  • 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.

    Nov 19, 2008 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • ...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.

    Jan 18, 2008 | Rating: 77/100
  • a low-budget wannabe thriller that's anything but smart.
