Jumper (2008)



7.5/10

Heard this film was pretty average before watching it, so expectations were well low. I must say though after seeing “ Jumper “ I was more than pleasantly surprised. As well as being a great action, with a whole new concept, “ Jumper “ is a real rice love story. I really loved the whole idea of the Jumpers and the Paladins that are hunting them,

Sameul L Jackson was brilliantly cast in this film, as the hunter with an extremist edge.

Hayden Christensen was also great in his lead role in this film, playing the loner with a secret he cant share. He is a good guy, but is still a guy, which was a nice twist to see in a film that is predominately a love story.

If you like action that has more than a healthy dose of heart, then check “ Jumper “ out!

nice to see a positive review. I had fun with Jumper...loved the locations, can't get enough of Hayden, Rachel and Samuel...energy-injected finale had me driving my VW Bug over the speed limit.

want to know much much more about Jumpers and Paladins.

it was a wise move for the makers of Jumper to keep Christensen's lines as brief as possible.

the movie had some great effects as well, made me feel like i was jumping around with the characters myself.
