TRAINSPOTTING delivers a wild mix of rebellious action and wicked humor. It's the story of four friends as they try to make it in the world on their own terms... and who end up planning the ultimate scam. Powered by an outstanding cast of stars including Ewan McGregor and Jonny Lee Miller and a high energy soundtrack. TRAINSPOTTING is spectacular, groundbreaking entertainment.

A movie based off the 1993 Irvine Welsh novel; a fantastic film about some messed up mates up to no good in Scotland. Brilliant actors and the soundtrack is tops. HEAVY.

Overrated. The characters appeal to thin social criticism to justify selfish forms of rebellion completely disproportionate to the situation and which are not at all constructive. This might be interesting if they learned something or grew over the course of the film but nobody really seems to learn anything or grow at all. The utter lack of character growth shows the myopic focus of the characters and the film on narcissistic young men, a focus which simultaneously lacks any understanding of the self-destructive behavior it depicts or the real consequences which tend to follow. There's some good, trippy cinematography, though, so it's not a complete waste of time.
