Kalpit Tandon’s review published on Letterboxd:
Proceed with caution, dark waters ahead.
Ever felt caged inside? As if all of the rage is brimming and boiling within? As if the frustration will blow your brains apart? As if fists and fights can grant you redemption? As if only violence can be your savior? As if only aggression can be your religion? As if blood can be your God?
Starred Up is brutal, belligerent and brilliant. Its confrontational nature may prove to be too hard for some viewers but those with hard stomachs, will get their requisite dues at the end.
