Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: T2 Trainspotting adds an intoxicating, emotionally resonant postscript to its classic predecessor, even without fully recapturing the original's fresh, subversive thrill.

Sequel is appealing; still full of drugs, sex, language.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that T2 Trainspotting is a sequel to the 1996 cult hit Trainspotting. Set 20 years later, it follows the same characters (including one played by Ewan McGregor), some of whom are still dealing with their heroin addictions (others are trying to kick the habit or using cocaine instead). Not surprisingly, then, there's lots of drug use, as well as drinking (a pot farm is also shown). Language is extremely strong, with many uses of "f--k," "c--t," and more. Sexual content is also graphic, including full-frontal nudity, oral sex, and scenes with sex toys. There are also scenes of prostitution, with various sex acts shown (in many positions). Violent sequences include a brutal fight and characters getting hit, smashed, and knocked out with blunt objects. There's a shootout, with a character's arm sliced open. And a character attempts suicide with a bag over his head, then vomits inside the bag. The movie seems aimed at the original's now-likely-middle-aged fans and is unlikely to convert many young viewers, although it may send them looking for the original.
