5.0 out of 5 stars A gritty and dark piece of British prison drama, 29 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Starred Up [Blu-ray + UV Copy] (Blu-ray)
Starred up shows British film making of the highest quality. It is a dark, gritty, powerful and compelling piece of film making. It tells the story of a young and volatile offender Eric Love. He has been transferred to an adult prison, notorious for prisoning dangerous criminals. He acquaints with his father, who is serving a long term period in prison. Can a bonding be developed despite an unhappy history between the characters? There are testing and emotional scenes between the characters. Eric's character is engaging, as we try to understand the struggles and hardships the character experienced in life. The character volatile behaviour can be uncontrollable, as he struggles to interact with other inmates and viscously attacks. Can he learn to control his anger? Can he survive in the prison? Starred is well directed. It is atmospheric, as it recreates the life in a prison of dealing with dangerous prisoners. It is well directed and very well acted from the cast. The characters and very well written storyline deserve strong praise. The film contains plenty of swearing and violence scenes, thus prompting an 18 certificate. It shows film making of a high professional level. If you are into gritty dramas, then I would recommend Starred Up. The film straight away grabbed my attention, the moment it started.
