    A Surprise Sleeper Film in 2018!!! Fun!

    I think the thing to remember about this film that most people seem to be upset about; its not actually all that action PACKED. It is primarily an odd story about a couple of brothers and their run in with some nasty criminal characters, and yes it's almost entirely due to one of them being pretty dumb. He gets in way over his head and has really no choice but to drag his kid brother along for the ride. That's the primary story at play here, they just dropped a full on plasma rifle into the middle of it to kick it on its head. There's an excellent sense of escalation and even suspense involved, but in order to even make it to the plasma rifle's first firing you'll have to sit through a goodly chunk of the film. I get why this upset some viewers, but I found this approach refreshing. It allowed me to get invested in the characters and main story before the sheer chaos began. It's fairly gritty, and more than a little sad, but also full of humor and touching moments. If you allow yourself to care about the characters more than the rifle. I feel like that's pretty important. Every role is well acted, especially the mains, and James Franco clearly enjoys this kind of role because he shines as usual. Loads of fun to watch. The weapon itself is also a well crafted and written item, with satisfying action and a decent (if somewhat cryptic) explanation.

    When I rented this movie I didn’t expect to buyThe movie isn’t perfect but I really enjoyed Seeing The characters bond as brothers it felt real at times the movie seemed a bit cheesy but it is definitely unique especially if you enjoy Syfy elements at times it felt wholesome at other times A little more edgy It has a brief but good performance from Dennis Quaid and James Franco 95% certain this is th it has a brief but good performance from Dennis Quaid and James Franco Is the main antagonist In an era of Remakes this movie just continued to stand out and I had to get the 4K steelbook As a collector

    I really wanted to love this movie, and for the most part I did like it. I really hated the older brother. He is a hard person to relate to and he makes one bad decision after another. The ending turned out fine, with the super obvious plug for another movie, if they get the funding for it. If they do make a sequel I would be very much interested in that as I think this movie only touched the tip of the iceburg for what is potentially in store.

    Figured I'd take a chance with this movie. The previews looked pretty good but wasn't sure what to expect. Very well done with great acting. Great plot with some twists and turns. Surprised when I saw Michael B. Jordan's name come up as Executive Producer, and he makes a cameo at the end. The ending leaves you wanting to see more, and luckily it seems like there will be a 2nd part to this and I can't wait to see it!

    I grew up on science fiction, both books, comics, and movies thanks to my mother who loved them also. Kin is one of those movies that I wish had been me when I was a kid, discovering alien technology, etc. Fun movie that I and my oldest son enjoyed watching. Hey! We're huge fans of Stranger Things and this didn't disappoint.

    I was looking forward to the 4K and HDR to make the colors pop in this one but sadly it didnt stand out. In fact most of the time it looked like I was watching a bluray because of the grainy filter over the film. Movie was good but the money would be better spent on the bluray version.

    The plot on this movie is really slow so much so that I frequently wondered where it was going. It wasn't until the last ten minutes of the movie that the unknown was revealed, and that screamed sequel. The themes are a little dark and no really appropriate for young children.

    This movie was really great! Great action with a good story. I really enjoy movies that have an original story and KIN is that movie. If you like sci-fi movies with a dash of action and a hint of drama, then you will love this movie! Sit back, strap in and get ready for a unique thrill ride!

    The story for this one I felt was engaging and really kept my attention. I definitely recommend seeing this on a TV with HDR or dolby vision if you can, and of course surround sound is a must. I think the atmos was a tad weak maybe, but that didn't affect my view on this movie!

    A brilliantly made action, thrilling adventure sci-fi movie. Myles Truitt performance was a cut above (for a relative newcomer) Veteran Dennis Quaid performance was stellar-though short-lived. All- in- all, Kin is a good movie, especially with that Michael B. twist at the end.

    An underrated him that was ahead of its time. All I can say is that it deserves a lot more credit than what It got. The bond of family and friends is far stronger than the outside forces tearing at them. The twist ending is what makes the film entertaining.

    If you haven't seen this and you enjoy comic book movies or scifi films watch this you won't be disappointed. Theres not much in the way of a superhero but they leave this completely open to do so if they ever get around to making a sequel. This was a great movie!

    There are movies that you MUST turn your brain off because reality is just out there and character dynamics are impossible to imagine.. This film takes a bit of Sci-Fi and gives it a REAL family story and I loved it! Go for it, you’ll enjoy the story!

    The story is really about a young boy dealing with issues of a youth...loss, family, school, etc. Added to coping with youth and family problems is the finding of a really cool futuristic gun that he uses to help himself and his family. Has unexpected ending.

    This action adventure movie with a sci-fi twist for children and grown-ups alike was much better than I had expected. Watch as a young boy from nowhere finds his true identity and destiny in this visually stunning movie. Definitely worth the watch!

    This kinda came outta no where, or wait that's how the movie acts. It explains nothing. It just is a fun story, no spoilers here... If you want to keep guessing on why and what you can till finally the end 2 min gives an explination… or does it really?

    Purchased an Samsung 65Q9FN a few months ago and have been trying to see how 4K movies on my Xbox X look on it with. I am very impressed by the quality of this 4K movie. The Best Buy employee was very helpful and said I would not be disappointed.

    A friend told me he liked this movie, but for me, it dragged on and gave a false hope of something more. It was watchable, but it had so much more potential. Some reveals should have happened sooner. Could have been better.

    I really was happy to find a action sci-fi film with well rounded characters that were quite realistic. Good emotional bond between all characters. Great debut from New actor Myles trout. James Franco made a nice villain. Enjoyable.mms
