Audience Reviews for Bang-kah (Monga)

Doze Niu delivers a solid Taiwanese gangster film in Monga.Honestly, there is nothing out of the ordinary or anything extremely surprising with the story; however, it is well thought out and told. The film also employs a lengthy introduction to setup the main story and build some nice camaraderie between the main characters. It is nearly 20 minutes before the actual title is displayed on screen.Despite the gangster theme of the picture, there isn't a whole lot of intense scenes or edge of the seat events that take place. This film has a lot of emphasis on the drama and it also extends out to the 2 hour 20 minute mark, which is quite long. As for the brawls and street fights that take place, they are on the mild side when it comes to the violence and blood level.The acting and casting is noteworthy, which is a plus for a film that is high on the drama. Ching-Tien Juan really shines with his character and in a film full of male gang members Chia-yen Ko is a welcome relief to the eyes, although her involvement in one of the subplots isn't exactly substantial.Monga does have an elongated narrative, but it is still a successful gangster film out of Taiwan.

A clear portray that captures the Taiwanese gang culture. The acting was retarded, but the actions were cool, and the subplot of romance was quite lovely. the soundtrack was good too, effectively emphasized the scenes. Overall, not a bad film from Taiwan.
