A commendable movie
17 September 2017 | by (Vietnam) – See all my reviews

Bad Genius is well-balanced between entertaining and educational purposes, but still manages to be restrained and realistic. You can fell related to the characters if you used to be an Asian student. The young cast's performances are persuasive. It is a film made with sincere and intimacy. Some people don't like the ending but I find it satisfying.
