Fifth about The Seventh

T2 Trainspotting

T2 Trainspotting: what Danny Boyle’s sequel gained (compared to the original) in plot, it lost in character and zany energy. While the main characters have an evolution that feels organic, they result somewhat generic, common; the same can be said about the plot, however entertaining the whole is. The cast is in good shape and act well off each other: Ewen Bremner is the most interesting, but Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle reprise well their roles; Anjela Nedyalkova is a charming addition. While it does not match the original, this film still has an interesting mix of images (of many different stocks), thanks to cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle and editor Jon Harris. Once again, the song selection raises the energy and is a highlight.
