Kin is incredibly rough and detached, holding too much in its peripherals but nothing directly in sight.
June 23, 2020
A solid, worthy adventure tale. Kin certainly has its issues, but leaving us hanging is not one of them, despite what may be your initial reaction to the end of the film.

[A] slightly-above-Netflix quality film with enough heart and style.
March 4, 2020
Mostly works, despite some occasionally thudding B-movie dialogue.
October 18, 2019
The new film "Kin" wants to be many things: a sci-fi fantasy, a road trip comedy, a coming-of-age story, and a brutal actioner. At times, it succeeds in individually essaying all of them, but taken as a whole, the film is quite a mess.

Kin is a movie that never should have been made.
July 15, 2019
James Franco is excellent as the stereotypical sleazy dirtbag. As an actor, he is a chameleon who always delivers on screen.
June 17, 2019
The 80s feel that the film tries to imprint feels false. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 17, 2019
The elusive representation of an alien duel in an abandoned factory and the first zenithal planes show a clear unfulfilled promise. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 11, 2019
Well-intentioned. [Full review in Spanish]
June 6, 2019
This laser gun story misfires.
June 3, 2019
Clearly the work of talented filmmakers with unique sensibilities, but it ultimately paints itself into a dramatic corner from which it never quite figures a way out.
May 1, 2019
Would've best been presented as a Netflix series of sorts instead of the overly stuffed, uneven science-fiction-come-road-drama it ultimately plays out as
April 16, 2019
Despite the calibre of some of the performances, and however fresh and novel some of the cinematography and pacing, it's difficult to recommend Kin because of its central premise.
March 30, 2019
Myles Truitt and Jack Reynor act as real brothers would, and it brings a lot of charm to this otherwise fair movie.
March 20, 2019
Neither the kid nor the laser gun ends up being all that important (or necessary).
February 6, 2019
While the elements don't necessarily blend as they should, the individual pieces of "Kin" are actually pretty good.
January 29, 2019
Kin is an interesting story and genre bender of a film. I think that viewers will have to go in with the understanding that the movie isn't going to be a typical sci-fi or drama.
January 8, 2019
The first part of Kin seems to be an indie drama with sci-fi beats, but it keeps its best cards for the final cliffhanger. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 8, 2019
It's a little bit Terminator, a little bit coming of age, so very promising, and unfortunately a lot of disappointment.
