You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
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.
Thank goodness for VidAngel.
Cool concept but boring.
Very fun super powered action movie. It's unique which makes it fun on it's own. However the Jumper-Paladin conflict in my mind is under developed just a bit. You can tell they were planning a Jumper 2 that never happened. Still it's worth watching.
Unique travel action movie.
The scenery is cool but it's kinda boring.
Screenwriter 1: "Hey, let our main character teleport himself together with the antagonist to a cave in the middle of nowhere! And yes, he won't kill him!"
Screenwriter 2: "But wait... Isn't that totally illogical?!"
Screenwriter 1: "Mh, you're right... Whoa! That's it! We make our protagonist say that he could have killed him!"
Screenwriter 2: "But this won't make it any less illogical?! The first thing the antagonist will do after getting out of this cave is trying to kill the main character again!"
Screenwriter 1: "Er... You're right... Blah blah blah - fuck it. Let's do it."
A perfect 7. The main character is fine but makes really stupid choices. I really hate the love interest. There's loads of lost potential from this short ass film. Planet 51 and Cars 2 are longer than this. Why are they adults? What's wrong with them being 18? Aren't the stakes higher when they're STILL KIDS?! Also Sam Jackson needs to take a chill pill.
well i had a good time
It's an entertaining movie. The acting isn't half bad, and who doesn't love Samuel L Jackson?
originally this list had a very specific focus- now it's basically just english-language action cinema post-matrix.
the never ending NYC movie list.
feel free to add more if i missed any.
