Ecstasy 2012

Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy

Critics Consensus

The high never even achieves liftoff in Ecstasy, a tepid adaptation of Irvine Welsh's novel that will exhaust audiences' serotonin levels long before the credits roll.

  • Ecstasy is to ecstasy what Trainspotting was to heroin. Different times, different drugs, but the Scotland-set story of addiction and redemption is pretty much the same.

  • One gets the feeling this director doesn't think his target audience is all that smart.

    April 26, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film is supposed to be a transformational romance going from the love of ecstasy to the ecstasy of love but the two leads can't manage it any more than the director.

    April 20, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Not so much chemical romance as serious downer, it all seems so old.

    April 20, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There's referencing and then there's photocopying, and Ecstasy screams "toner low".

    April 19, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The movie's low-level chat about uppers (boy, you wouldn't give this movie a nickel for its small talk) does little to peddle Welsh's undoubted brilliance.
