In the teen sci-fi thriller "Kin," a shy 14-year-old kid finds unearthly powers in the vacant warehouses of Detroit – an intriguing if standard young-adult premise that dissolves before your eyes in this inept and erratic directorial debut. Jonathan and Josh Baker's "Kin" expands from their 2014 short "Bag Man," a film that must have shown enough promise to attract a topline cast featuring Zoe Kravitz, Dennis Quaid, James Franco and a couple prominent late cameos in the full-length feature. Before leaving, Eli, while wandering the vacant buildings on his bike, comes across an alien gun that proves predictably handy in the showdowns to come, but that also sends a pair of very human-sized aliens on his path, speeding along – just like the extraterrestrial pursuers of "Under the Skin" – on motorcycles.Should a movie about a parentless 14-year-old be cantered on a gun, one that only he can fire?
