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

Wonderful Independent Film
9 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

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.
