Synopsis


Jumper
Following up his blockbuster action hit Mr. and Mrs. Smith, director Doug Liman turns to an entirely new genre -- sci-fi -- for this tale of an underground world of teleporters. Based on the novel by Steven Gould, Jumper concerns David (Hayden Christensen), a young man who quite literally wills himself away from his grim family life by teleporting to another place with the power of his mind. Years later, David is using his powers to raid bank vaults, seduce girls in London, lunch on the pyramids, and surf in Fiji. But he soon discovers that he is not the only one bestowed with this unique gift, and all is not well in the world of jumpers. There are people out there, such as Roland (Samuel L. Jackson), who view jumpers as a threat to all humankind, and have made it their mission in life to eliminate them. After jumping back to Michigan to get reacquainted with his long lost love, Millie (Rachel Bilson), David makes the acquaintance of experienced jumper Griffin (Jamie Bell). Informed by Griffin of a secret between jumpers and a shadowy group that seeks to destroy them, the pair soon finds themselves facing off against a legion of murderous opponents who won't stop fighting until every last jumper has been eliminated. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi

    This movie will give your brain a work out if you let it. Jumping thru time and space. Was that building already built at the time you arrived? Or was it still and empty lot? Perhaps it was the remnants of a previous structure, ravaged by war or a natural disaster (earth quake) and yet to be demolished? If so could you have landed inside the walls or rubble of that structure? I already have "Jumper" in my video collection. This purchase is one of several which are going into a raffle prize package as part of a fund raiser (for our Local Humane Society). You have to love the concept. It my be possible one day in the not too distant future. If you think not, then try this. Watch one episode of the original "StarTrek" look at the "Tri-corder". Now look at your "Smart phone". Coincidence? I think not. Science "fiction" is the precursor to Science "fact". Watch this movie and imagine the possibilities. Let your brain run wild for just a few brief minutes. Who knows the very first "Jumper" might be YOU. The only thing stopping YOU is YOU. Dare to dream, and then make your dreams come true. We enjoyed this movie very much.

    its a journey to go on... the story lacks back fill and insight... the characters plight always in doubt... story ends with reader hanging... might as well read the books... the leaping here to there is fun... they all have stashes of stores everywhere... would that they got this gain more honorably... what I would also do is explore that this is God's will to do this... as the antagonists are stuck in a religious notion that maybe a lie... what if God wants some of His creation of have such powers BUT at a cost and for a planned purpose... its been play time up to now.....best for sci-fi, teen adventure enthusiasts

    This movie is about a boy named David Rice(Hayden Christensen) who can mysteriously disappear and reappear anywhere and anytime.He doesn't really know how or why he's has the power to teleport from one place to another,but one man is going to stop him at any cost his name is Agent Roland Cox(Samuel L. Jackson) who hates jumpers.He tracks them down and kills them before they have time to escape.The movie to me was kind of slow,and it was just unnecessary about where they jump to and why,they use their gifts for their own selfish benefits robbing banks getting out of trouble.The acting was a bit of a bore with nothing really good coming out of anyone in the movie.

    Good Blu-ray

    I have a pretty decent home theater system composed of a Hitachi plasma, Klipsh speakers, and Yamaha receiver. I have constantly been watching movies since I purchase all this equipment about a year ago. Jumper is another movie you will enjoy whether you have a home theater system or not. It is a decent sci-fi/action movie with a good storyline. The blu-ray format is great if you have a Hi-def tv set. This allows for higher quality video and sound than regular DVDs. So if you like the movie Jumper and you have at the minimum a hi-def tv set, I would recommend this movie in the blu-ray format for maximum effects.

    This was in all honestly a great movie. It's not really deep, or takes itself too seriously. It's literally just fantasy fun. Being able to transport yourself whenever and wherever you want is an awesome concept. I watch movies for fun and to have a small escape from from the pressures of everyday life. This movie made that possible and for that I'll keep watching over and over again. Still waiting for that sequel though.

    To his amazement - and, initially, ours - he finds that he has powers of teleportation and can elude his abusers. The first time it happens, he lands in the stacks of the public library. The second time it happens, he lands in his bedroom. When David is in conflict, he visualizes a safe place and - whoosh! - he's there. Soon David is using this gift for his own material benefit. He beams himself into a bank vault, beaming out with sufficient Benjamins to live like a boy billionaire, a hyperspace cadet unrestricted by the space/time continuum.

    Great action movie!

    This was a great action/ sci-fi movie. It had a great plot, great special effects, and Hayden Christiansen and Samuel L. Jackson were terrific. There's even a cameo by Diane Lane. My only complaint (and the reason I didn't give it five stars), is because of the way it ended. There were a lot of unanswered questions and it was very open ended. By that, I mean there's obviously going to be a sequel. If there isn't, I will be very disappointed! But, it's still a lot of fun to watch. I highly recommend it!

    Got this movie when we bought a 3D tv and 3D sony dvd player. I know that there have been some bad reviews but we are casual viewers and new to the 3D world. We enjoyed it very much. I know you can probably buy it somewhere else cheaper, but when we bundled everything, and took advantage of Best Buy's no interest for 18 mos., we wanted to be able to watch a movie right away. My wife and I both feel this is one that we would watch over and over.
