The Prodigy [Movie Review]

I was waiting for my next appointment when I thought 'why not kill some time by watching a movie?'

And just like that, I went to the counter and bought the ticket for 'The Prodigy'. 
Truth be told, I was not impressed by its trailer and do not actually have a plan to watch the movie in the cinema.

The movie starts with a girl running away from a farmhouse and stops a passing-by car and shouted' He took my hand'. Later, a police raid manages to kill a deranged-looking man, Edward Scarka, at that farmhouse and discovered his past women victims. He collects their hands (only one hand from each victim and buried their bodies).

At the same time as the man's death, Sarah gave birth to a long-awaited first-time baby boy, Miles. Sarah and her husband, John realises that the baby boy, Miles, have different colors eyes (know as Heterochromia, a difference in coloration between both eyes)  and shows extreme wisdom and intelligence since he is a toddler. He even begins speaking fluently before he was 1 year old.

So Mum, that's where you keep all your happy drinks?
Taking his intelligence as a sign of genius kid, Sarah lists Miles in a school for bright kids. During a night with his babysitter, Miles plays a prank on the babysitter and ends up seriously injuring her. When question about the accident, Miles claims no memory of doing so. 

He then attacks a classmate with a wrench when his request to partner up with a girl was rejected by that classmate. Distraught by Miles violent behaviour and him not being able to socialize with other kids, on the advice of one of their doctors, Sarah meets with an unconventional therapist, Arthur. Arthur explains there might be a violent soul trapped in Miles body, waiting to take over the child's soul and make it his own. Sarah dismisses the explanation.

But Miles behaviour gets increasingly hostile and violent by the day. When he kills their house dog and stuffs the corpse in his father's carpentry cupboard, Sarah decides it is time to confront Arthur again and gets treatment for Miles' behaviour.

I wonder if Rawlins gonna outdress and out-makeup me again this Halloween?
Will Sarah be able to save Miles' soul from being overtaken by the violent soul?

Plot: 4.0/ 5.0. You will know the plot of the story from the get-go. You'll know that the boy is being controlled by someone else to do the violent bits. The violent action, the gore scenes and also the twists throughout the movie will certainly get you shocked and awake! The movie will make you wanna bring your children to the doctor and get them checked whenever you see a similar behaviour as Miles'.

Cast: 4.8/ 5.0 I am amazed by Jackson Robert Scott as Miles. I just couldn't believe that such a young boy could be so violent!

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again.
