Rating of

A dull biographical drama that should have had the zest and fun of similar nostalgia pieces such as MIDNIGHT IN PARIS. It is hampered by flat gray cinematography and by-the-numbers plotting. The able cast aren't bad but they're barely given anything interesting to do.

Rating of

Genius is a very slow paste, dull and a pretty forgettable film, but it's only worth watching just for Colin Firth and Jude Law. Those two can't do wrong.
