The Prodigy is one of the best independent films I have ever seen. The storyline and acting were great. Holt Boggs (Truman) and Matt Beckham (Pat)work well together and Lawrence Varnado does a great job as King in the film. The action is also fantastic, it even compares to many films coming out of Hollywood these days. What makes it that much better is that it was filmed right here in Dallas, hopefully the people in LA will notice the talent here in Texas. The production design and cinematography are fantastic, and give the film such a great look about it. I am especially looking forward to future projects by the director, William Kaufman. Can't wait to go see it again.
