Storyline

1990. The rave scene has arrived from Ibiza and warehouse parties are exploding across the UK bringing phenomenal wealth to the organisers. In Manchester, best mates Matt and Dylan are in their early 20's and long to be more than just punters. As the government moves to outlaw the scene, it's now or never and they quickly rise through the ranks to join the promoting elite. They are taken on a wild journey from the exclusive VIP rooms of London clubs to the outrageous parties in Ibiza super-villas and the hedonism of Amsterdam. It's everything they dreamed of and more. But as their success continues to grow, they attract a more dark and sinister world. Matt and Dylan start to drift apart as they are forced to question the dreams they set out to achieve and their once solid friendship. Written by Benchmark Films

Great era, miss them days
28 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't think they nailed the drug scene accurately, but its a cool film none the less.

I liked the music and sound track.

I liked the venues and different locations.

The plot was easy to follow and I didn't get bored at all.

Difficult to compete with the original Human Traffic movie but I collect clubbing movies so I can happily add this one to my movies shelf ;-)

I don't really have much more to say about it. i have no idea why I must write 10 lines of review.
