Movie Review: Jumper

    As a teenager, David Rice (Max Thieriot, young David) lives with his father William (Michael Rooker), after his mother, Mary (Diane Lane), left when David was only five. He has no friends in school except for Millie (AnnaSophia Robb, young Millie), whom he has a crush on, and Jack (Gared Bennett) in their home town of Ann Arbor, Michigan. When Jack throws a snow globe that he gave to Millie onto a frozen river and David falls through while trying to retrive it, he discovers he can “Jump” – teleport to anywhere on the planet which he’s previously visited or visualized from a photograph. His first jump ends him up in Ann Arbor’s local library. Using his ability he leaves his childhood home behind and sets himself up in New York City, and steals money from a local bank after seeing the inside of the vault and using it as a Jump point. Over the course of the next 8 years, David (Hayden Christensen) lives life to excess, Jumping all across the world and living a consequence free life.

I don’t know about the professional review of this movie, but I find this movie super boring.

Apparently, not much explanations was given, just fighting and teleporting all over the place.

Rating: 2/5.

May I add, I was jumping all around throughout the whole movie as well.
