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…
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…
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…
Samuel Jackson why did you partake in this crap? I don't to write anything we all know this was terrible for endless reasons.
Keine Ahnung, warum so viele den Streifen nicht mögen. Vielleicht liegt es an HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN, dem man die STAR-WARS- Pequels wohl einfach nicht verzeihen möchte.
Ich jedenfalls finde sowohl die Idee, als auch die Action absolut gelungen und bedauere das es nie zu einer, ganz klar geplanten, Fortsetzung kam.
A cute little train wreck.
It begins well enough - as a slick and serviceable sci-fi action thriller - but as soon as the stage is set and the plot moves onwards it devolves into boring, badly-thought-out, conspiracy theory-lite nonsense, with no satisfactory explanations. Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson are predictably wooden and useless (poor Bilson barely has anything to work with except the flimsiest cardboard cutout of a love interest) but it's actually Jamie Bell who's the real stinker here, all cringey affected hyperactivity and 'cool'.
Poor, poor Hayden Christensen.
This is the movie that only confirmed to us that Hayden Christensen shouldn't be allowed to star in movies.
It was cool and action packed. I wish I could be a jumper so I could explore the world for free
