    Talk about disappointing. Director Doug Liman exuded style and cool in "Swingers," "Go" and "The Bourne Identity." He lost his way in the star bloat of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," and now his mojo is buried in this amped-up sci-fi chase flick. show more

    Goes south as a sci-fi film. show more

    It doesn't help that the performances are bland (particularly those of Christensen and Bilson) and that what comes out of their mouths is uninspired. Short on imagination and anchored by a wan hero, Jumper is a flight of fancy that never fully takes off. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Jumper, based on the novel by Steven Gould, re-defines -- downward -- the notion of dreadful. It does so by dispensing with everything a movie needs for a shot at being merely awful. Dramatic development? None. Entertaining dialogue? Ditto. Internal logic? Puhleez. Intriguing characters? No characters, thus no intrigue. Interesting performances? Essentially none, though with an asterisk. show more

    Fast is a good quality in an action/adventure. But there is lightning-paced and then there is warp speed. Doug Liman's Jumper is the latter, a not-so-good quality in an action/adventure for the simple reason that the audience can't figure out what's going on. show more

    Deep into Hollywood's Dumb Season comes one of its dumbest offerings. show more

    Jumper proves disappointingly inert. All the state-of-the-art visual effects in the world can't compensate for spotty plotting and bland characters that prevent an intriguing premise from going the distance. show more

    Liman applies the same frenetic approach to action scenes that made "The Bourne Identity" such an engaging and exciting affair. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    The film LOOKS great, but at a brisk 88 minutes, there's no time to fill in back story, from the epic history of paladin persecution to the deeply personal mystery of David's mother, and the cliffhanger ending is so abrupt that the movie seems bizarrely truncated. show more

    But what can you do with Hayden Christensen? He's as close as we have to an android actor. It's all a chore for him. He never looks sufficiently scared, impressed, or surprised by any of this. show more

    I thought this movie was ok, but nothing special. It had all the elements of the typical action movie. Obviously theres action, drama with girlfriend, language from a British actor, more action. Itr was so-so.

    Jumper is a pretty good action/ sci-fi film and is a good flick to check out if your a super-hero fan. I think they could of chose a better actor and to make the movie a little longer. But Jumper aint great, but it's not terrible!

    Umm, where do i start? i first heard of jumper from a friend. i went online and saw the poster and i thought it would be an okay movie. boy was i wrong. it was a FANTASTIC movie. i really wasn't expecting anything like what was in the movie. i loved the story line, i loved the characters, the action was amazing along with the special affects. the movie comes out on DVD tonight at midnight and i plan on getting it. no ifs ands or buts. basically if ur the kinda of person who likes what they like give it a try, if you like it, you like it. if you don't okay. but it is in my top 10 fav movies.
