Monkey Man Review: Dev Patel Delivers Knockout Action

We at When We Speak TV were lucky enough to be invited to a private screeening of Monkey Man at the AMC Madison Yards in Atlanta this past Tuesday, and this film packs one heck of a punch!

Monkey Man Review: Dev Patel Delivers Knockout Action

Monkey Man throws us into the brutal world of underground fight clubs, where a mysterious fighter known only as “Kid” (played by the phenomenal Dev Patel) throws down night after night, his face obscured by a gorilla mask. But beneath the rage and expertly delivered blows lies a simmering fire, fueled by a past shrouded in darkness. When the opportunity for revenge against those who wronged him arises, Kid is on a relentless mission of retribution, his fists and fury becoming the instruments of his will.

Now, here’s the thing that truly blew our minds: Dev Patel isn’t just the star of Monkey Man, he’s also the director! Yes, you read that right. Patel steps behind the camera for the first time and delivers a masterclass in action filmmaking. The fight scenes are nothing short of incredible – raw, visceral, and utterly captivating. It’s hard to believe this is a directorial debut, the choreography is so tight and the action flows with a balletic intensity.

We heard whispers that filming wasn’t exactly smooth sailing, with Patel facing a few hurdles during production. Well, let me tell you, whatever went wrong clearly didn’t affect the final product! Monkey Man is a triumph, a testament to Patel’s talent and vision.
