A crime thriller with a sci-fi twist, Kin, is the feature directorial debut of brothers Jonathan and Josh Baker based on their short film Bag Man. It’s the story of Eli (Myles Truitt), the adopted little brother of recently released ex-con Jimmy (Jack Reynor) who stumbles upon a strange-looking weapon in what appears to be an abandoned building. When Jimmy is dragged back into the criminal world by a nasty associate from his pre-prison life (James Franco), his little brother decides to come to his rescue with his new weapon. But the powerful weapon soon attracts unwanted attention, and the brothers find themselves running from Jimmy’s old associates, federal agents, and “otherworldly soldiers.” Also starring Zoe Kravitz, Dennis Quaid and Carrie Coon.

I thought this was a very good movie. The acting was great the story was good and the special effects were not that bad. it was a bit slow at first but once it picked up it was good ....kind of just ended I wanted more... still liked it alot though.
I love action and suspense and this was a little of both. Bummed I only saw MBJ for two minutes but I like the movie, I knew the kid was special from jump. Minus the stripper scene I think my son would have liked it, but I didn’t take him because I didn’t know what the movie was about it was a last minute thing but I’m glad I saw it. I hope there is a continuance because I gotta know what happens in the other world. 👍🏾
Newcomer Myles Truitt inhabits the role with an earthbound soulfulness — what you might call the opposite of heroic flash — and even when the film’s progress feels more mechanical than organic, he’s easy to root for.
Kin never feels like more than uninspired borrowings from other, better genre films; it’s a story about family without any heart.
It never feels complete or thought through enough, either as a story or more crucially, an emotional experience — which is exactly what audiences would need in order to want to see more.
