David Rice used to be your average chump. His word, not mine. But then he discovered that he could jump; transport himself instantly from one place to another. And suddenly his world is fabtastic. Money is easy, he simply jumps into a bank vault and jumps away with cash. Wants a holiday, or a change of scenery, then all he does is jumps somewhere new.

It actually sounds kinda ok. But to be honest this film sucks. Sucks sucks sucks. End of review. Short and sweet, but perfectly to the point :)

    oh dear…

    it does sound kinda cool, but ol' hayden christensen is capable of some awful acting… and thats not even to mention what the director or script writer of this film is capable of.

    also, i couldn't shake the feeling that they'd made a film about nightcrawler… but without nightcrawler in it.

    That's it exactly JP. Only with a nonsense plot that they never bothered to explain properly. It could've been some nonsense fun. Instead it was nonsense crap :)

    I was going to go but then I found out it wasn't about the item of clothing. Can you imagine that, an entire film that took as its subject a woolly sweater? It would be stunningly original. I might make it myself.

    Any suggestions for taglines?

    "Feel the static."

    "Granny knitted it, but God made it".

    "It's cold outside."

    "As close as you can get".

    Hello, Fency! How are you? I haven't seen Jumper, but my son Van said it was god-awful; however, I didn't quite know how to take that, considering in the same breath he said he liked the new RAMBO. I despair. If YOU liked the new Rambo, I may just have to go ahead and kill myself.

    The only movie I've liked Hayden Christensen in was Shattered Glass. I LOVED that movie, in fact, and thought he did a great job as a sociopath. I like movies about sociopaths and mentally ill people, as long as they're not serial killers, or serial rapists, or cereal eaters. A movie about a cereal eater would be bo-o-oring. UNLESS he was a sociopath. What do YOU think? xo

    I was initially impressed by the look with the trailer, but the more I thought about the casting the less inclined I was to see the film. When the author of the book this was based on (a book which has received some nice praise) started wearing "Don't blame a book for its movie" t-shirts and starting distancing himself from the film I knew it was a no-go. Glad I haven't broken down and wasted any money on this one.
