Trivia

The nuclear bomb scene was filmed in the basement where 'Fight Club' was filmed. The bomb could not be carried down to the basement, so the crew filmed the bomb sequence at the sound stage. See more »

very original story....
22 December 2006 | by deluxewamuSee all my reviews

The Genius Club definitely will not bore you. By far the most engrossing movie I've ever watched. I saw this on the big screen in Dallas and throughout most of this masterpiece I kept asking myself, "where is this movie going?"

I was looking over my shoulder and racking my brain throughout this movie trying to figure out how the game always managed to stay one step ahead of Tom Sizemore's character. Okay, so it asks you to accept some pretty wild premises and some fairly insane leaps of logic. Okay, so after you think about it, the suspense really has no sensible roots. The bottom line is that this movie is fun to watch.

For 2 hours The Genius Club takes your mind and twists it ruthlessly, contorting it in any way it so desires. Maybe this is why some didn't like it - the debates on the issues remains steady until the Bible student and the atheist (played marvelously by Stephen Baldwin) go head to head. As a Christian, I don't find it odd that people hate this film, even though it simply has a Christian character (they can't even allow 1 Christian character in a film without going berserk).

Jack Scalia is the perfect actor for this role, he played the President flawlessly. I love this movie, it's definitely going to turn heads when it comes out on DVD later.
