An Action Movie Without a DEI Message?

What do you get when you take an Indian cultural myth of a masked vigilante, add a dash of 1990s graphic-novel, action-movie, with at least one John-Wick-style fight scene? Oh, and a bit of humor thrown in for good measure. You just might get the upcoming movie Monkey Man.

An Indian movie that is mostly in English, just might have a chance to do something at the US box office. And since it was not made by Hollywood, it actually has a chance to be good.

Just one, small ember can burn down everything.

This is the trailer for Monkey Man. Trailers almost always look good, but this one doesn't show a bit of Social Justice lurking in the corners. You can take 3 minutes to watch the trailer

The hat tip goes to Film Threat. Chris Gore says the story looks like a good Batman film. Dev Patel, of Slumdog Millionaire, stars and directs.
