Critic Reviews of "Monsters and Men"NPROctober 11, 2018
A lesser movie might weave these threads into a narrative that exploits real-world parallels - viral social media, athletes who take a knee, cops who close ranks. "Monsters And Men" doesn't pander or dismiss.Detroit NewsOctober 04, 2018
The film seems so freshly ripped from today's headlines that it feels like there's still more of the story to be told, which in a sense, there is.Entertainment WeeklySeptember 28, 2018
Green illuminates his characters with care and subtlety, allowing them to live inside shades of grey that a black-and-white world rarely allows.AV ClubSeptember 28, 2018
Green's graceful direction and keen ear for dialogue certainly make him a new filmmaker to watch, and it'll be fascinating to see what he does with a more focused narrative.Rolling StoneSeptember 28, 2018
John David Washington is at his forceful best in this racially-charged drama from debuting filmmaker Reinaldo Marcus Green that uses the perspective of three persons of color to examine the shooting of an unarmed black man by a white cop,NPRSeptember 27, 2018
Monsters and Men offers neither unalloyed despair nor implausible hope. It's about the way people of color live now, moving through the streets with passion, purpose and one eye on the rear-view mirror.Little White LiesJanuary 18, 2019
It starts an important discussion but doesn't dig deep enough.ScotsmanJanuary 17, 2019
Though the triptych structure makes the overall film feel a little uneven, the main characters' respective introspection feels truthful...Daily Mail (UK)January 17, 2019
Green hammers the audience with his message, instead of letting us find it ourselves. Nevertheless, this is a watchable and relevant film.Independent (UK)January 17, 2019
It is very well acted and deals with familiar material in a subtle and sensitive fashion.GuardianJanuary 17, 2019
There is humanity and complexity in this welcome movie, as well as muscular power and unreconciled anger.Empire MagazineJanuary 17, 2019
Both cinematic and literary, this is mature, textured work. Gently prodding at you rather than grabbing you by the throat, it is intentionally unexplosive, but lights a fire nevertheless.
