"Scabrous, brutal and hip, Trainspotting is a "Clockwork Orange" for the '90s. "
- Staff, Variety
"Trainspotting is a singular sensation, a visionary knockout spiked with insight, wild invention and outrageous wit."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Trainspotting, buoyed by a great Brit Pop soundtrack and Brian Tufano's agile cinematography, captures the stoned-out, gut-churning experience of hardcore addiction with hallucinogenic acuity."
- Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Trainspotting is a searing pop-art portrait of a lost generation blowing out its brains. As they rail, chuckle, shout and dive into darkness, you're trapped yourself between a bellylaugh and a scream."
- Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"It would be hard to imagine a movie about drugs, depravity, and all-around bad behavior more electrifying than Trainspotting."
- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Exuberant and pitiless, profane yet eloquent, flush with the ability to create laughter out of unspeakable situations, Trainspotting is a drop-dead look at a dead-end lifestyle that has all the strength of its considerable contradictions."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
