Critics Consensus: Well-acted and visually stylish, Monsters and Men tells its timely story with enough compassion and complexity to make up for occasionally uneven execution.

Superb race-relations drama has language, tension.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Monsters and Men is a serious, complex drama about strained relations between police and urban minority communities. Expect some strong language, including "f--k," "s--t," the "N" word, and more. Though no violence is shown on-screen, a shooting is heard repeatedly and is the movie's central plot point. Cigarettes and a packet of drugs are seen, but they aren't used obviously. A couple is shown in bed, presumably after having sex. The outstanding young cast includes John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman), Kelvin Harrison Jr. (It Comes at Night), and Anthony Ramos and Jasmine Cephas Jones of Broadway's Hamilton. Central characters act courageously, and the film brings up important, timely issues.
