The Learning Curve may not offer anything new, but it has terrific vitality.

uncharacteristically ambitious aims for a film that otherwise looks like nothing more than cheap exploitation thriller

Good, flashy visuals, but writer/ director Eric Schwab still has a long way to go in applying a strong story with characters that matter.
