What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Paul Eksteen Going off the rails? More likely that it's a non-starter.
Paul Boekkooi 'Trainspotting' vermaaklik opgevolg.
Tomatometer T2 Trainspotting adds an intoxicating, emotionally resonant postscript to its classic predecessor, even without fully recapturing the original’s fresh, subversive thrill.
