First there was an opportunity......then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.

Was it worth the wait?
In my opinion, oh yes. Screenwriter John Hodge has taken a few aspects of "Porno" and crafted them into a worthy sequel. Renton, Sick Boy (now "Simon"), Spud, and the psychopathic Begbie are all back, and it feels great to see them again. For fans of the original, watching "T2:Trainspotting" really is like catching up with old friends. Without spoiling the movie's plot, our four protagonists (plus some of the other characters from the first film) are back, and on a collision course with one another that can only end violently. Having ripped off Sick Boy and Begbie at the end of the first film, Ewan McGregor's Renton is back from Amsterdam and ready to fall back in with his old crowd. At the same time, Begbie escapes from prison, and when he learns that Renton is back in town, sets out for vengeance. Waiting for the characters to fulfill their story arcs will keep you on the edge of your seat. Accompanied by a thumping good soundtrack (though not quite the classic that the first movie's soundtrack was) "T2:Trainspotting" is a rollicking good time for fans of the original. In terms of the Blu-Ray release, sound and picture quality are great. The extras are a little bare-bones, with only a 30-minute "conversation with the actors/director" and commentary track in addition to the movie; it would be nice to see a fully-loaded edition somewhere further down the line. That's a minor quibble, though, and if you remember "Trainspotting" fondly, this one is well worth picking up, throwing in the Blu-Ray player, and catching up with the lovable scumbags.
