Monkey Man


“Monkey Man” is a gritty action thriller that packs a punch with intense fight scenes, copious amounts of blood, and a compelling storyline revolving around themes of family love, justice, and revenge. It features a standout performance by its lead actor, director, and producer, Dev Patel – what a looker! Additionally, the local audience will be pleasantly surprised to recognise the South African accent of its very own South African supporting actor, Sharlto Copley, throughout the performance.

In Monkey Man, Patel nailed it as both director and action hero. The movie proves he’s got what it takes in the action genre, and he adds his own cool vibe to it.

The plot follows the journey of a determined protagonist seeking retribution for the injustice inflicted upon his family and forest village.

What sets “Monkey Man” apart from the typical action thriller is its depth of character and emotional resonance. Beneath the explosive fight sequences lies a poignant exploration of the bonds between a mother and her child, as well as the extent of human determination in seeking redemption and closure.

The action choreography is top-notch, with each fight scene choreographed to perfection, showcasing Dev Patel’s martial arts prowess and raw intensity. From bone-crunching hand-to-hand combat to high-octane chase sequences, the film keeps viewers on the edge of their seats throughout.

While “Monkey Man” may not be for the faint-hearted due to its graphic violence and intense action, it ultimately proves to be a satisfying watch for fans of the genre. The movie strikes a balance between adrenaline-pumping thrills and a thought-provoking narrative, making it a standout entry in the action genre.

Overall, “Monkey Man” is a testament to the power of a son’s love and the resilience of the human spirit. It’s a rollercoaster ride of emotions and adrenaline that will leave audiences captivated from start to finish.
