I thought Trainspotting was about homeless addicts who lived on a train and the lifestyle they had, as a result of their addiction. Instead, this film is more of a sick look at the horrible effects of heroin addiction in combination with the criminal silliness of a Guy Ritchie movie. And it is quite well done for what it is. There a lot more value here than you might expect.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover the main character was played by Ewan McGregor, and to see Kelly MacDonald show up because I really liked her performance in an episode from season four of Alias. I went through the whole movie thinking Jonny Lee Miller was actually Moritz Bleibtreu though. There is some excellent cinematography, although at times it is quite disgusting. I also liked some of the music tracks used throughout.
