A thrilling, touching and heartwarming journey
8 September 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a very bright teenage girl, who aces in all her tests. She soon finds a way to make a fortune by selling answers of tests in schools. She and her team comes up with the ultimate cheat - the university entrance exam that takes place in Sydney.

"Bad Genius" is a really fun film to watch. Viewers can easily relate to the story because everyone has taken exam and everyone wanted to score the maximum marks. The things people would do to get a good result in Asia is astonishing, so I actually think the plot is believable! The cheats are really thrilling, and time after time there are events that make your heart race. There is a lot of comedy, friendship, loyalty and morality in the film as well, making it a very good plot. The lead actress, Lynn, does her role very well. I am so glad that I had a chance to watch this thrilling, touching and heartwarming journey.
