Youll either love it or hate it, nostalgia for those that know

I dont think this film would be my kind of thing if I could not relate to it. This film was out when I was in my teens, this was very close to my lifestyle at the time in reference to the drug culture.

The emotions and stages of drug use that are reflected here are so accurate, im not sure if thats the case today given the ever changing landscape and chemical composition of drugs but I can assure you it was spot on for the time and presented in a comical way. I am pleased those days are long behind me, though dont regret them at all. This film is iconic to many teens who lived through the late 90's as a teen.

If you can relate to that then you will find this film awesome, if not then you may strugle to understand it will just feel like a poorly writen and acted film.

Not as good as I remembered

I was introduced to this film by a flatmate back in 2002 and even then I remember thinking it felt a bit dated, but I enjoyed it all the same, mostly for *that* Howard Marks cameo. Fast forward almost twenty (what the hell) years and it hasn't aged well. From the tragically hip (but probably not actually trendy at the time) fashion to the sub-Trainspotting freeze frames and earnest, achingly middle-class asides to the camera, this film just tries too hard to be cool. And as we all know, that's just not cool. I mean, I suppose it could provide a valuable insight to people researching what film-makers thought was cool about the late-90's club scene, but they'd be better off going straight to the horse's mouth and just watching the years of footage of actual 90s raves, readily available on the world's most popular video streaming site. And be all the better entertained for it.

Very Funny!

1998's 'Human Traffic' is a laugh-a-minute British film, which takes a comical, but very accurate view of the British club scene and youth culture. The movie focuses on five young people in their early twenties, who live for the weekend so they can drink and take drugs. A very simple plot (if you are able to call it that), but this is a portrait of the 1990s, and a film that you can easily watch again and again. All of the characters are likeable and it is easy to identify with at least one of them.

With an all-star British cast, including a young Danny Dyer in his first movie appearance, and John Simm who is particularly good. 'Human Traffic' is an excellent feel-good film, complete with a perfect soundtrack of electric tunes, if you are able to remember the 1990s, you will love this. Grab a few drinks, a packet of smokes, maybe a group of mates, and enjoy it.

If you're really keen, then buy the [[ASIN:B00008V6WD Human Traffic Remixed [DVD] [1999]]] version instead, where you'll get the original film, plus a whopping 80 minutes of bonus features, including deleted scenes, two short films, and an extensive making-off featurette.

The only thing NOT to date is Danny dyers ongoing one dimensional excuse for "acting"
Verified purchase
Recently revisited this film as one of a plethora of club scene films claiming to be "of that time"
This was one of the worst & most frequently found in the discounted bargain bin of any DVD shop compared to others out there which remain quite watchable in part due to the lack of Danny Dyer (thank god).

Much of the irritation of this film is down to "can't act don't act" Dyer, I'd be more interested in an edition where he was edited out.
Dyer remains terrible to watch, which give this film a well deserved beating in the ratings & reviews stakes.
They should have given Morph (plastercine fella) or maybe give his mate Chad the role.

Still one of the best films of the 90s

A must see movie for those who are old enough to remember the 90s and the rave culture. John Simm and Danny Dyer make this movie.
