Jumper can't make the leap from cool concept to good movie.

Jumper is a movie with no special powers. Despite its slick and sleek approach to extraordinary events, it remains quite ordinary and remarkably nondescript.
November 20, 2013
A movie that has a tremendous premise and awesome special effects that are ultimately hindered by a script that prevents its characters from every fully taking off.

Light entertainment is all about playing to an audience's fantasy. There have been quite a few well-crafted and entertaining films that have started the same way and gotten away with it, out of sheer creativity. Jumper is not one of those films.

A better filmmaker would have given the material some kind of vertiginous rhythm, yet Liman just plods humorlessly, flavorlessly.

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.

Jumper is a popcorn movie, but without salt or butter. Too many of the kernels remain unpopped. It's like the Saturday matinees of yore. But by the time you've crossed the lobby after seeing Jumper, you've forgotten it.

An elegantly idiotic sci-fi thriller that initially feels as though it might have derived from Philip K Dick -- but lacks the master's lysergic idiosyncracy.

Jumper is almost in too much of a hurry at times and logic and cohesion suffer as a consequence.

Director Liman is a major talent. He deserves better material to mold.

The movie isn't terrible and I certainly liked the superhero aspect of it, but the romance doesn't work and it has a rushed, sloppy feel throughout.

Sam relishes doing super-mean and ready to rumble, while Hayden jaunts around the planet sightseeing, bank robbing and hitting on women.
June 11, 2008
"Jumper" is a plodding, action-less mess, in which we'd only be interested if we could comprehend what the heck was going on.
June 7, 2008
The worst sci-fi concept since The Adventures of Pluto Nash placed Eddie Murphy on the moon.

If Jumper too often feels like a special-effects demo reel in search of a story, at least the eye candy is pretty darn sweet. [Blu-Ray]
