A Quick Tip by FM_ALEX

Sure when it was first released I would have most likely not liked it but since I waited and heard things it saved the film for me. This is not a classic film but the idea behind it is a great premise. I think a sequel is coming and hopefully it surpasses the first film.

CERTAIN THINGS SAVE IT
      JUMPER      I remember seeing the trailers for this film when it was released and thinking "man what a good idea for a film". Of course it is based on a book I believe so I need to pick that up but any way I was never able to see this but finally did. After seeing this finally I have mixed feelings about it but over all enjoyed it. I have heard a lot of things about this movie and actually agree with most of them. What people love about this …

Wiki

Jumper is a 2008 American science fiction film, loosely based on the 1992 science fiction novel of the same name by Steven Gould. The film is directed by Doug Liman and stars Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Bell, Rachel Bilson, Max Thieriot, Annasophia Robb, and Diane Lane. The film follows a young man capable of teleporting to any location as he is chased by a secret society intent on killing him.

The script went through a rewrite prior to filming and the roles for the main characters were changed during production. Jumper was filmed in 20 cities in 14 countries between 2006 and 2007. The film was released on February 14, 2008 and a soundtrack was released on February 19. The film held the first position in its opening weekend with $27.3 million, but despite this success, reviews from critics were generally negative. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes recorded a 16% approval rating and 35/100 on Metacritic. Several novels were developed as tie-ins to the film along with a video game for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and Wii consoles, named Jumper: Griffin's Story. The DVD was released on June 10, 2008, and both Christensen and Liman have spoken of one or more sequels.
