Critic Reviews for Ecstasy

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (2)

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.

November 22, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Not so much chemical romance as serious downer, it all seems so old.

April 20, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A drug-fueled landscape impacted by the Thatcher years, characterized by Scottish working class misery and massive unemployment feeding the underground drug economy. And reflecting Welsh's own conflicting personas as cult figure, pariah and antichrist.

January 4, 2013 | Full Review…

Ecstasy attempts to conjure the same sense of insanity, musical muscle, and impish wit, only to stumble repeatedly as it struggles to put on a dazzling sound and light show.

December 28, 2012 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Its fondness for the writer and the drug film genre may be evident; however neither can turn Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy into anything more than an inferior homage.

April 26, 2012 | Full Review…

In the end, ECSTASY wants to have it both ways -- drugs are celebrated at the beginning of the film, and condemned -- or at least the crime connected with them is - by the end.
