Review: Monsters of Man

Surprise! A review of Monsters of Man, a science fiction action thriller included with Prime Video.

I say surprise because the movie surprised me with a good story, solid acting, and sound production values.

Monsters of Man, directed by Mark Toia, was selected by Darling Hubby for recent weekend viewing.

I had a book queued up on my Kindle to read since the movie sounded like so many other killer robot films.

To my surprise, the story caught me. Of course, veteran actor Neal McDonough stars as the villain of this story.

He's superb in everything. (I wish he could get a continuing series role on a streaming service because he is such a good actor.)

Accompanied by Brett Tutor, Jose RoseteDavid Haverty, Paul Haapaniemi, and an ensemble cast of nearly a dozen other actors, the film will definitely hold your interest. 

About Monsters of Man

A robotics company teams up with a corrupt CIA agent (Neal McDonough) conducting an illegal, unsanctioned military operation in which 4 prototype robots are dropped into a suspected drug manufacturing camp in the Golden triangle.

Unfortunately, 6 doctors volunteering their services there are witnesses to the brutal slaughter of a nearby village and are forced into a deadly game of cat and mouse as they become the new targets.

Two Thumbs Up

Brett Tutor as Mason is a likable hero with believable survival skills. 

Some of the people in the doctors' group are irritating in what has come to be clichéd behavior of people caught in perilous situations, i.e., acting in ways that make no sense, constant fighting among each other, etc.

Monsters of Man is free for Amazon Prime subscribers. If you're not a subscriber, you can either rent or buy the movie from Amazon

Takeaway Truth

I think this is a movie you'll enjoy especially if you like science fiction action thrillers with robots running amuck.
