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.
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.
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…
Samuel L Jackson's in it.
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…
Upon watching this I realize that Hayden Christensen's acting is quite sub-par. DESPITE THAT, I think this movie has a really awesome premise that just misses its mark. The writing is heavy handed at times and the there are some directorial decisions that have me scratching my head (hand cam while they casually walk down a stairwell, really?). Rachel Bilson's character is adorable but doesn't have a lot to work with (oh hello childhood crush who supposedly died 8 years ago and now wants to take me on a Rome get away), Samuel Jackson brings his usual level of bad-assery, and hello random cameo of Kristen Stewert.
Good Premise. Meh execution.

Yes, Jumper isn't a great movie at all, but it's really not as bad as it's been made out ever since it was released. There's no doubt that it suffered from post Star Wars Hayden Christensen hate.
The film had it's moments, in particular, I liked all the locations that they used. It worked well in that way.
Where it didn't work was some of the acting was off and you literally don't find out why this is all happening. You're just thrown into the story. Needed a little more substance.

>Samuel L. Jackson de cabelo branco.
>Tem uma ideia que poderia ser bem melhor aproveitada.
>O antagonista não tem nenhuma motivação.
>Já te disse que tem o Anakin Skywalker?
>Por causa da ideia mal-aproveitada o filme ficou clichê.
>TEM O ANAKIN SKYWALKER DA TRILOGIA MERDA DE SW!!!
>10 out of 10
Well this was certainly a lot better than I expected it to be. It's not Oscar material but it's entertaining and jams an incredible amount of stuff into its relatively standard runtime. A definitive recommendation if you have some time to kill and want to be pleasantly surprised.
this could have been good, yet it is drowned in a sea of cliches, badly written dialogues and the couple with the least amount of chemistry possible between them could not do anything to save the film
The fun of teleporting!
Such a great performance by Kristen Stewart.
