'Monkey Man' Movie Review

Dev Patel makes ambitious directing debut with the violent ‘Monkey Man’. The movie showcases a confident and energized Dev Patel both behind and in front of the camera in a ferocious, culturally-charged tale of revenge.

While we may know Dev Patel best from his 2008 film debut in ‘Slumdog Millionaire,’ he has quietly compiled a collection of performances since then that have incorporated literary classics (‘The Personal History of David Copperfield’), surreal fantasies (‘The Green Knight’), and tense true-life stories (‘Hotel Mumbai’). But now Patel has stepped it up several notches with ‘Monkey Man,’ a relentless and brutal action thriller that finds the young actor behind the camera for the first time as director.
