Review: Jumper

Director Doug Liman delivers a high paced sci-fi/action flick that doesn’t disappoint. Since his movie Go (1999), he’s made a great track record for himself, making movies with a moderate budget, but while retaining high production value also earning high returns (usually double the budget, see The Bourne Identity and Mr. & Mrs Smith). This movie will continue that trend.
Starring Hayden Christensen as a teleporter, makes for a dynamic atmosphere, where the viewer gets to join the visits to various big cities. The screenplay is half character driven and half story driven (though it’s still a not too complicated cat-mouse chasing game), and combines a good mix of special effects. Save for the sudden easy ending, there’s not a moment of boredom, and it’s one of the best pop-corn flick in recent months.8-.
