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

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.

Myles Truitt and Jack Reynor act as real brothers would, and it brings a lot of charm to this otherwise fair movie.

Neither the kid nor the laser gun ends up being all that important (or necessary).

While the elements don't necessarily blend as they should, the individual pieces of "Kin" are actually pretty good.

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.

It's a little bit Terminator, a little bit coming of age, so very promising, and unfortunately a lot of disappointment.

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]

The movie nicely captures an America at the fringes. It is rare - and rarer still in science fiction - to find a film that does that without a sense of pity or parody.
November 15, 2018
All these positives aren't enough to make this movie good, since it's let down by an incredibly dated story full of some of the most tired clichés, without even attempting to add something new or fresh to spice things up.

Kin ends up feeling like a pilot for a TV show that didn't deserve to be commissioned.

Kin lays out a lot of half-baked baggage and outright fog instead of the promised artful understatement.

The high concept and visual effects add a bit of science fiction to Kin, but don't let that fool you. This is a film about family and loyalty, and it tells that tale well.

The sci-fi film Kin has a potentially interesting central relationship between two brothers, but how it positions a gun as something that gives a boy confidence is less than ideal.

A Misfire.

Until it reaches that bewildering ending, Kin is mostly just a snooze fest. It drags along, finding the energy to come to life only intermittently.
September 7, 2018
This somewhat ambitious but mostly misguided potpourri of disparate genre elements is more noteworthy for its intriguing concept than its slapdash execution.

If the Baker boys truly were fabulous, they'd have had the guts to go all the way and earn an R rating.

For a film built around an enormous space gun, Kin boasts precious little action.

Overall, KIN views like a 2-hour prequel meant to whet your appetite, but instead is a foul-smelling warning to stay away from whatever comes next.
