Audience Reviews for Jack Brown Genius

It's kind of a cute story of a quirky inventor possessed by the spirit of an ancient monk, but the special effects are dated, the tone is oddly children's movie-esque, so I wasn't sure what to make of this once I was in the thick of it. There's a few funny bits, but for the most part it's pretty harmless and forgettable. Rental?
