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…
It was cool and action packed. I wish I could be a jumper so I could explore the world for free
Es gracioso cuando en las películas tiran por el romance como trama principal, pero en cambio no se toman la molestia de hacerlo plausible. Además la historia secundaria de buenos y malos es tan simple que da dolor de cabeza.
Los efectos especiales no estaban mal para su tiempo.
P.D. Y espero que la secuela vaya de una Kristen Stewart malota asesina de jumpers. Sep.
Been about 6 years since I've seen this film. Was substandard then and is sub standard now.
I do like it but its very basic, despite having a cool concept. It's never really lived out to its full potential.
One of the stongest presmises and first-halves of a film I've possibly ever seen.
Cool concept. Some neat special effects. But not a good idea to cast Hayden Christensen as the lead. His whining grows too tiresome.
It's ok. It's not a serious movie, although it wants to be, and it's not much fun either. Had it been either one of these, the movie would be enjoyable.
Samuel L. Jackson is typical. Anakin Skywalker is bland, ditto for Bilson. Fun Fact: Kirsten Stewart appears at the end, perfectly bookending the blandness of the film.
Doug Liman has improved, but this money making attempt doesn't do his career any positive or negative service. It's a filmography filler.
I wouldn't recommend you watch it, only to stop you from wasting your time.
Jumper is a really fun sci-fi action film with an awesome concept and great effects.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
