Hmm...you have tickled my curiosity bone.  I must see this "Television."

When I first saw the ads for Jumper I thought to myself "Geez they made a sequel to The Covenant", so there was no way I was gonna waste my money to see this when cable premiere is less than 12 months away

I'm going to see this on Friday. Making fun of Hayden's "acting" will be so much fun.

Hayden is a good actor is some of his movies. Then other times it is like "What was that?" Star Wars (good), this (I don't think so). This was disappointing for me, had some good parts, but they were not good enough to make this movie good. Oh well, I really need to listen to my gut when it comes to previews. When I have doubts, I know there is something wrong and this movie proved it.

Will anyone tell me what is wrong with all those ideas about infections, viruses and genetic anomalies going on those days? I know its supposed to be the future scenario but is becoming tiring.

Ah, another great idea for a movie, raped by Hollywood. It would have been just fine if it was about a young man discovering he has the power to teleport and how it affects his life (which is what the book the movie is "based" on was about). But NO! They have to add a bunch of uncalled for action scenes, have him being chased by a secret society, and then to top it all off, they cast the actor who ruined the Star Wars franchise for us all...

I saw this movie yesterday, and I did not really think it was bad movie. I think it might be The Best Bad Movie in one way: I wish they would have told us how Jumper is able to do The Teleporting thing...

Well, some complained that the movie was too short to tell us information because the pacing of this movie is really fast, while others just liked it because it was a quick action movie to kill your time for 85 minutes...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: The failure to explain the whole "teleportation" concept was just one of this film's major problems. The biggest one was that it constantly "jumped" all over the place (literally) with little or no sense of time, place or logic. I'd have to rate this one of the most confusing films I've seen this year...and one of the most boring. In a time/space continuum feet not unlike its characters' teleportation abiltities, JUMPER somehow makes 85-minutes feel longer than three-and-a-half hours! 

FOOTNOTE: I also found myself wondering throughout the film (since the movie itself barely held my interest) if all those exotic world locations (the Roman colliseum, Big Ben's clockface, etc.) were genuine, or achieved digitally. The idea of film-makers pitching the concept of allowing Hayden Christensen to sit in a lawn chair atop the head of the Egyptian sphynx (and then having to figure out how to do it without damaging a historic site) struck me as hilarious -- the only amusement the film offered...

I liked the concept, but it felt like it wasn't thought out through. They just had this concept and decided to create scenes for it and oh, there has to be a love interest and a bad guy (or guys) without any real clear reason. Samuel Jackson does so many movies, he couldn't find something better to do than this stinker?

The Movie Preview Critic reviewed the trailer and for the most part agrees of the over using of the jumping effect. Mine you, this is just him judging the trailer, it's more of a debate of the current state of sci-fi movies.

This is an obvious Worst Picture contender; but I'm too cheap to get a membership.  I just wish I hadn't wasted 2 hours of my evening after work.  I'd have been more productive taking a dump for that period of time!

This sounds exactly like a Gayden Crystalmeth or Natalie Shortman movie. 
Did he finally give up acting? Not yet? Damn!

It's evident that Hayden had not yet cleared the "Darth Vader" from his system when he made this movie --  His "playing the hero" wasn't up to what I had anticipated.

This film was No. 5 on Moviefone's Top 10 Worst Movies of 2008...AND IT DIDN'T MAKE THE NOMINATING BALLOT!?  I don't believe it!

I remember Hayden being under the Worst Actor catagory and rightfully so. "Jumper" is now playing on HBO this month, so that will give voters a chance to see just how bad of a job he really did.
