From Amazon.co.uk

As preposterous action movies go, Jumper is pleasantly unpretentious and breezily entertaining. A young man named David (Hayden Christensen) discovers he has the power to teleport (or "jump") anywhere he can visualize. After using this power to steal and make a comfortable life for himself, he pursues the girl he longed for in school (Rachel Bilson, The O. C.). But as he does so, another jumper (Jamie Bell, Billy Elliot) and a pack of fanatical jumper-hunters called paladins (led by a white-haired Samuel L. Jackson) crashes into David's freewheeling life. Jumper wastes no time trying to explain how jumping works or delving into the hows and whys of the paladins; this is an alluring fantasy of power directed at a pell-mell pace by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Go). There's a brief moment when it feels like the movie will bog down in romance and vague gestures towards character development--happily, that's the moment when Bell appears and the whole movie shifts into overdrive. You might wish that Bell and Christensen had swapped roles; Bell has a far more engaging personality, and Christensen's bland good looks might better suit a more aggressive character. Nonetheless, Jumper has oodles of dynamism and nifty visual effects to propel its comic-book storyline forward. A variety of recognizable actors in bit parts (such as Diane Lane and Kristen Stewart, Panic Room) suggest that the filmmakers are laying the groundwork for sequels. Based on a critically-acclaimed science-fiction novel by Steven Gould. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com

Product Description

Sci-fi action blockbuster with Hayden Christensen as a young man able to teleport himself to any place on earth. After discovering he has a genetic anomaly that allows him to teleport wherever he wants, teenager David Rice (Christensen) embarks on a hedonistic lifestyle of girls, money and travel, indulging his every whim, and using his power to fund his desires. It's not long, however, before he discovers that others share his power, and that the underground community of 'Jumpers' are being targetted by 'Paladins', a group dedicated to their destruction. Pursued by a Paladin named Roland (Samuel L. Jackson), Rice and fellow jumper Griffin (Jamie Bell) soon find themselves fighting for their lives as their sworn enemies close in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but very shallow. 11 Jun 2008
By Mr. D. Bell VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Jumper is a film that works because of its simplicity rather try and weave together numerous sub-plots that end up going no-where. It feels very much like a pilot for a TV show that you actually want to keep watching to see what happens next. Admittedly the story is paper thin but it moves at such a pace it's difficult to care. The chemistry is good between Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson and feels natural.

The real star however, is Jamie Bell. He is very charismatic and he brings the film to life every time he is on screen. His accent is very strange though, and seems to be constantly changing. I'm not sure if this is intentional or not, but it doesn't really matter. Some of the action scenes are breathtaking and the "jump" looks fantastic every time you see it.

Overall this is a mindless action film that feels like the start of something much bigger. There is no doubt that a sequel could flesh out the characters and provide a genuinely interesting film. If you prefer films with numerous plot strands then steer clear as this will bore you to tears. If however you want to see a popcorn film, then this is a must see.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3d Conversion 20 Aug 2013
By Phil
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Just a few words about the 3D re-release.

This film might seem an odd choice for 3D conversion, as it was not a major 5-star blockbuster. However, it uses a more economical JVC system that can produce lower-cost conversions at 1080p quality for Blu-ray only release. The same system was used for I, Robot and apparently for the forthcoming Predator 3D release.

Many 3D fans are vehemently anti-conversion. However, this one does work quite well. There is little if anything extending in front of the screen, but that's not the modern 3D style anyway. There is good depth to many shots and most of it works out OK. The 3D seems a little less evident in some fast moving action scenes, especially towards the end, but I was happy with the effect overall. I was watching it on an 84 inch screen viewed from 8-9 feet away and I did notice a couple of glitches, but not enough to worry about. I had seen the film a couple of years ago in 2D, but I definitely enjoyed seeing it again in 3D.

If you are fussy about 3D conversions, then I suppose you had better give this a miss. If not, and you fancy seeing this in 3D, then it's worth the money in my humble opinion.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
"Jumper" is available in the 'States' in two variants - the 2009 original and the 2013 '3D' reissue.

But fans should note that both of these American 20th Century Fox releases are REGION A LOCKED - so will not play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

Best stick with the UK variants which of course will give no playback problems...and feature great picture quality...

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Idea Lost In Execution 23 Dec 2013
By Charles Vasey TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
There are some splendid effects in this tale of teleporters but they are married to an almost teen Disney level of personal relationships. The result is that it takes far too long to get to the nub of the plot.

Format:DVD
Refer back to the original book (not the film-based re-write) and you'll see just how the movie takes a scared but plucky kid, intelligent, bookish, with a firm sense of right and wrong, escaping an abusive father and longing for his departed mother... and replaces him with a smirking self-satisfied empty greedy grubby little man and a very unconvincing plot about jumpers and peladons. Doug Liman's film scoops out the soul, excitement, personal discovery and scariness of being alone and different in an uncaring and selfish world with a bland, incoherent yarn involving unlikeable people. The quality of the film dips the instant it segues to the first appearance of Hayden Christensen and from that point survives only on the strength of shoehorned effects, John Powell's perky score, location prn and an against-current turn by Jamie Bell. Even mutated into a fantasy action flick this film fails to sparkle simply because the main characters are self-centred or devoid of any depth. In the end, you simply don't care, and it's almost worth a second watch just to see how so many promising elements fall flat. Fans of the book will probably daydream wistfully of an alternative reality where Max Thieriot's younger David Rice (already c.20 at the time of filming!) follows the book's plot of every lonely teen's greatest dream and nightmare rolled into one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Jump to the conclusion - this is a shocker 6 April 2009
Format:DVD
Difficult to know where to begin with this complete and utter turkey, but let's (ahem) jump right to it...

This movie makes no sense whatsoever - not always a problem i grant you, but a modicum of story does help, some narrative as to what is actually going on is also useful and a semblance of script usually appreciated. Jumper has none of these elements, in fact it has no plot to speak of, no character development and as far as I can tell, no point whatsoever. What it does have in spades, is lots of fast paced editing, running around, explosions, car chases, and the incredible sulk Hayden Christiansen displaying the sort of statuesque acting talent that made him so irresistible in Star Wars. To a lesser degree there is lots of Jamie Bell wandering around aimlessly looking for his lost career (and accent) and (finally) Sam L Jackson looking ridiculous in a painted on white haired barnet. What these things signifed i'm not sure, in fact I couldn't have cared less, but what i did realise is that 80 minutes can seem like a lifetime when watching something as dumb and uninvolving as this.

Hard to pick any positives from the film at all really other than the fact that it really made me laugh, the music was so-so, and that the I managed to get to the pub before last orders. This really is an absolute mess of a movie, featuring career low performances from Jackson and Bell, yet another performance of staggering ineptitude from Christiansen and the sound of Doug Liman's career (Go, The Bourne Supremacy) going to the dogs. It's really that bad.

I saw this film on TV about 4 years ago and found it on Amazon. It's a good film if you enjoy sci-fi. A little twisting plot and well worth adding to your DVD collection. Enjoy!
