, sepecially Billy Boyd (Lord of the Rings) he was incredibly hard to understand. The rest of the cast....magnificent. Adam Sinclair as Lloyd and Kristin Kreuk (Smallville) are outstanding. I don't want to tell you too much but Lloyd gets in a little over his head with his and his friends ecstasy use and owe the local drug boss mega money! Guess who doesn't have it! He has to keep resorting to being a drug mule between Edinburgh and Amsterdam for said drug lord.

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.

From Trainspotting to If You Liked School, You Will Love Work I have been a fan of Irvine Welsh for many years. Like most people I enjoyed Trainspotting as a movie, I even liked The Acid House.
But this? Ugh. It was like watching a high school play. Not sure who to blame as I am not a movie critic..the actors for not being believable? the director for the feel of the film? (I liked the shots around Edinburgh, but it felt like a shout out, say 'Honest, we filmed the on location!') or the screenplay writers for a dull tale?
Maybe I am getting old and having left the party scene behind a decades ago I just cannot relate.
