“What T2 lacks in trauma it makes up for in an exhausted spiritual malaise that knocked this writer for a loop. I doubt the film will work nearly as well for anyone who didn’t have a poster of these guys hanging on their dorm room wall, but it’s viscerally deflating to see how these icons of the ‘Cool Britannia’ generation grew up to be such sad-sack losers.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 03/23/2017

“This is a film of dazzling, garish colors that bops to an electric New Wave beat. The whole thing throbs with such overheated sexual energy that about halfway through, the story stops dead for a montage where everybody drops what they’re doing and gets it on. More movies should do this. It’s like an intermission, but better.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 03/09/2017
