Before long, the two of them are also pursued by federal agents and mysterious mercenaries aiming to reclaim their asset.
I dont know what movie the other reviewers saw but what I witnessed was an epic film shot well directed well with interesting locations and great locations. Kin aikens back to a more subtle time, where a film doesnt have to shove subject matter down your throat to be categorized within a genre. The sci-fi is subtle the coming of age is subtle the love story is subtle the action is subtle with payoffs but when you add all this subtlety together you get an epic adventure. Albeit the passing feels slow at times it's nice to add some breathing room for the characters to grow and the story to progress more than a to b. Alot of the story is showed and not told, a nice contrast to other films released along side. 10/10 would reccomend to anyone and everyone.
