Starred Up

Starred Up ★★★★½

I've kept a close eye on Jack O'Connell for years now, not to say I've been a fan since the first thing I saw him in. Even though I'm afraid he might get typecast just a little bit too often, he has given a spectacular performance... yet again.

I wish I could say more about the movie itself because, don't get me wrong, it is a very solid movie with very good acting, believable character development and all-around gritting and intense atmosphere sure to keep you on the edge of your seat even though, action-wise, not much actually happens but honestly I couldn't keep my eyes off O'Connell. Really strong performance - can't wait to see him in Unbroken.
