It was a little too long and slow...but a very interesting story!

Great movie. I would recommend it for adults only. Great acting.

Brillant! Kinnear was execeptional. I certainly believe he deserves an Oscar nomination for this role. Kinnear did an incredible job of allowing the audience to relate to the pain, angony and frustration of Dr. Kearns. This is a must see!!

It's also solidly constructed throughout and the acting is impeccable. The problem is that it just lumbers along for two solid hours, never rising to any significant emotional or philosophical heights. Full Review
The courtroom scenes emphasize the movie's potency as a David and Goliath saga. But the film's strength lies in its fact-based story of a wronged man turned crusader, played with vigor by Kinnear. Full Review
In short, Flash of Genius fails to make viewers care with any depth about the story it's telling. Full Review

Mr. Kinnear is fine; he's an actor we always like, and he gives a skillful, heartfelt performance. The problem is the material -- dramatic in the describing but painfully predictable in the telling. Full Review
The individual components of director Marc Abraham's David-and-Goliath drama are roundly unexceptional; the script, soft and teach-y; the performances, earnest. Full Review
