I rented this movie called Jumper recently. It's about this guy who can teleport for some reason, and this other guy who wants to kill him for some reason. The teleporter, or "jumper", is played by Hayden Christensen. The guy who wants to kill him is played by Samuel L. Jackson. And the crazy next door neighbor is played by Jar Jar Binks.

This was possibly one of the dumbest movies I have ever seen. What bugged me most was that they never explained how or why this guy was able to teleport. He could just do it for some reason. They also never explained why SLJ, as I like to call him, wanted to kill the jumper. Supposedly his people have hunted jumpers for hundreds of years or something. I think he was just jealous. Also they never explained why old Sammy Jack, as I like to call him, had white hair. It looks really stupid.

Another thing that bothered me was at the first of the movie when the jumper was in High School they used a different actor to portray him, and he looked nothing like Hayden C. He's not that old. They could have just used him for the high school scenes as well. What was funny is that his friends from high school thought he had died, and when he came back years later no one was surprized to see him.

There were a lot of other dumb things in this movie that I can't remember now. Oh yeah, like the time he teleported not just himself, but a whole apartment into a body of water and then into a library.

I was just reading some of the member reviews for this movie on blockbuster online. Some people actually liked this movie. Here is a quote that I found quite hillarious...
"I found this movie to be one of the top movies that I have watched this year, full of action and very believable. I'm a huge Morgan Freeman fan and he just seems to bring you into the movie w/the part that he plays"
