Jumper

Jumper
Starring Hayden Christensen, Rachel Bilson,Jamie Bell
PG-13 for sequences of intense action violence, some language and brief sexuality

Jumper is about a young man, David Rice (Christensen), who learned when he was a teenager that he could "jump", or teleport, wherever he chose. He freely jumped as he wish, at one point even stealing money straight from a bank! He was living the sweet life in New York as a bachelor, going to England to club, going to Fiji to surf, and coming back home to New York in time for dinner. But when a mysterious man starts catching on to what David has been up to, he decides to flee his expensive lifestyle and reconnect with his hometown in Michigan, which includes reconnecting with his lost love, Millie (Bilson). The mysterious man is persistant - and violent, and continuously tracks David down, putting everyone David loves in danger...

If you're looking for a light, fun action flick, this is definately for you. Christensen isn't the strongest actor, but hey, he was in Star Wars, so who gives a crap, right? Rachel Bilson has proven to be a talented young actress, though seemingly withering away. She has a raw quality to her acting that is quite different from most. It's hard to describe, but I truly enjoyed her performance. Stand out performance: the talented Jamie Bell, who costarred as the "other" jumper, the smartmouthed loner Griffin. You may recognize this Brit from the Wake Me Up When September Ends video. All and all, it was an entertaining movie. It had few laughs, lots of action, and many, many brilliant special effects. As I said, if you're looking for something light, go for Jumper. If you're looking for a deeper, darker action film, this possibly isn't the movie for you. Jumper seems a bit aimless at times, but still takes you on a fun journey around the world and back.

2 1/2 out of 5 stars
