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.

Character and plot development alike are passed over in lieu of slick action sequences. Unfortunately, that makes it difficult to care about the peril of any of the characters or to feel any attachment to the ridiculous plot points the movie throws at us. "Jumping" is a fascinating and inventive ability, but director Doug Liman should have spent more time on developing his backstory and characters than on the many thrilling action scenes in this movie.

"Jumper" by Yojimbo

A teenager discovers he can teleport anywhere at will and sets himself up in a self-indulgent hedonistic lifestlye, little knowing that he and his kind are being hunted by a clan of zealots intent on their extermination. Jumper is a classic example of a Hollywood "blockbuster" that never got past the concept stage. No doubt cooked up in the wake of the success of the X Men movies and Heroes, the vacuous plot leaves virtually EVERYTHING unexplained and the hero and his love interest were clearly chosen for their ability to look good on the covers of movie mags rather than any semblance of ability. Jamie Bell keeps things from reaching the level of sheer tedium, but SLJ phoned in his "bad guy" persona and the whole thing felt like a TV show pilot that I'd walked in on half way through; thin...

Well, Jamie Bell is Good

I thought the beginning was pretty fascinating–about how Hayden Christensen’s character discovered his power for the first time–but it went downhill pretty fast. The film lacks a good plot behind the interesting premise so it doesn’t hold up to anything. The latter two-thirds of the movie is basically about Samuel L. Jackson’s character hunting down Christensen without any sort of an explanation why. Jackson’s main quip is that no one should have the power to be everywhere at once. I can’t help but roll my eyes whenever that is said in the movie. If you’re going to have a villain who is both strong and smart, give him or her at least one driving force that justifies (at least in his or her mind, or even better ours as well) his actions. Jamie Bell is about the only great thing about this ...

Jumper didn't jump out at me!

It seems that nowadays Hollywood is content with putting out rushed action movies with some high profile actors to capture the summer blockbuster market and Jumper fits right into this category. The story of David, (a bland performance from Hayden Christensen) who discovers that he can "jump" between different places.
During an accident when David was 15, he makes his first jump and decides to run away from home as everyone presumes that he dead. He then robs a bank and begins a lifestyle of pleasure and indulgence.
Problems begin for David when he found by Roland (Samuel L. Jackson, sporting an interest hair color) and his troop of Jumper hunters. As the cat and mouse game begins, David discovers Griffin (a scene steeling Jamie Bell), a fellow jumper who is the only who can help him d...
