Max and Annie’s weekly couples game night gets a kicked up a notch when Max’s brother Brooks, returns to town and arranges his own murder mystery for the weekly meet in which one of the participants will be kidnapped. The gang thinks it’s all fun and games until they realise Brooks and his antics are not what they are playing out to be.
Game Night is an action packed black comedy written by Mark Perez and directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. Starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams in the leading roles backed up by, Kyle Chandler, Billy Magnussen, Lamorne Morris and Sharon Horgan to name a few.
An awesome concept overdone. The beginning of the film was hilarious but after the characters learn the reality of the situation they’re in the film loses its edge. If you were looking forward to seeing Game Night, prepare yourself for some farfetched entertainment.
