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…
Jumper is a pretty poor movie its no sy fy achievement, i have no idea why the sequels happening.
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…
Some lame and goofy shit which seemed to spend most of its time jumping through plot holes.
An interesting concept that started out alright, but completely fell apart in the third act. It didn't help that the characters' motivations (esp. Samuel L Jackson & his ilk) didn't make sense
Doesn't live up to its premise.
A lot of people don't like this movie. But I like this movie. Peace!!!
Someone has mistaken an idea of people who can transport from one place in the world to another as a story in itself. But a story is so much more than that, and this is so much less. And this non-story is not helped by the 'Jumpers' being repellent, selfish assholes, so you support the bad guys, hoping they'll succeed in putting an end to the 'Jumpers'' obviously criminal activity. A serious misstep from Doug Liman. Also the film is called 'Jumper', which is stupid.
Hayden Christiansen; now there's an actor with zero charisma and zero screen
A bit of a mess this one.
The film quickly establishes its premise before somehow making the movie's central conceit dull and uninspiring - even the exotic locations are shot in such a way as to make their "exoticism" lifeless and bland.
Let this be the end of Hayden's career; he's pretty to look at I guess, but he can't carry a movie (Jamie Bell fairs a little better).
Just meh. Don't bother.
If only I could jump back in time to stop myself from sitting through this lazily written, unremarkable bore. Jumper admittedly has nice visuals and a concept that could have churned out a solid Sci-Fi actioner, but instead we get Hayden Christensens dull lead, no explanation for why these characters have these powers, unanswered plot points, stale dialogue and little to no character development. It's No surprise to be honest, considering this was written by David S. Goyer, who wrote the travesty known as Man of Steel.
Meh. Starts off great, with a ridiculously cool concept, and then quickly becomes just ridiculous. Too much was left unexplained (WHY do Paladins hunt Jumpers? Like, really why?) and sometimes the action was too fast to even see and/or understand.
To quote Frank Cross: Well _that_ sucked.
