Overall it’s an absolutely outstanding film which we thoroughly enjoyed. All the boxes were ticked, the film was well balanced and provided a perfect example of how to adapt a novel. We are giving the film 10/10, a score that we don’t give out lightly, but it is well deserved. As with most of Irvine Welsh’s novels, the films tend to gain more of a cult classification. This time however we feel that it was a fantastic choice for a film and will hopefully lead to the mainstream exposure that it deserves.
