    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I probably enjoyed this movie way more then I should of. Sets up a cool universe that we'll probably never get to see because it didn’t make any money. Also has a surprising A-list cameo

    This is a really nice steelbook. Glossy and the colors pop because of the gloss finish. Glad they gave me the option to order the standard blu ray release instead of having to pay extra for 4K

    I admit I am generally easy to please when it comes to Sci Fi or Action movies and this did NOT leave me disappointed at all. Get it on 4K for the BEST viewing experience.

    I love this movie. This movie was about family and love. It was about taking responsibility for your actions and forgiving others for their bad decisions. I am hoping for a part two.

    This is a very misleading movie. It has action, family love and a good moral lesson behind it's story. It's special effects were great as well! Good to Watch!

    You either love it or hate it but I happened to appreciate all the elements of this one as a young boy finds an alien weapon to ward off bullies with!
