Game Night! (2018): Movie Review
Jim Pagiamtzis review: (contains spoilers)
"Amazing movie from the beginning all to the end. Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams and the amazing cast gel well together to create synergy and comedic laughter!
Game night is thrill ride that involves cofusion, cops, car chases and clever movie references all the way through. It makes a great experience to pay attention to catch it all.
There is a amazing house chase sequence that is so epic that you have to go and watch the movie just for that!
Just when you think you have figured it out another twist then turn happens! I hope Ed and Denzel watch this film because they may find it hilarious! There is even a amazing references to multiple movies throughout the film. I rate this a 9 out 10"
Bateman and McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks (Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents.
So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it’s all part of the game…right? But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this “game”—nor Brooks—are what they seem to be.
Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn.
With no rules, no points, and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun they’ve ever had…or game over.
