The Opposite of Ecstasy
10 August 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A very sad excuse for a film.

This film took over 10 year to make and get released. What a waste of time! Over the last decade things have changed. Yet, even if this film had been released in 2002, it still would be too late for even that time.

Ecstasy might have been a little less painful to watch and done better for itself if it had been released in 1998. Instead, we here in 2012, are left watching what feels like a lost straight-to-DVD film from the 90's, that desperately tries to cash in on the success of Danny Boyle's 1996 masterpiece, Trainspotting.

The talentless director must have thought his career was made when he got the rights to adapt an Irvine Welsh novel. Little did he know that, a decade later, Irvine Welsh fans would want his head on a stick for ruining Welsh's original material.

There are shots where you can clearly see that the director is trying to copy shots from Trainspotting. Trainspotting is a classic in which every time you revisit the film, you are taken back to the 90's and thrown into the shoes of heroin addicts. Ecstasy lacks any original imagination, everything feels forced and watching the film is a perfect lesson in what not to do when making a film. In fact, the film is the exact opposite of it's title. It's an out-of-touch, uncomfortable viewing experience.
