ReelViews for 'SCIENCE FICTION' movies
The cliche "it's so bad, it's good" doesn't apply here. "The Star Wars Holiday Special" isn't enjoyable on any level, campy or otherwise. It's just ugly, painful, and boring.
A superficially entertaining science-fiction action/adventure film that might have worked better had it focused more on the “science fiction” elements and less on the “action/adventure” ones.
Exemplifies the lackluster result of exhuming played-out franchises that are better left buried.
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.
By failing to embrace the absurdity of the situation, the movie sets itself up as just another summer blockbuster-of-the-week.
The idiotic ending doesn’t redeem the uneven middle portion. The film's biggest problem is identified by the title.
Although the production is too long and overreaches, it has a bizarre, crazy appeal that’s difficult to shrug off.
With its flashy action sequences and Tarantino-wannabe vibe, the movie tries hard to be hip and edgy but ends up simply being uneven.
Like all B-movies, this one provides moments of visceral satisfaction while ignoring nuance and (at times) logic.
