Critic Reviews for Prodigy

All Critics (11)

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

March 30, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This low-budget science-fiction film has an ambition that exceeds its reach, and has nothing to surprise the self-respecting geek a movie like this one is aimed at.

March 22, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A terrifically tense sci-fi thriller, Prodigy makes effective use of its intimate setting to make for an engrossing genre piece filled with depth and suspense.

Haughey and Vidal use supernatural powers-the mechanics of which are stunning considering the low budget-to show how monsters are often created [via] the act of being hunted.

March 15, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

It's about as heart-warming as a rabid alligator and twice as scary, but as psychological dramas go it ticks all the right boxes.

March 15, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

'Prodigy' succeeds where big-budget superhero films cannot by focusing on meaningful character-level interactions.
