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.
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…
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…
Horray for teleporting fights in a colosseum
honestly such a dumb movie. I really don't like any of the characters. The plot made sense in the sense that things happened in a linear direction--bad guy wants kill good guy, captures girl, etc--but makes absolutely no sense in the sense that I have no fucking idea why anything in this movie matters or is happening. I honestly couldn't give a shit about a bunch of weird religious zealots killing annoying 20 somethings that can teleport at will.
but it's that senselessness that makes this movie pretty fun to watch. There are no stakes, so you can just revel in weak screenwriting, bland characters, and the weird absurdity of Samuel L. Jackson's hair and motivations (why is his hair…
It is not that big of a movie if you ask me but it was the first movie I ever watched with teletransportation which is something I have always bern fascinated about so that is why my rating is so high actually.
Et godt eksempel på en rigtig god idé der er blevet udført på den dårligst mulige måde. Ligegyldig instruktion, overspillet og tåkrummende skuespil og fuldstændig forkert castet på stort set alle karakterer!
En film der om et stykke tid vil gå i den store filmiske-glemmebog, som så mange andre under middel-film har gjort før den.
“Jumper” is set in a world where certain individuals, for reasons that are never explained, gain the power the teleport anywhere in the world with a thought. One of these “jumpers”, David Rice (played by Hayden Christensen), has used his powers for personal gain. After growing up in a broken home in Ann Arbor, Michigan, his powers accidentally trigger, sending him on the run for years. He robs banks, travels the world, and lives the life of luxury. And he isn’t the only “jumper” in the world. There are, however, force aligned against the “jumpers”, a quasi-religious, extra-governmental group called “the Paladins” (led by an inexplicably blond Samuel L. Jackson). The paladins believe that no human should possess the powers…
i remember watching this in theatres when i was in middle school and the next day my friend and i laminated pictures of hayden to put in our wallets
I remember watching it and wanting a sequel. Hence, I think I was thoroughly entertained.
First time I watched this movie I thought it was bad. Nothing has changed since then, only that I love Hayden and Rachel.
Sehr guter Film !!
Total Run Time of 90 minutes or less. Have I seen them all? Yes, but that doesn't mean I'll vouch…
Here is My Film Score Favorites... The majority will be ranked according to film composer. I excluded all (except one)…
