Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Jumper is clean, clear, and spare, lacking only a semi-satisfying ending.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average 'Jumper: The Prequel,' a movie so silly you may find yourself giggling helplessly even as you wish you could magically transport yourself almost anywhere else in the world but where you are, in front of the screen showing it.

USA Today Full Review
Average Though the film starts out intriguingly, it never lives up to its promise, mostly because so little is explained. It's as if the rules and parameters of the story are being made up as the movie goes along.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 164 moviegoers:
TEENS:These are very good, but not quite great, reviews. This movie is clearly targeted at younger males and there are more "Good" and "Very Good" reviews from the males than I like to see. What this means is that you guys will enjoy "Jumper" very much, but you probably won't love it. The female reviews are pretty much the same. I have no problem recommending "Jumper," especially on the big screen, since most will enjoy it very much and no one should totally dislike it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:These reviews, both male and female, are somewhat disappointing, but certainly not bad. There are too few very high reviews and too many average and below average reviews. Still, approximately half enjoyed it very much. Of the remaining half, most enjoyed it somewhat. Just a few truly disliked it. Recommended, but not highly.
ADULTS:Decent but not great reviews from both the males and the females. There are too few very high reviews and quite a few somewhat low reviews. What these reviews tell me is that about half of you will truly enjoy "Jumper" and half will feel it's an average to below average movie. I feel this movie is best enjoyed on the big screen, due to the incredible scenery, so a lower priced matinee may be best if you're at all unsure about this movie.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
From New York to Tokyo, from the ruins of Rome to the heart of the Saharan Desert, anywhere is possible for David Rice (HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN), until he begins to see that his freedom is not total, that he’s not alone . . . but part of an ongoing, global war that threatens the very survival of his rare and extraordinary kind.

David Rice has grown up with a mysterious power of which many have dreamed. He is completely and utterly mobile, able to zap through wormholes in the space-time fabric to any city, any building, any place at all that his mind desires. In the blink of an eye, he can “jump” from one side of the earth to the other and back again – he can tour twenty different sunsets in one night, he can have breakfast on the Egyptian Sphinx, spend the day surfing in Australia, then pop over to Paris for dinner and enjoy dessert in Japan. He can pass through walls and locked bank safes and enter the most forbidden chambers. So far, he has used his powers to run away from his past, to take advantage of unlimited wealth, to remain fiercely independent. He’s never known limits or boundaries or consequences. Or true connection. Until now.

But when David discovers another young man like himself, a fiery, globetrotting rebel named Griffin (JAMIE BELL), the truth of his existence begins to dawn. He is not just a lone freak of nature, but part of a long line of genetic anomalies known as Jumpers, none of whom are safe. Now, David has now been identified by the secret organization sworn to kill him and all Jumpers. And he is about to be relentlessly pursued in a chase that will literally bound around the planet – as he becomes a key player in an unseen battle that has been raging, invisible to most of humanity, through the ages.
