Smart characters don't always mean smart movies, and The Genius Club is no exception.

Most of the movie is surprisingly effective at feeding the audience a liberal critique of capitalism, cleverly disguised as a thriller.

The Genius Club is a stultifying, static movie about a group of people trapped in a dingy boardroom yelling at one another and their tormentor.

A laughable mess of pretentious rambling and spiritual shallowness... gloriously, stupendously, exceptionally awful.

...plagued by uneven writing and acting ... but The Genius Club isn't a proselytizing tract or a preachment to the choir. It's an honest to gosh real movie.

a low-budget wannabe thriller that's anything but smart.

A pretentious gabfest...When one of the characters opines toward the close, 'This has been a complete waste of time,' you'll be hard pressed not to nod in agreement.
