Story
Very relatable because you would definitely have been a student before! Plus you would know how some students score well all the time while others are just not cut out for studying. This movie portrayed the difficulties faced by both group of students well.

The most interesting part was the different ways these students cheated. Very novel yet nothing too outrageous. I would say that this is the main selling point of this movie.

I love how there's minimal romance in this! Sometimes you just got to get away from all the cheesy love stories.

Acting & Cast
All the main actors played their roles well. You could sense their desperation as students. If I wanted to be picky, I would say that Non who played Bank was a teeny bit awkward at certain angry scenes but other than that, everyone acted well. The casting was also good. The smarter students looked nerdy enough, the playful and rich kids certainly fit their roles.

Overall, I would recommend this movie to others. While it is a youthful movie, I believe it will appeal to adults as well!

Juvenile drama and a very well-crafted social metaphor.
"Bad  Genius" is a lot of fun, filled with moments of real tension, as if we  were watching a live crime robbery or an engaging thriller. As  we all know, the winner of the Thai national box office is a film about  how a group of high school students tries to cheat the school exams and  eventually the admission test to the international university. The chemistry among relative newcomers is simply incredible.
The film seamlessly blends comedy, emotional, thrilling situations and a well-meaning message in history. Being  able to portray an exam cheating situation as a bank robbery in  practice, causing each movement and sound in tension to be in slow  motion. The creative use of playing piano and innovative techniques of modern age and traditional cheating methods are a joy to watch. In  short, it simply works because it gives young actors a lot of focus,  space to play with and a story that blends perfectly fresh and  satisfying.
