But when Brooks himself gets kidnapped (for real), can the group tell what’s real and what’s not?
To be honest after seeing the trailer I had my doubts about the movie’s plot. But on watching the actual film, I was impressed by how both suspense and comedy were woven in such a way that viewers will never be sure what’s happening.
Despite being a comedy, Game Night is filmed like an action thriller, where Characters often find themselves in unfortunate scenarios that bear serious consequences.
But at its core, Game Night is really about two siblings trying to reconnect after years of bad blood (And Let’s face it, having a sibling can be a nightmare). This deeper message helps justify and move much of the madness that occurs during this long night.We all have that one that makes us wish were the only child #GameNight Click To Tweet
Similar to most funny movies, some jokes in Game Night are hilarious while others invite crickets. And this gives the film an initial slow-paced feeling.
Not to mention that Certain scenes at the start of the film, appear unrealistic and out of place. But, as the plot progresses these scenes become clearer and contribute to the movie’s overarching endgame.
Like THE BIG SICK, Game Night appears to be another generic comedy. But if you give it a chance. You’ll realize it’s a brilliant film that shows even comedic movies can get dark.
