There, he tells his father, he will receive a divine message; one that he believes will change the course of humanity.

Discovering the true meaning of sacrifice, Erik will risk everything to deliver his son so that he can in turn deliver the message the world has been waiting for. PRODIGY is a father-and-son dramatic thriller full of adventure and humanity, that builds to a nail-biting conclusion. Amidst a journey of self-discovery, Erik is given one last chance at redemption as his faith and ability to deal with his past demons ...

PRODIGY is a parasite movie.
21 April 2019 | by S_SomaSee all my reviews

I don't think PRODIGY deserves a legitimate effort at a proper review from me for the following reason.

I'm sure there's a more commonly-used name for it, but since I don't know what it is, I'll simply call PRODIGY a "parasite" movie. A parasite movie is one that is quickly produced at the same time a very similarly named, more "legitimate", big-budget movie is making the rounds in theaters. Right now, there's a horror picture called THE PRODIGY playing at theaters accompanied by a lot of promotional advertising, and now here we have PRODIGY released direct to video.

Another example current at the time of this writing is the digitally animated DUMBO in theaters and the direct to video junk-animated movie JUMBO trying to capitalize on it.

The apparent objective of such parasite movies is a slimy attempt to capitalize on the popularity and advertising promotion of the host movie and get people to watch their crummy knockoff by mistake.

A particularly irritating feature of PRODIGY is that it's a spiritual/theological message movie from a Christian production company, Visionary Film Productions (VF). The only conclusion I can come to is Visionary Film Productions is hoping to Trojan horse their religious message by engaging in this kind of trickery.

In the interest of full disclosure, while I'm not religious myself, I am generally pro-Christianity on a philosophical basis. To my way of thinking, the entire mechanism of parasite movies falls into the general category of lying which goes into the whole general heading of bearing false witness, and we know what the 10 Commandments has to say about THAT. The fact that a Christian production company would engage in this kind of deceptive behavior just helps to support what atheists have to say about Christianity.

And the cherry on top is that the primary "prophet" character in the movie has the most ear-bleeding going-through-puberty cracking voice I've ever heard. It makes you want to stab yourself in both ears with a sharp pencil.

Visionary Film Productions, and all the people that work for them, should be ashamed of themselves for engaging in this kind of duplicity. WWJD
