‘Murder Bury Win’ review: The game’s afoot

A game of chance?

Murder Bury Win follows three friends who have created the next board game sensation. At least it would be if they could get the game made. When Chris (Mikelen Walker), Adam (Erich Lane), and Barrett (Henry Alexander Kelly) have the chance to see their dream realized, things get out of control. Thankfully, their game experience may help them get out of the predicament.

The script is a dialogue heavy one with a focus on character and wit. Murder Bury Win is filled with great exchanges. The film is less about big moments and more about building the mystery. Murder Bury Win is also a smartly paced film. There is no downtime as things flow from one scene to the next. Much like playing a board game, the story is constantly moving forward, causing the audience to pay attention.

The cast is a small one that work well together. The nature of Murder Bury Win highlights the chemistry and strong performance of all the characters. All of them are likable making things that much more interesting. Though things move rapidly and the script is filled with humor, director Michael Lovan still makes sure to inject suspense into Murder Bury Win. From surprising deaths to the conflict between the would be game developers, the film keeps those watching on edge. 

After a great start, things run out of steam. (A common occurrence in even the best games.)  Murder Bury Win remains compelling throughout its entire runtime, but the plot slows down heading into the third act. The good thing is by this point, audiences will be fully involved by what happens to the three leads.

Murder Bury Win comes to on demand April 27
