The Genius Club

This film had so much potential.

Think of the plot: a madman is threatening to blow up a nuclear bomb in Washington D.C. unless a group of brilliant men and women can solve his riddles.

They have until sun-up.

Sounds like a nice thriller right?

All night the bag guy asks questions and if the group answers correctly, they win points. They have to earn so many points to stop the bomb.

The first mistake was casting Stephen Baldwin as one of the geniuses.

The second mistake was writing a script that has almost nothing to do with the plot.

Even Tom Sizemore as the villain couldn't save this low-budget fiasco.

So much promise with nowhere to go.
