The Genius Club
One night to solve the world's problems!
For seven geniuses, they have no choice. A terrorist calls together a scientist, a seminary student, a pro baseball player, a professor, a casino owner, a painter, and a pizza delivery guy to attempt to solve the world's problems. Seven geniuses, with IQs over 200, are plucked from their lives on Christmas Eve to try to solve the world's problems in one night. If they fail, the world will come to an end. The group attempt to solve world hunger, war, cancer, terrorism, rush hour traffic, jerks, and finally the meaning of life. By morning, the group finds redemption in themselves and quite possible the world.
This Thriller is rated PG for thematic elements and some disturbing content.
The cast includes: Stephen Baldwin (Six: The Mark Unleashed), Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica TV series), Philip Moon (The Big Lebowski), Jack Scalia (Red Eye), Paula Jai Parker (Hustle & Flow), Carol Abney, and Huntley Ritter (We Are Marshall).
"Tense Apocalyptic Thriller!" Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
"We wanted to make an extremely thought-provoking film that reaches the very tip of mankinds problems and then comes back down. We wanted to make a very good 7-course-meal film, not another fast-food film that you forget two seconds after leaving the theater." -Director Tim Chey, RiverRain Productions
"One of the most thought-provoking films I have ever seen...ultimately this film makes one think about his or her view on God." - Edwin Carpenter, Christian Entertainment Review/Dove Foundation

What was the point of this movie? Why do producers think we like to watch stuff in darkness. I watched it on TBN on a flat screen HD and the sound was terrible as well as the picture quality. Why can't christians make a good movie? Search yourselves about this. Hollywood made Ben Hur (a fictional character) and the Christo figure was so wonderfully portrayed therein without a single preaching slur. Can someone tell me what was to be gained from this waste of time? Really I don't want to be facetious but I know I sound like I do. Really badly produced with zero content.

We all grow in life. Thank you for contributing to the knowledge and putting emphasis on the realities of God.Now it remains to the unique human being to put as much faith in believing the existence of God as in , in not to believe. Growing in grace only happens through God's word if u lack it you have so many questions and few answers. Jesus says i am the bread of life, the bread that if u eat u will have life. Jesus is also described as the word of God made flesh in John 1 vs 1-4 , 11-14. He continues to say abide in me and i in you. You get yourself a bible and start defining yourself the way Jesus describes a new creation born of God . The bible says what soever is born of God overcomes the world. Greater is he that will be in you than him in the world. Remember we all started as babies our parents very patient with us. Same to the knowledge of God when you are born again you are a baby in the knowledge of God, 1 John 2 vs 12-14 and 1 Corinthians 3 vs 1-3 explains the growth of a christian who now knows God and is in Christ. Don't beat yourself about failing to understand it all at once i know God is more patient in spiritual growth more than our parents who where patient in our physical growth. 1 Peter 3 vs 18 and 2 Peter 1 vs 2 shows us clearly what the holy spirit has just helped me share with you. Glory and praise be to to God because of the name of Jesus he has given us. Thank you Lord

This movie brings on a serious gut-check. It truly makes you question yourself & ponder several aspects of humanity. No, it isn't the most "pleasant" movie per se. It IS a *very* well-made film with a great cast that delivers! It will keep your mind & heart occupied as well as entertain you & keep you on the edge of your seat. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
[One other note: I watched this during the 2012 presidential race. I could not get rid of the feeling that EVERY politician should watch this. But, then...that's just me.]

This film raises many questions about life. What is the purpose of life?
Why does evil, corruption, tragedy, death, exist? The film's character of
the bible student was weak, when responding to the group with the answers. He stated the gospel, but it seemed to be absent of the power of the Holy Spirit. Over all the film, left a vacuum of the purpose of life. And ended with i am with the focus on man; humanism. There was no repentance fo sin, or anyone turning to Christ for salvation. And no stronge answer to the question why?
Romans Ch 3 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Mankind is in rebellion against God. James 4:1-4 wars, fighting, murder, desire of
wantonness, adulteresses, you lust and do not have, these come from
mans desire of sin. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the
gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The answer is Jesus Christ and His salvation He offers by faith to all
who would believe. Romans 3:22 The righteousness of God, through
faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. It would seem that
the film had another gospel it was preaching humanism.

Good thought provoking message, a little confusing a times though.

I really thought this film was going to be boring, but It was really brillant, Intelligence behind it & smarts. The beginning was slow & kind of boring, but it immediatly went good. I ended up falling asleep near the end. I hated I missed it. It came on last night on TBN. Another good film.

This was a great movie, and one that made you think. The acting was good and the story was a believable one with a very suprising ending. The movie kept your attention and I was very happy with it.
