Based on the best selling novel by Steven Gould “Jumper”, this
science fiction thriller stars Hayden Christensen (Star Wars Episode
III: Revenge of the Sith) as David, a young man who unknowingly
discovers that he has the power to teleport himself at will when he falls into an
ice lake during high school.
As David leaves his drunken father, the
movie fast forwards into time as he begins to abuse his
powers by stealing money and treasures and begins living the high life.
Unbeknown to David, he fails to cover his trail properly and is
brought to the attention of the Paladins, a secret organisation who
have sworn to eliminate Jumpers which is led by the charismatic
Samuel L. Jackson (Snakes on a Plane).
Forming an alliance with
another jumper called Griffin (King Kong), his girlfriend is
unwittingly becomes kidnapped in an attempt to lure out the Jumper
that leads to a dramatic ending and a shocking secret for our hero
that leaves the movie open for a sequel.
Featuring action, humour and a
touch of romance, Jumper may be a clichéd science fiction film but
is quite engaging and original that will have you on the edge of
your seat from start to finish.
With a perfect video and audio transfer to DVD, Jumper
contains some quite impressive special features from audio
commentary by Director Doug Liman and Writer/Producer Simon Kinberg,
some behind the scene featurettes and interesting Deleted Scenes
that nicely round this DVD off.
A definitely entertaining title!
