Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
anywhere is possible.
A genetic anomaly allows a young man to teleport himself anywhere. He discovers this gift has existed for centuries and finds himself in a war that has been raging for thousands of years between "Jumpers" and those who have sworn to kill them.
cool concept + Anakin + twilight emo chick + solid action + moronic plot = Meh.
The definition of a Meh movie.
I admit the movie had a cool premise but doesn't deliver like it could have.
Samuel L Jackson plays the villan and his motives are almost nonexistent.
It's like this movie was made so that the filmmakers could have a vacation.
But i must give the movie some credit it had some nice landmarks in it.
Doug Liman's directorial career is a little patchy. A lot of people loved "Swingers", (I didn't) "The Bourne Identity" set new standards for action with a confident superspy for a new millennium and "Mr & Mrs Smith" ticked all the boxes for a comedy/romance/action flick with attitude.
"Jumper" has a cool concept. It had the scope to be great,but it's a dud. Hayden Christensen has the charisma of roadkill and acting skills to match. Honestly how does this guy have a career. He was lucky Jar Jar Binks was involved in the Star Wars Prequels or it would have left him holding the bag for the numerous flaws the films were littered with. Jamie Bell is a decent young actor and…
I don't why there doing a sequel, I mean this was OK but just end Hayden Christensen's career already.
Much more fun than I remember it being, Jumper is still not a very good film simply because it destroys a fantastic concept by over complicating a simple plot. Everything involving Diane Laine is just the worst, and the idea of turning this film into a franchise lords over every aspect of this film. The result is an unsatisfying film that could have been a fantastic stand alone movie.
The best part of the film is the realization of the teleporting characters. Every single action scene has a solid sense of location, even though characters are constantly jumping in and out of different locales. The editing is seamless, and I would say that the editing prowess alone is enough of…
The lead character is a jackass, or i can dare to say is so stupid, terrible made and so selfish and awful to we care about, but is interesting to understand; His selfish way to see this world; like stealing banks and calling us stupid too much do nothin' with our own honest lives, and besides His morals and philosophies against the right and the wrong are in this highly competitive society . It defines: what the kids thinks today.
Jumper is a cool movie to watch with many awesome vfx ,and a pair of fuckin' good action scenes in this greatest summer blockbuster of 2008, directed by Doug Liman the one who did Bourne Identity (2002) is about jumpers…
Despite its brisk running time this is pretty dreary stuff. None of the emotional material works, and Jackson's character doesn't make any sense. The effects are fun and sort of cool. Bilson is HOT. But it's a misfire.
If it hadn't been for Hayden Christensen and his shitty fucking acting... Pardon my latin... His lack of talent... ...No... It is impossible to describe how bad this man is at his job. He really makes Keanu Reeves look like Robert De Niro in comparison and the only thing he is capable of doing is to raise my adrenaline level, not by contributing to the action or suspense in the film, but rather with his innate, unrestrained incompetence.
I like Doug Liman. I liked "Edge of tomorrow". I liked "Bourne's identity"... Even the story on its own carried some sort of potential, at least as far as creative set pieces are concerned, but the minute he allowed Christensen on the…
yeh nice gimmick m8
Despite an interesting premise, entertaining action sequences, and impressive visual effects, Jumper is a boring and poorly written sci-fi film with mostly bland performances, thin plotting, generic dialogue, and uninvolving characters.
Film #7 of the "Scavenger Hunt #4" Challenge!
Jumper is a fairly digestible movie if you are looking for nothing too serious or if your concentration isn’t at its best. Nothing wrong with this film but it is what it is......
Starring Hayden Christensen, who discovers that he has the ability to teleport to anywhere in the world through a sequence called “Jumping”. As probably would anyone on this planet, he abuses it to gain wealth & pull woman. He robs bank vaults by “Jumping” into them & teleporting the money back to his domain.
Unknown to David (Christensen), he is not alone with this ability & he receives a wake-up call from a covert Government Agent by the name…
Scattered chasing movie
and yet another movie that could have been so much better
movie on a plane #2 (awful but probably censored)
Don't see or totally understand everyones avid hatred for this film, not THAT bad in my eyes.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
