Monsters and Men (2018)
Critic Reviews for Monsters and Men
It's best when relying on its performers, as these men provide the type of inner debate that Monsters and Men too easily simplifies with its script.
There's an expert fluidity to the chain of events and their direct impact on three men of color just trying to live honest, productive lives.
For the people Green most hopes to engage, he hasn't given them quite enough to work with.
Despite its ambitions, "Monsters and Men" makes its weighty subject matter feels thin and slight.
Superbly acted and impactful, Monsters and Men is a film about having the difficult conversations even when the answers to our questions might not be readily available.
It's blunt with its message without being preachy, which helps it to be effective. Even when the movie leans into heavy-handedness, Green skillfully pulls us back. It's a daring task to take on as a first-time feature director and he does so admirably.
