All Critics (16)

Filled with exquisite suspense, 'Prodigy' earns a place on my list of favorite contemporary thrillers.

September 13, 2018 | Full Review…

It's the work of filmmakers with obvious talent who just need to find a way to express it more clearly.

August 28, 2018 | Full Review…

A cat-and-mouse psychologist vs. child with "powers" thriller spoiled by having too many mice.

August 23, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Prodigy offers a compelling, if low-budget psychological thriller that's elevated by the lead performances and a twist on a classic sci-fi premise.

August 22, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The special effects were well done, especially considering the budget, but, as I've said before, no amount of special effects can make up for an underdeveloped script.

The film has a lean cast and a very intimate feel.
