movie facts

Despite a solid base to work with, Bag Man, the short film that inspired the feature-length Kin, as well as a cast of veteran actors, the film was a significant box office flop, falling far below its reported budget of $30 million, and being generally poorly received by critics. While the short film was highly regarded and lauded for its pacing and production values, as an independent project, many felt that the premise was spread too thin in a feature-length film, and the pacing and tone of the film have been criticized as being uneven and inconsistent.
