Set in the Wanhua district of Taipei in the 1980s, Monga is a film about the lives of Taiwanese gangsters. The plot primarily centers around the lives of five young gangsters, documenting their days in high school to their venture into adulthood whilst exploring themes like friendship and loyalty. The plot is interesting and dramatic and the characters are well-developed. My only critique is that some of the scenes and the dialogue can feel a bit dragged out and repetitive. But overall, it is quite a polished production that is well-acted by its young cast and the film does a great job developing these characters and in telling the compelling story that these kids go through.
