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…
No esta tan mal, pero es demasiado olvidable esta pelicula. Debe ser por el banana ese q tiene cara de nada.
Christensen gives a semi decent performance, Jamie Bell is very charismatic, the action is great and it is excellently shot. I also loved how bullshit free the movie was, short and sweet.
Sure, Bilson and Christensen friendship/romance could have been fleshed out a lot more, the villain is bad given the potential it had and how inorganic the twist is, but I liked it.
Well, this was pretty disappointing. I was a big fan of the book as a teenager (in fact, I just got it so I can read it again and compare the two) but that was less wild sci-fi over-the-top action and more interesting coming-of-age drama with some sci-fi elements mixed in. I remember being fascinated by how it explored all the things he would and could do with this power, and while the movie does touch on that, it spends a lot more time building up a ridiculous villain that just exists and is accepted with zero explanation. Combine that with an extremely rushed second half (especially compared to the leisurely first half) and a bizarre ending, and this movie…
This movie was a lot better than the first time I watched it. Very enjoyable.
This has to be one of the most frustrating films I've ever seen. Such a facsinating plot device buried under a typical love story? No thanks.
The erratic and sometimes stupid behavior of the protagonist and the love interest tears the superficially interesting story apart. Jumper is no movie to think about. It can provide light hearted fun for an hour, though.
This was my second viewing of Jumper. I watched it years ago when it first came out and I enjoyed it then. I also enjoyed it this time. It's definitely a mindless film... Leave your brain at the door and enjoy a senseless film.
Hayden's acting isn't the best, but he's definitely easy on the eye... Jamie Bell is annoying. But his character is meant to be like that. I can't take him serious as a grown up actor after his role as Billy Elliott.
A generic action film despite an otherwise intriguing premise, the substandard acting certainly doesn’t help matters either.
Doug Liman's direction and an intriguing premise don't save Jumper from it's unlikable lead character, poor performances, predictable story and numerous plot inconsistencies. It's terrible, but not terrible enough to get worked up about, it's just sort of there.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
