At times dull and plodding and at other times cartoonishly silly, "Kin" rarely works and, when it does, it’s often for the wrong reasons.

Engages because the actors are sufficiently invested that they give breadth and depth to characters who are, for the most part, underwritten.

Has to be engaged on its own level – and that’s a challenging place in which to be processing a film this unconventional.

Although sporadically amusing, it feels like a 20-minute short that was expanded to feature length to its considerable detriment.

Although there are individual moments that snap, crackle, and pop, the production as a whole is bloated and at times even a little tedious.

The only way "Kidnap" could possibly work is if the viewer isn’t paying attention.

This is the Origin of King Arthur According to Guy Ritchie and, if nothing else, it’s kinetic and attention-grabbing.

A good monster movie but not such a good "Kong" movie.

A paint-by-numbers, creatively bankrupt “comedy” emerging from a studio system that has largely forgotten what it means to be genuinely funny.
