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.
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…
cool concept + Anakin + twilight emo chick + solid action + moronic plot = Meh.
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…
20 minutes into this and I can safely conclude that no one involved with this ever deserves to make a career in the film industry.
Takes awful to a whole new level.
No sé qué me falla para no terminar de enamorarme, supongo que la novia choni chunga, a la que hace la hostia que no ve, no me parece una razón de peso para esa movidaza.
I like this movie more than I should, I think mainly because I really like the IDEA of the movie, and because I like the director. I think what we have here is sort of like a deydrated film; almost all of the ingredients are here, but there was one missing element, which, if added, would have allowed the entire mixture to congeal. We have the skeleton, in other words. What was missing? Characters.
This movie has no characters. Our hero is a blank slate, with his one defining characteristic being that he's kind of an asshole. I don't really mind that he's not a hero (not everyone has to be), but he even treats the girl he loves like…
This movie was terrible. Jamie Bell is always good to watch but the story was so non existent that I had to cringe. The fact that the main character is so unbelievably unlikable, makes you just want him to die so the movie can be over and done with. Definitely one to avoid.
I loved the concept of this film, I just wish it was executed better.
Laba ideja apakšā, taču pieklibo izpildījums. Bet vienkāršai izklaidei noteikti nebūs sliktākā izvēle.
3D blu ray.
Hayden Christiansen as an unlikeable smug a-hole. Who casts this stuff?
Digámoslo de una vez: las películas de superhéroes son una mierda. Casi todas se pierden en moralinas (es la segunda vez que utilizo la palabra en seis días, sí), intentan poseer una profundidad que desde luego en los cómics de los que normalmente son originarios se puede ver reflejada, pero que queda en convencionalismo barato a la hora de su paso por la gran pantalla. Intentan ser algo que no son, y fracasan estrepitósamente. Spider-Man, Batman, X-Men… además de centrarse en un drama que no tiene ningún interés (tal vez por el enfoque), no lo hacen todo lo que deberían, en que, oye, esta gente son superiores al resto, no son personas normales, tienen objetivos y maneras diferentes de ver…
The plot is interesting, but the way it's told is complete garbage.
I don't have much to say other than that as a fan of the novel, the film was pretty disappointing.
A really good movie.
Mr.Dough,another boring director that worked in Hollywood.I'm more interested to join Samuel L.Jackson and eliminate those Jumpers.Another film that has ideas but failed to turn out how it should be.
