Kin (2018)


Critic Consensus: Part family drama, part sci-fi adventure, Kin struggles to balance its narrative until a late twist that suggests it all might have worked better as the first episode of a TV series.

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

Kin proves to not be one thing or the other, defying any clear genre or demographic boundaries. It's not a blockbuster or a heroic young adult tale, just a devastatingly sad and terrible story...

Aug 31, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Given the film's title, and that the filmmakers are themselves twins, you would expect the brother relationship at the heart of the movie to be something more than it is.

Aug 30, 2018 | Full Review…

At times dull and plodding and at other times cartoonishly silly, Kin rarely works and, when it does, it's often for the wrong reasons.

Aug 30, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Although "Kin" doesn't cut it, some of its ideas are worthy of further development.

Aug 30, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A disjointed and at times off-putting mess that veers wildly and unconvincingly between a road movie, a family drama, a violent crime film and an offbeat sci-fi thriller.
