  • Summary: In the beginning, three were created. Man made of clay. Angels made of light. And a third made of fire.
    For centuries, stories of angels and men have captured the imagination and been etched into history crossing all boundaries of culture, religion and time. These two races have dominated
    the landscape of modern mythology, shrouding the evidence that a third was ever created. This third race, born of smokeless fire, was named the jinn. Modern man has all but forgotten this third race ever existed. It is time for him to remember. Expand

    Magical swords, evil doppelgangers, a sexy black muscle car, an unremarkable final showdown and lots of first-draft dialogue factor into this thankfully brief (about 80 minutes plus end credits) frightfest.

    Intriguingly, Jinn makes a plea for understanding and cooperation between Muslims, Jews and Christians. Disappointingly, writer-director Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad does all too good a job burying that message within a blustering supernatural thriller.

    A deeply dopey, distinctly not-terrifying, unintentionally hilarious supernatural thriller.

    [A] ponderously paced, needlessly convoluted and altogether unexceptional thriller.

    Most of the time, this incoherent thriller resembles an overheated trailer for itself: a glaringly rough assembly of ill-staged computer-generated action sequences and portentous moments.

    This is not a good movie. But it is not that far off from one. The basic story is fine for the genre. There are some scary moments. It holds your attention. But there are some glaring problems with editing, Foley sound, acting, makeup and special effects. The lead actor is absolutely terrible, but he is good looking and has a great physique. Some of the supporting acting is fine or good, some of it is like a high school play. The editing is so choppy and disjointed that one wonders who was overseeing the editor. There are moments of good special effects and makeup and moments when those technical elements are glaringly amateurish. There clearly was too much money spent on custom body panels and a 60's style hood for the modified Camaro that looks like it is trying out for Transformers (and we are supposed to believe that it is the main character's great design), money that should have been spent on acting lessons, hiring a real editor and having a professional writer look at the script. But Jinn is ultimately doomed by the vanity of the writer/director/editor/producer behind it. He is so inept at most of the tasks that it is at times comical. But because it was his money behind most of this, nobody dared tell the emperor that he was naked. Expand
