We present the experimental investigation of superconductivity in unintentionally doped MBE grown InN samples with various InN film thicknesses. A significant change in resistivity was observed at 3.82 K, for an 1080 nm InN layer with carrier concentration n3D=1.185x1019 cm-3. However, no significant resistance change was observed in the case of InN samples with carrier density of 1.024x1019 cm-3, 1.38x1019 cm-3, and thicknesses of 2070 and 4700 nm, respectively. The carrier density of all investigated samples was within the range of values between the Mott transition (2x1017 cm-3) and the superconductivity to metal transition (7x1020 cm-3). We believe that at lower temperatures (3He) which we cannot achieve with our set-up, the phase transition in other samples is likely to be observed. The origin of the observed anisotropic type-II superconductivity is discussed
