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.
I'm so happy that Doug Liman went on to make "Edge of Tomorrow". The acting was decent enough and there were some cool little action scenes, but the story is very poor, the characters felt like movie characters and not like actual people.
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…
If I had bothered to remember this movie’s existence for more than 20 minutes after end credits (I wanna work on a big project with a dedicated “Rome Unit” someday), then I might have agreed with the harsh critical reception. Yet time passes, David Goyer persists as a wildly prolific PG-13 comic book screenplay presence, and a visit back to 2008 (insert Melania Trump joke here) now yields a surprisingly enjoyable 88 minutes. Also this is a Doug Liman joint, so I found this retroactively interesting as the director’s foundation for the [good not great] sci-fi action style & visual template he brought to my beloved EDGE OF TOMORROW.

Samuel L Jackson's in it.
It's an entertaining movie. The acting isn't half bad, and who doesn't love Samuel L Jackson?
Cool premise just needed better screenplay and character development.
Interesting enough concept, but bland storytelling and performances bring it down slightly...

Watched as part of scavenger hunt #17. (Film #9 of #30 - Task #19 - A celebrity couple (who may since then have separated) met on the set of this film!
Jumper is a very interesting concept for a film, however upon execution it becomes cheesy at times and then too self-serious at the same time. The script brings out some awkward dialogue through awkward performances which in the end really destroys what this could have been.
Jumper follows David (Christensen) after he discovers his power to teleport at the age of 15. After running away from home for several years he returns after finding himself on the run from Paladins, and their boss. (Jackson)
I love this concept, there's…
Fun. Good special effects. Lighter than I expected. Samuel L Jackson persuasive as the bad guy, as always.
Kristen Stewart is in this movie for like five seconds. That was surprising.
the never ending NYC movie list.

Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
