Ignore the previews. Unless there was a drastic change of storyline in the editing room at the last minute, the final cut is a lot more interesting than originally advertised.

Sam relishes doing super-mean and ready to rumble, while Hayden jaunts around the planet sightseeing, bank robbing and hitting on women.

There will be many questions that linger and will continue to linger once the credits roll, but I had a blast just the same...

I really liked this movie but unfortunately much like its lead character, played effectively by Hayden Christensen, it moved a little too fast.

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.

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

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

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

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

As a distinct premise, Jumper offers tantalizing possibilities. While the film speaks to some of the far-reaching potential of the power, though, it also follows story formulas that weaken it.

It may be mindless and sexless and humorless, but Jumper jumps.

t's Liman's least charismatic action movie and the least developed, but it still packs some cracking action into its brief running time and lays foundations on which a great franchise could be built.

With exotic locations and good special effects, this film is entertaining enough, given what it is.

All scribes involved understand the superhero formula rather well and have fun presenting a familiar premise (that of transporting characters) into an entertaining ride. But perhaps it's all too familiar.

Doug Liman's worst film but it's still fun.

It's positioned as the first installment of a trilogy and, if Christensen follows through on the character's promise of greater charisma and depth, I'll willingly line up for the next two.

Jumper has all the pieces of an exciting, engaging supernatural slugfest: exotic locations, cool high-tech toys and sweet special effects.

A superpower human without the need to do good for humanity. A 90 minute trailer for Christensen's starring franchise.

[Christensen's] utter vacancy is a bane on Jumper, an otherwise serviceable sci-fi thriller that would have benefited from a compelling center.
