Critic Reviews for The Prodigies

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

The Prodigies pulls together a lot of familiar tropes from superhero movies without adding anything new or compelling to the genre.

Top Critic

Too violent for youngsters and so poorly written it won't engage an older audience, it seems to be targeted towards youthful nerds nursing overwhelming revenge fantasies.

You wouldn't expose a teenager to this, that's for sure, but the storytelling is so ham-handed that few adults would sit still for it.

Audience Reviews for The Prodigies

A French science fiction animation comes in the form of The Prodigies, from Antoine Charreyron.Coming in at just under 90 minutes, the story behind The Prodigies comes up light. The concept of the film starts off well, but things quickly become rushed as characters don't get enough buildup, all the while the story keeps pushing along; probably why the run time is as short as it is.Not exactly going for top notch graphics, this animation still delivers visually. The stylized action sequences are amusing and the more adult oriented material and violence help to hide the flaws in the writing.There isn't much to fault in the voice acting, although some of the major characters say very little when compared to others. For the most part it is Jeffrey Evan Thomas providing most of the dialogue.While The Prodigies does hold the potential to be a fantastic movie, it never fully matures into one. Still, it is a watchable animation for older audiences.
