Doesn't break any new ground with its subject matter, but the technical merits and the performances make it worth a watch.
Filled with exquisite suspense, 'Prodigy' earns a place on my list of favorite contemporary thrillers.
It's the work of filmmakers with obvious talent who just need to find a way to express it more clearly.
A cat-and-mouse psychologist vs. child with "powers" thriller spoiled by having too many mice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
'Prodigy' succeeds where big-budget superhero films cannot by focusing on meaningful character-level interactions.
