5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating adaptation!!
I live in Michigan, saw the film in Toronto and could not wait for the US release of the DVD and bought the UK version! I cant wait for the US release of the DVD so I can watch it on my TV and not just my laptop!

The acting was real, genuine and at times heartbreaking. Adam Sinclair and Kristin Kruek were beautiful together as Lloyd and Heather and Billy Boyd...

If you liked 'Trainspotting' and 'Acid House' then you'll be disappointed with this film...poor acting and the accents are all over the shop! Stick with the book folks...

I live in Michigan, saw the film in Toronto and could not wait for the US release of the DVD and bought the UK version! I cant wait for the US release of the DVD so I can watch it on my TV and not just my laptop!

The acting was real, genuine and at times heartbreaking. Adam Sinclair and Kristin Kruek were beautiful together as Lloyd and Heather and Billy Boyd as Woodsy stole every scene. His hospital scenes were incredible! Rob Heydon's take on this Irvine Welsh novel was perfect, beautifully shot with spectacular views of Scotland. Well done!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The class A movie of 2012, 27 Aug 2012
This review is from: Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy [DVD] (DVD)
I very nearly didn't buy "Ecstasy" as I doubted it would stand alongside the likes of "Trainspotting" however I'm very glad I made the purchase. Produced and directed by Rob Heydon, this is definitely another Welsh adaptation worth watching.

Guess I was expecting a new version of Trainspotting, wasn't going to happen, my mistake, but couldn't get into it at all
Looking forward to watching Filth.

... a very competent and entertaining rendition of Mr Welsh's most positive work. Love the club sequences and has a nice soundtrack too.

I love this movie, well performed by the actors, and well directed. Is a fan of Billy Boyd and he is amazing in it. I pre-ordered it and I'm so glad I did. If you enjoy, great acting and directing see it!
