    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.

    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.

    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.

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

I was excited at the concept of this film since most Westerners don't know much about the mysterious "jinn" from desert and Islamic folklore. The actors were terrible, the music scoring sounded like something off of Spotify, the dialogue was weak and without feeling, and above all, the plot was full of holes and poor execution.

    It was painful to watch this cool concept get destroyed.

    This movie is NOT GOOD! Don't Waste your time for this Movie!! Is Suck and Make me sick.
    After suffering through the first 60 minutes, I was left completely mind boggled by this horrible attempt at a movie. This movie would have been better without a director. All the guy did was make a stupid camaro and parade it around town. He put himself in the movie because he knew it would be the only time anyone would see him on screen. Overall, the acting, writing, directing, and soundtrack were all garbage. Please don't watch this abomination of a motion picture even if they give you a free ticket. Hopefully the jinns don't get me for watching this insulting spectacle.

I have seen B movies that have more potential. The script, the dialogues, the characters are all forgettable. Nothing about this movie flows smoothly. The dialogues seem to be written by an amateur, therefore I cannot blame the actors for doing such poor job. The 'horror' scenes are almost comical. The less said about this movie, the better.
