In "T2 Trainspotting," the story continues 20 years later. First there was an opportunity…then there was a betrayal. Over the 20 years that have gone by, much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton (McGregor) returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud (Bremner) Sick Boy (Miller), and Begbie (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.

The 2160p HEVC/H.265 4K Ultra HD HDR-10 picture, filmed digital with Arri Alexa Mini and XT camera systems, was sourced from a master format Digital Intermediate at 2K (not 4K). As the 2K Digital Intermediate has been upconverted to 2160p, there is no real gain in native resolution. Still, the picture is satisfyingly bright, but the feel is digital. The color palette is nicely saturated throughout with strong primaries and natural fleshiness. Contrast is decent, but lighting effects are very obvious throughout with an unnatural, exaggerated presence, making the scenes overly bright and unnatural. Deep blacks are solid and shadow delineation is revealing of fine detail. Resolution is excellent with fine detail evident in facial features, beard stubble, hair, clothing and object textures. Overall, this is a punchy, bright and colorful presentation with excellent resolution. (Gary Reber)

The Dolby Atmos/Dolby TrueHD 7.1-channel soundtrack opens with a blast of high-intensity rock music, which energizes every channel. Such continues throughout intermediately. The music is the essence of the surround engagement as well as the Immersive Sound element, though, at times subtle and other times aggressive during the rock music sequences. An occasional sound effect is reproduced in the height channels, but otherwise, besides the music, they are absent any signal. Deep bass .1 LFE energy is associated with the music. The music is quite forward sounding and dynamic. Otherwise, the soundtrack is dialogue focused with dialects that are often difficult to understand, yet spatial integration is decent. (Gary Reber)
