before seeing this one. I felt very lost from the very beginning which began with Ewan McGregor returning home to Edinburgh after 20 years in Amsterdam. He visits all his buddies whom he stole from and they all want to beat the crap out of him. Johnny Lee Miller first, Spud second, and finally Robert Carlyle who wants to kill them all.
This film is a logical progression with a lot of grit but lacking the humor of T1. Everyone is all grown up (for smack heads) and struggling to make it. There are subtitles in the beginning so we can understand Robert Carlyle talking to his prison lawyer and fortunately we don't need much of that throughout the rest of the film. There is a mild romantic interest shared by Miller and McGregor (Anjela Nedyalkova) who ultimately leaves them.
I found this to be a downer but it has received above average ratings around pro circuit. I will have to seek out T1 in order to make perfect sense of T2.
Good luck to you on this one.
