I like it, but did not really like it
10 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Interesting thing about Jinn, it feels like a low-key Fantasy film, like The Lord of the Rings with out money. Low-Key Sci-fi films are more common, such as recently released Under the Skin or last years' Her, but I can't recall a low key Fantasy film, in which The Fantasy elements are not so played up visually, but are integrated mostly in the story content.

The movie takes place in modern times like The Percy Jackson series, but unlike Percy Jackson, I don't think the film had any money for anything too flamboyant, but I will say that the visual effects they did have were done well.

The visual effects made for a very dark and eerie villain with the Jinn, a group of Sentiment beings briefly mention in the bible as creatures God made in the same essence as The Angels and Man, and now wish to take back the world they walked on first, due to their jealousy of man

Although the protagonist of the movie had the looks but seemed a little stiff, possibly not use to being the center of a movie, I'm glad they did not use a typically white actor as the dashing hero.

I went to go see this movie because I saw Ray Park had a role in it. We all remember Ray Park from his breakthrough role as Darth Maul in episode one. During his 15 minutes they mention he was a skilled marshal artist. Unless I'm missing a movie or two, I never really seen him do a Marshal arts film, and with Jinn, I still haven't. The movie lacks the adventure I was expecting from it.

The story itself was good but I feel it was not laid out well enough or maybe fantasy is not met to be done low-key. At the end of the movie they say their is more to come, but I don't think this movie is good enough to get a better sequel funded.
