It's as if Aaron Sorkin wrote a caper flick set in high school, and it's as much clever fun as that sounds.

...a hugely effective heist film that masquerades as a teen drama.

October 27, 2017 | Rating: 15/20 | Full Review…

It's undeniably captivating but [it] also unfurls the dangers of filmmaking religiously devoted to forward momentum, accelerating too fast to carry the weight of its moral and socioeconomic implications, it loses gravity trying to stay light on its feet.

October 23, 2017 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Bad Genius is a gloriously preposterous work that is one of the most unique (and certainly one of the most enjoyable) heist movies in recent memory.
