David Rice is a man who knows no boundaries, a Jumper, born with the uncanny ability to teleport instantly to anywhere on Earth. When he discovers others like himself, David is thrust into a dangerous and bloodthirsty war while being hunted by a sinister and determined group of zealots who have sworn to destroy all Jumpers. Now, David’s extraordinary gift may be his only hope for survival!
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…
If I had bothered to remember this movie’s existence for more than 20 minutes after end credits (I wanna work on a big project with a dedicated “Rome Unit” someday), then I might have agreed with the harsh critical reception. Yet time passes, David Goyer persists as a wildly prolific PG-13 comic book screenplay presence, and a visit back to 2008 (insert Melania Trump joke here) now yields a surprisingly enjoyable 88 minutes. Also this is a Doug Liman joint, so I found this retroactively interesting as the director’s foundation for the [good not great] sci-fi action style & visual template he brought to my beloved EDGE OF TOMORROW.

Samuel L Jackson's in it.
Anakin sky walker uses the force, tries to resist the dark side, fights Mace Windu and has a romance with dollar store Padme
good action but the ending is a let down.
Why did I do this to myself
I Love this movie, It's one of my favorites. It's no epic story telling or script but it delivers the goods. I also like the fact that the main character is a slime ball and selfish prick who thought he had it made but learns that every gift has a price. I also think if weren't for so much Star Wars Prequel vitriol and hate for Hayden, this movie would have been a success at the box office and we could have gotten a part 2. It's a shame, needs a REBOOT !!!
Pretty good movie solid acting too if it was about 30-45 minutes longer would have been a lot better. The whole movie just felt rushed.
Great premise, good set-up, boring plot, not great Rachel Bilson. Everything about Jumper screams "rejected CW pilot".
30 minutes into this and i'm already bored...
Thank goodness for VidAngel.
