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.

In the Italian version, all the main characters (Renton, Sick Boy, Spud, Begbie, Diane, Gail) are dubbed by the same original dubbers of the first movie, although it's been 21 years. See more »

"We went for a piss in the old Leith Central Station. Me, Renton and Begbie. Place was empty, soon to be demolished. An old drunkard whom Begbie had been looking at, lurched up to us, wine bottle in his hand."
What're you up to, lads, eh? Trainspotting? In Leith Central?
"He says laughing. I noticed Begbie seemed strangely subdued and uncomfortable. It was only then I realised. The old wino was Begbie's father."

Like everyone else, I loved the original, who didn't? Maybe my mum. Which is exactly the idea of rock n roll. It was a cultural master piece, the music, fashion, the poster. Being a film poster designer at the time we were all in ore or how ground breaking & cool that poster was.
This is by no means a bad film. I just think it shouldn't have been made.
The constant nostalgia references are tedious. Begbie's character is a total parody, so much so that I cringed when ever he was on screen.
The soundtrack was easily forgettable too. And why oh why did they have to keep playing remixes of the old tracks? Again, tedious.
As for the choose speech, a total cringe festival.
They should have made more of the brothel idea.
Some films are best left as master pieces. This should have been left to the one film
