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

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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars jump.for her love. 13 Aug 2008
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
loosely based on a series of books by steven jay gould, this is an action/science fiction movie, and first in a proposed trilogy telling one long story. David is a high school loner who pines for a female classmate. then one day caught in a life or death situation he finds he has the natural ability to teleport from place to place. leaving people thinking he's dead and making plenty of visits to bank vaults to get money, he's able to set himself up in a nice life as an independent world jumping playboy.

but only then years later does he discover that he's not the only one who can do this, and there's a secret organisation out there who target those who can. on the run and trying to get together with his long lost sweetheart only an uneasy alliance with a more experienced jumper called griffin might save the day. but will he go as far into the war between jumpers and the organisation as griffin has?

not a movie with any great depth, just an attempt at a decent piece of action entertainent. and to set up a franchise. it just about succeeds on both counts. hayden christiensen does bring a certain vulnerability to the role that means you can just about relate to his character [looks like a few other reviewers disagree with me on that, but to each their own]. rachel bilson and samual l jackson do their best with slightly underwritten roles as the love interest and the chief bad buy. but jamie bell livens up the film as bad boy giffin with an immensely appealing and entertaining performance.

not a great movie, but not a bad start to the franchise. hopefully there'll be a sequel that can build on this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Routine 25 July 2008
Format:DVD
Having seen this film trailed at the cinema I was keen to see it when it was released on DVD. The premise of the eponymous `jumpers' leaping Sam Beckett-like through space was an intriguing one; although unfortunately this was pretty much all the film had to offer. Hayden Christiansen's wooden delivery hasn't changed from his stint as the young Darth Vader, and Billy Elliot's Jamie Bell, although providing a bit more dynamism, struggles to lift a film full of limp dialogue and long stretches of meandering conversation. On the plus side, Samuel L Jackson is as menacing as ever in his role as persecutor of the leapers (a `Paladin' as the film has it); sinister and brooding with his hair dyed shockingly white and brandishing an electrically charged whip with which he prevents the jumpers from moving before brutally killing them.
The film does have its moments: For example when Bell's experienced leaper mocks Christiansen's newbie and when the latter deposits his childhood nemesis in a bank vault to be found by the police. The chief problem with the film is that it doesn't really know where to go; when we discover that Christiansen's long-lost mother is a paladin there is the expectation that the film has further layers but these are not followed through, and at 84 minutes there is ample room to extend what is ultimately a disappointingly truncated movie.
