Kin is in theaters on August 31st, 2018.

Kin stars Myles Truitt as Elijah Solinski, an adopted child who struggles with his mothers death and being raised by his adoptive father Hal(Dennis Quaid). One day Elijah goes out exploring and stumbles upon some futuristic looking soldiers, he ends up finding a gun and takes it home. When his adoptive brother, Jimmy (Jack Reynor) comes home from prison, his father and brother have a falling out. Through a series of events Jimmy ends up taking Elijah on a road trip.

I wanted to love this movie, it was actually pretty slow and tiring to watch. The ending was awesome because apparently they saved all the good stuff for that. I could see the sequel being better than the first... it unfortunately felt like that’s all this movie was. A build up for a trilogy and it just was not good as a stand alone film. I enjoyed the premise but it was definitely missing a lot of dialogue and action.

The character of Jimmy was unbearable... nothing about his character stood out other than the fact that he was a terrible person.

I love seeing diversity in films and Miles Truitt did a great job. Zoe Kravitz also has a leading role, it’s very refreshing to see a mixed cast of people because you know - this is what the world actually looks like.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
