Kin is incredibly rough and detached, holding too much in its peripherals but nothing directly in sight.
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.
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 6, 2019
This laser gun story misfires.
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 20, 2019
Neither the kid nor the laser gun ends up being all that important (or necessary).
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]

It's a little bit Terminator, a little bit coming of age, so very promising, and unfortunately a lot of disappointment.
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.
November 5, 2018
Kin ends up feeling like a pilot for a TV show that didn't deserve to be commissioned.
October 10, 2018
Kin lays out a lot of half-baked baggage and outright fog instead of the promised artful understatement.
September 21, 2018
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.
September 10, 2018
A Misfire.
September 7, 2018
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.
September 7, 2018
If the Baker boys truly were fabulous, they'd have had the guts to go all the way and earn an R rating.
September 6, 2018
For a film built around an enormous space gun, Kin boasts precious little action.
