Movie Info

In the beginning, three were created. Man made of clay. Angels made of light. And a third made of fire. For centuries, stories of angels and men have captured the imagination and been etched into history crossing all boundaries of culture, religion and time. These two races have dominated the landscape of modern mythology, shrouding the evidence that a third was ever created. This third race, born of smokeless fire, was named the jinn. Modern man has all but forgotten this third race ever existed. It is time for him to remember. (c) Freestyle

Critic Reviews for Jinn

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

With its awful acting, terrible dialogue, and laughable special effects, "Jinn" strains for the hapless genius of Ed Wood, but ends up just another bad movie.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

Most of the time, this incoherent thriller resembles an overheated trailer for itself: a glaringly rough assembly of ill-staged computer-generated action sequences and portentous moments.

New York Times
Top Critic

As an attention-grabbing opening installment for what's obviously intended as an ongoing horror franchise, "Jinn" fizzles.

A watchable if rather convoluted effort.

"Jinn" is certainly not lacking in audacity, but its uneasy balance between inspired delirium and mundane genre dues-paying is its one bridge too far.

Audience Reviews for Jinn

I liked this movie cause it steps outside of the norm.It something I am not use to, but it has a place. I found this to be good.

I actually loved this movie. I really don't understand why the critic reviews weren't outstanding. I wouldn't say it's quite a horror movie, it actually reminded me of the twilight type movies. I would definitely recommend it!

Guy gets an old video from his father telling him of special abilities. Good special effects. Suppose it targets a younger audience. Fight scenes compliment a "coming of age" scenario.
