"I can honestly say it surprised me in a good way. Every time I thought I knew what would happen next, it changed things up. Don't get me wrong, a lot of it was predictable, but it was fun. Some characters were really played up to give them a personality but then I felt like all of them seemed real. Well, the actual game night group that is. Even the creepy ones felt realistic, but were very hard to care for. Granted when they were neglected, I felt bad. I also believe it was incredibly well casted. Every actor did their part great. Most of the time, once game night started, I couldn't realize why everyone was such an idiot but they were really trying to play into the joke. So, while I did think they managed to craft character reactions and dialogue well, I also thought they made many moments unbelievable. The entire time, I just kept slapping my forehead out of bewilderment or nearly yelling, "How can they be so dumb?" Despite all that, it was enjoyable. My dad liked it, I did, and so did my brother. I laughed a few times, got mad at the characters, felt bad for them, and hoped for the best. To top matters off, that one-shot chase/escape scene was incredible. The amount of times they probably had to shoot that alone would be insane. And it's not short in the slightest. I'm assuming a drone did the videoing which made for some amazing angles. Loved it going through the balcony. Until then I thought they were overrunning a cameraman. I recommend this to anyone looking for a funny yet action packed movie. Think Adam Sandler meets a cheap James bond movie. Not the best one, but you will enjoy some part, even if you scream at them for being idiots. It's still a good time."
