it was awesome but I wish it was longer
Samuel L acted well and his stunts were amazing
Hayden did well embracing his powers along with Griffin
the teleportation effects were out of sight

really cool movie despite the reviews

I want a Jumper 2
I Love the 90's

        It was ok. Nothing worth seeing twice. It felt kind of rushed.

            My review from IMDB:

            Possible spoilers ahead

            I had great expectations, perhaps they were too great.

            Overall, when the movie ended, my gut reaction was "that's it?? Really??" I felt the movie had great potential, especially with Samuel L. Jackson in the villain role. And with Diane Lane on board, how could this movie miss the mark? Unfortunately, Jackson's character Roland (that's the best name they could come up with?) is pretty static. There's no depth to him. There's no reason why he hates jumpers. He just hates them. And wants to kill them. The character isn't sufficiently fleshed out, except for a flash-in-the-pan comment about some sort of religious zealotry, so essentially what you have is a soulless Samuel L. Jackson as a bounty hunter. And Diane Lane's role pretty much isn't more than a glorified walk-on, as she gets little more than five minutes of actual screen time.

            And I just couldn't get involved with the characters. Our hero/anti-hero, as portrayed by Hayden Christenson, goes from being a lovable loser to a loathsome lothario within the first ten minutes of the movie. I found myself expecting him, as he watched the news reports about drowning people to teleport and help those people. Instead, he goes back to counting the money he has stolen. Basically, any love I had for him from before was squandered.

            And Rachel Bilson's Millie is pretty much a braindead set piece, there for Hayden to have sex with and then develop some minor moralistic complex which requires him to save her. I can suspend my disbelief to a degree, but after Hayden's been thought to be dead for seven years, he just walks up to her in a bar, and the only question she's really concerned about is if he is or is not actually a banker. No "hey where've ya been for the past seven years?" No "hey, wow, thought you drowned!" Not to mention he gets her goodies after less than 24 hours.) I know this movie is set up for a sequel, since the finale managed not to tie up any of the loose ends at all, up to and including the well-being of the other jumper. But to be frank, I don't know if I'll be motivated to set down 8 bucks for the sequel.
