Default Jumper ( the movie )

I saw this today and thought it was pretty good.

Did anyone else feel that it was more like a TV pilot rather than a one-off movie? The musical score was very TV pilot-like as well as the narration throughout. The premise and idea of being able to zap about was very cool except being chased by Paladins.

I hope to watch it soon. But, the movie was released in FEB, so I'm sure the budget was not that big, and some things had to suffer, such as the Score, and some writing.

I just saw The Jumper last night. I really enjoyed it. All the different places the jumpers visited was cool too. I couldn't take my eyes of Hayden.

Haven't seen it yet. Wanting to go.

(The fact that most of the reviewers for the TV and newspapers have canned it just makes me want to see it more. Mostly because they're all dickheads.)

Well it was number one at the boxoffice this past weekend, I saw the trailer but it didn't make me want to go see it.

Might phrase it a bit differently but this pretty much sums it up for me. I go to a movie to be ENTERTAINED, not find some deep and thought provoking meaning/statement on life.

So basically, the characters are people who have the same power as Nightcrawler from the X-Men but can go farther with their jumps?

I saw the trailer and thought it looked pretty lame. I could be wrong so if i find an evening with nothing else to see i may be surprised.

I watched Jumper today, and I really enjoyed it.

The ending was kind of sad though.
