Where the heck has this dvd been? How did it totally fly under the radar? Forget about SAW 34 or DIE HARD 17, this is the real deal, amigos!! And how the heck does a guy act his ass off, wearing a ski mask, goggles and big black coat?

The action sequences were awesome, poetic and totally kicked ass!! One can almost smell the sulfur and taste the blood as the dvd plays on. And blood, there be a plenty!!

I'm not going to go into the plot. I'm not going to waste any more time.

Simply said, THE PRODIGY is the BEST, KICK ASS, WHIRLWIND of EXCITEMENT that I've ever seen! Don't walk, don't just run. Beg, borrow, steal. Do whatever you have to do to see this film.

Yeah, it's that good.

"There is a short list of films that can keep me up past my bedtime, and this one accomplished that. I was on edge, biting my fingernails. Holt Boggs gives a stunning performance as Truman Fisher; a mobster who tries to track down a crazed killer messing up their game. Though the mob has their own share of cruel hombres, the man they're hunting is 'off the charts'. Though the movie is a serious thriller and not for the squeamish, it does have comic moments that come at the right time, never nibbling the edge off the tension.

What tops off Holt Bogg's performance was his expressive eyes. We know he's a killer too, but we see the humanity and the anguish in his manner and expressions. I've seen this overdone, but Boggs nails it perfectly. Had he been born in a earlier era he would've been a hit in the Silent Film industry; Boggs can show us all with his eyes. There were great scenes played by supporting actors as well, and the movie was well-written with a seamless, non-sagging feel to the dialogue.

The Prodigy is a must watch for action/thriller lovers, and I know we'll be seeing Holt Bogg's in more leading roles."

"Picked this movie up at a rental place on a whim; the concept sounded intriguing-crazy, lone-wolf assassin finds his potential replacement in the form of a lower-tier mob enforcer, and puts him through hell to see if he is worthy. Knowing it was a low budget independent production and fearing the worst, I was extremely pleased at the overall look of the film: acting, production values, special effects, music were all topnotch. And the story was tight and tense from beginning to end. But the thing that really stood out for me was the hand-to-hand combat scenes: brutal, fast and vicious streetfighting like you'd see in real life, not like in the "movies." It made you hurt watching these guys beat the crap out of each other. I just placed an order w/ Amazon to purchase my own copy. Do yourselves a favor and check out this movie now! You will not be disappointed."

"I randomly got a hold of this juicy film, and was happy that I did. The action scenes were on point, and the cinematography of the film only added to the fluidity and raw styling of those scenes. This is an action film made for those who love action films."
