Overqualified Ensemble Save Muddled Sci-Fi Thriller 'Kin'

The guys behind the movie wants to turn it into a franchise. Dream on.


Kin (PG13)

Starring Myles Truitt, Jack Reynor, Dennis Quaid

Directed by Jonathan Baker & Josh Baker

A failed heist forces an ex-con (Transformers: Age of Extinction's Jack Reynor) and his adopted brother (Myles Truitt) to go on the run. The only thing keeping them safe is an alien superweapon (think a PS4 console that morphs into a laser hand cannon) the younger sibling found in an abandoned building.

And what’s keeping this muddled sci-fier from sinking are the overqualified supporting players — James Franco, Dennis Quaid, Zoe Kravitz, and a certain A-lister (psst, he has a new boxing movie out soon) who shows up late in the game to inform everyone that this is just the beginning of a saga.

Alas, the movie is too derivative and disjointed to think that far. (**)
