The backdrop -- a flimsy fantasy version of a real life, politically messy tragedy -- reminds you yet again of the utter inconsequence of Jumper.

Highlander for a new generation: a cheesy, globetrotting film certain to be savaged by most critics, but also a mindlessly entertaining yarn likely to lead to a string of sequels and/or TV adaptations.

A complicated mess that doesn't offer audiences a single challenge beyond the very real challenge of getting through it.

How can such an interesting concept end up as such a boring movie? One reason: Hayden Christensen.

Pared-down with flat-footed characterizations, tacked on scenic shots of worldly venues and a choppy script that isn't disciplined enough to tap into our escapist imaginations, Jumper is a toothless travelogue that treks up the wrong charted route.

It's easy to see why audiences have embraced this critically lambasted film: Its premise is irresistible.

Colorado Springs Gazette

Jumper is the worst kind of movie, a concept charged with stellar potential and a plumbless creative reservoir that instead squanders its promise on mediocrity and outright banality.

For a movie about a guy jumping around a lot, this one is pretty flat.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

The opening of Jumper is so similar to the opening of Spider-Man that Stan Lee's copyright infringement sense must be tingling.

Last week was oddly synchronistic for me.

...a mindlessly engaging piece of escapist fare that benefits from its uniformly able performances and refreshingly brisk running time...

A movie of marvelous little moments framing giant dumb contrivances.

Jumper isn't a comic-book movie, but it feels like one.

I'm not going to beat around the bush here: Jumper is a terrible movie.

It's a good premise for a story, but is very sketchy.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

So indefensibly bad that it goes beyond awfulness to become, if not good, then at least hugely entertaining in its unintended hilarity and transcendent dopiness.

It's a concept without a story.

State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

Boring, bland and nasty. Christensen is the new Ryan Phillippe - no compliment unless you enjoy annoyingly blah detachment. And Bilson is a damsel of whom you hope distress gets the better - anything to shut her droning, dull yap.

Jumper is like a glorified TV pilot from 2005, when supernatural dramas were all the rage. It will make it onto the schedule, but have its legs cut out from under it before the season is over.

The disappointments and the inexplicable plot turns kept mounting until I finally surrendered and just admitted it: This was just a goodlooking clunker.
