Kin is a tough sell. The sci-fi high con­cept – a kid finds a ray gun – meshes uneasily with a grounded drama about the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Eli (Myles Truitt) and his sketchy older brother Jimmy (Jack Reynor) as they go on the run from gang­sters. It’s al­ways watch­able, with Truitt and Zoë Kravitz’s Milly mak­ing a like­able duo, but it never quite fig­ures out what it’s try­ing to say, and ends with a goofy ex­po­si­tion bomb that sets up quite an un­likely se­quel.

Ex­tras Com­men­tary; ef­fects break­downs; trailer. Will Salmon
