Storyline

"The Prodigy" tells the story of small-time enforcer Truman Fisher's vicious conflict with a sadistic assassin who has chosen the unwilling Truman to be his successor. The assassin, who goes by the alias Rains and whose exploits have become the source of legend among Truman's underworld colleagues, drives Truman, through the pressure of constant violence and grief, to understand his own capacity for both bloodshed and compassion. Ultimately this reveals to Truman that he as with all of us, must find our place in this world or as Rains would say "our place in this grand design." This action begins quickly as Truman meets with a turncoat from a rival gang. This tense showdown erupts quickly into mayhem, when Rains makes his unexpected entrance. In the wake of the ensuing bloodbath, Truman is forced to reevaluate his own role in the small, violent world he inhabits, suddenly aware that there are larger powers at work which he does not understand. It soon becomes obvious that the ... Written by Chris Carpenter

Captivating
11 November 2004 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

From the first gun shot to the last gun shot, The Prodigy was unlike any other film. The writing(Kaufman), acting, and Producing(Rucker)were all first class. The story line was quite fascinating, every character is involved in the underground crime scene, still a good guy is able to emerge from this violent circle. Truman(the lead character), is a complex character with a dichotomy of emotions, that leads one to wonder how he ever got involved in this lifestyle. The movie explores and shows a different side of crime that most have not ever thought about. How the producers and everyone involved made this first class film without the backing of a major movie house is testament to the creativity and dedication by everyone associated with the film.
