It's as if Aaron Sorkin wrote a caper flick set in high school, and it's as much clever fun as that sounds.
The film flourishes through its simple narrative and taut editing.
Offers subtle yet stinging insight into Thailand's class inequalities and corrupt school system.
It's dastardly clever and entirely plausible, although the end does push the boundaries to the limit.
Bad Genius is a refreshing attempt at the heist genre that tackles one of the most mundane and boring tasks on planet Earth and makes a fantastically entertaining film out of it.
...a hugely effective heist film that masquerades as a teen drama.
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.
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.
A highly entertaining and surprisingly tense Thai caper revolving around a quartet of students who devise a test-cheating scheme for profit.
Sharply directed/edited look at the high cost of cheating, and while its action is far removed from life & death situations it delivers tense and highly suspenseful sequences.
Ocean's Eleven meets The Breakfast Club in Bad Genius...This bitingly brilliant teen movie is deliciously clever and laugh-out-loud funny.
All of it works. None of it is wasted. Bad Genius is literally flawless.
Otherwise excellent, the last few minutes were a drag.
