We went and saw that new Hayden Christensen movie Jumper a few nights ago. It's the one where the guy can teleport to any place in the world. I liked it. Brian didn't. It's got the same director as the Bourne Identity, which I didn't know going in, but made sense afterward.
I found myself really liking the beginning, where the star figures out he has a power and then goes into the toying phase with it. But, then again, I always like that part in these types of superhero, comic-book-style movies. Once the conflict started, it kinda went down hill. I didn't think Samuel L. Jackson was particularly strong. Does it bother anyone else that he plays the same part in all his movies? Overall, though, I think the good outweighed the bad. The special effects were cool. And there was still a lot of wow in the action sequences and in the locations they chose. As long as you don't expect more than a fun action movie, you won't be disappointed. Overall grade: B-
