As good as it could be, but far from great
“Porno” wasn’t a great Irvine Welsh book, but at least it introduced new characters and updated us on the whereabouts of the original Trainspotting crew. The “prequel” Skag Boys was to my mind much much better.
The problem is, Porno couldn’t really be filmed, as it concentrates on the filming of pornography. So instead, some elements (but not many) of it have been lifted to make T2, but most of T2 is “original”. It’s around 5% Porno if that.
However, I’d estimate that maybe 10 minutes in total of T2 is direct samples of the first film. Sure, have a bit of it in there, but we all know that T2 is a sequel of a film famous enough to have stuck in our memories. And I felt that constant referring back was after a while unnecessary, and intrusive.
There wasn’t a single scene in “T2” that could hold up to anything in the original. Not one.
Look, I’m glad I saw it, but it’s not something I’d really watch again more than once. Some films are classics because they are of their time: Trainspotting; Pulp Fiction; the Big Lebowski; Withnail and I. Trying to do a sequel for any of them is going to be a pointless exercise, you could never do one that holds a candle to the original.
What Boyle and co have tried to do in “T2” could have been much worse; but it couldn’t have been much better either. The past is the past, and we should leave it there.
confirmation that the era we live in is marked by bad taste
how can you do something like that?! transform a movie that was an introspect, a philosophy, a guide for so many 90’ers into a bad taste humour comedy?! i wasn’t t expecting much from a sequel, but come on! this is like comparing Lou Reed to 50 cent. it’s just a confirmation that we live in a shite era where not only are we incapable of making something good, worth watching, but we also destroy the memory of what was once good. same idea applies to music! really disappointed.
Well, at one time, you’ve got it, and then you lose it, and it’s gone forever.
