Movies we've seen - 'Jumper'.

I'm something of a movie buff. A movie just is a better viewing experience than a DVD on your TV - even a big screen TV.

Went and saw 'Jumper' last night. (Trailer and background here).

It is a film (based on the scifi book) about people who can teleport themselves anywhere.

It was OK. What I liked was that (like 'The Matrix') it is based on a very original 'out-of-left-field' idea. Sadly, it failed to fully capitalise on that fresh originality. The acting for the leads was competent, but not outstanding (Jamie Bell is however a good supporting actor in the role of Griffin). I think Hayden Christensen is over-rated.

Go and see it if you are at a loose end. 3.5 out of 5
