At one point early on in this, Hayden Christiansen's 'character' is seen using his powers to move around his flat because he can't be arsed to walk. This is a metaphor for the whole film. All this power, and all he does is save himself the effort of traditional transport to go to places we can all go to and to steal money to fund it. A sort of unusual thief on a permanent gap year. That's it, really. Proof that, no matter how lucky you are (winning the lottery springs to mind), if you haven't got the imagination it's wasted on you. This could have been a good film and the seeds of development are in the meeting up of Christiansen with fellow jumper, Jamie Bell. Unfortunately, his 'character' is also so woefully underdeveloped and unattractive that the storyline quickly palls. Sure, Christiansen's got the money, the travel and the girl. But didn't he get that in real life anyway by just being a piss poor actor?

The effects are solid and the premise is cool. That's where the praise ends. With one-dimensional characters, an uneven plot and lame performances, Jumper just isn't good at all.

Cool Mix Of Fantasy & Reality With A Little Touch Of Science Fiction That Isn't Explored, In It's Place Is The Emotive Running-From-Your Past Story. Very Enjoyable Because It Doesn't Get Too Wrapped Up In Itself Or The Science & Fantasy Bit. But Admittedly, The Jumpy Story Of Jumper Bandied Together With His Teleportation Worm-Hole Super-Power Leads To Endless Plot-Holes.. Go In With A Good-Natured, Who Cares Attitude & It Is Still Fun To Watch, Purely For The Endless Array Of Set Locations & Final Fight Scene...Which Clearly Due To Budget Constraints Can't Go On Endlessly Teleporting. Ha!

A good concept terribly executed.

Awesome idea with interesting moments. But, as a whole, it just dragged and dragged. Not terrible but not worth watching more than once.

Good movie definitely makes you think what would you do with powers like these are my downfall I have is the ending is not very good it is definitely set up for a sequel that whenever God and probably never will so I wish it would have ended a little different

Pretty good popcorn flick if you have nothing better to do. If you want to watch a movie that you've never watched or want to try something new watch this. This movie got me through an hour. It wasn't the best movie but again watch it you have nothing to do for an hour.

It has an exciting premise, but Jumper squanders it's potential with bland characters that lack depth and uninteresting action sequences. There's nothing to see here.

unwatchable. the premise its that a jumper can go back to a place once they visited it. so you need to loose half of your life going to places in the world to then be able to go back into. the protagonist jumps to so many different places in the world that apparently there is few spots missing from his jumping places.

Fast moving sci-fi action movie that moves at such a pace you barely have time to really think about the plot, which is probably just as well. In fairness there's a lot of fun to be had here and its nice to see Hayden Christiansen in a role thats not irritating.

After so many bad reviews I went in to this not expecting much but yet again I found myself enjoying it, A pretty good story but the plot is same old stuff, The effects were ok but the ending was very lackluster, Not greatly acted and a few plot holes don't help things but its run time is short and it's an easy watch but nothing memorable.

This is not a movie to be mesmerized by. Rather, it's a fun way to kill an hour and a half of your time. (occasionally)

A great concept ruined by poor execution

Jumper is a really annoying movie. The concept is good and they have the setup for what could be a good movie (I suspect because it is based on a book), but then the director turns it into a typical action movie. It's not even a good action movie. The most annoying part is the ending. The main character meets his mom that left him when he was five. He basically just says hello, they hug briefly, and he jumps off to a beach with his slutty girlfriend. It's such a shitty ending that I don't even think I really spoiled anything for you. The opportunity to impart substance on the movie was staring them in the face, and they decided to spit at it. A good movie would have at least made an attempt at an emotional connection with the audience, but Jumper doesn't try. A son tracking down his mother that abandoned him had potential to make people feel something, but it didn't. The Simpsons did a better job with that plot line, and I'm only scratching the surface of the problems by focusing on a big one. The writing and directing are awful. I imagine the few decent parts were ripped from the pages of the book.
