In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
First there was an opportunity......then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.

In Sick Boy's flat Renton and himself are talking about George Best when he played for Hibernian Football Club. When they slide on the pitch it is Tynecastle Park which is home to Heart of Midlothian, not Hibernian. See more »
What are you gonna do?
I'm going to be the madame in Simon's bordello.
But really... What are you gonna do?
I don't know. I should go home. But... To go home with nothing? No qualification, no career, not even bringing money.
What's at home?
You know. Emotional attachment. That's all.

Like everyone else, I loved the original, who didn't? Maybe my mum. Which is exactly the idea of rock n roll. It was a cultural master piece, the music, fashion, the poster. Being a film poster designer at the time we were all in ore or how ground breaking & cool that poster was.
This is by no means a bad film. I just think it shouldn't have been made.
The constant nostalgia references are tedious. Begbie's character is a total parody, so much so that I cringed when ever he was on screen.
The soundtrack was easily forgettable too. And why oh why did they have to keep playing remixes of the old tracks? Again, tedious.
As for the choose speech, a total cringe festival.
They should have made more of the brothel idea.
Some films are best left as master pieces. This should have been left to the one film
