Prodigy - Quick Movie Review

Thursday, October 25, 2018

A psychologist engages a dangerous, young genius in a battle of wits -- unaware of the supernatural power the girl possesses, or that her life hangs in the balance. (IMDB)

This was an interesting and refreshing take on the telekinetic kid trope. Instead of explaining everything from the beginning, you experience and learn things when Fonda does. I was drawn in by the sense of something not being quite right from the beginning of the movie. Savannah Liles did a wonderful job as Ellie and outshined everyone else on the cast. The rest of the actors, especially when not involved in a scene with Savannah seemed to suffer a severe lack of chemistry with each other. This made their performance feel dull in comparison.

Rating: 6/10
