Magnificent end climax
26 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I couln'd believe it, eventhough many reviewers said it. But it is true. The whole set up and the manner the final scene is executed in is something special. I would rate the ending (and not the movie) over "THE SIXTH SENSE" simply because "GENIUS" has more of a punch and production value.
