Monkey Man18

Directed by Dev Patel | USA | 2024 | 2h 1m | Starring Dev Patel, Sharlto Copley, Pitobash, Vipin Sharma, Sikandar Kher

A young man makes a meagre living in an underground fight club, enduring nightly beatings from more celebrated fighters for money. After years of harbouring deep-seated anger, he devises a plan to infiltrate the inner circle of the city’s corrupt elite. As his childhood traumas resurface, he unleashes a relentless campaign of vengeance against the men who stripped him of everything. Dev Patel’s directorial debut is a brutal revenge thriller, filled with bone-crunching action and sociopolitical commentary.

Reviews

‘It’s a muscular, emotional, ferocious triumph of a movie, and when it’s over, you’ll want to go right back in and watch it all over again’
★★★★★
Matthew Jackson, The AV Club

‘The new Dev Patel is taking no prisoners in this slice of Mumbai mayhem, announcing himself as a filmmaker with possibly the most ferocious mainstream action movie since The Raid.’
★★★★

We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
