T2 achieves an exceptional film-making coup, taking the characters from an iconic British movie released 21 years ago, and convincingly re-opens their stories, holding their tortured personalities up to fresh scrutiny half a lifetime later. The plot and storyline live on, in the context of middle age and life lived in the shadow of former struggles, disasters and escapes: a worthy sequel to a sacred original, respecting the rough edges while putting middle-aged flesh on the once raw ribcages of its unexpectedly sympathetic subjects.
