An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps, but soon suspects that the spa's treatments are not what they seem.
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.

I watched the first and was impressed at the way it was filmed, the characters were at times hard to watch but compelling viewing. I could relate to their life style and was drawn in and made to care about the people I was watching. Enough about the original. This sequel was uncomfortable watching and not in a good way. We are given a blow by blow introduction the original cast. I was waiting throughout the movie to actually give a damn for anybody. It left me cold, and I was one waiting with anticipation for T2. I don't know if it was the director, the writing or the acting. Someones to blame. Even throughout the movie, the original soundtrack is hinted but nothing solid. Choose life... maybe not this sequel. Perhaps worth a watch, but do not have high expectations.
