Jumper?


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"

Hahaha! I also thought this movie was a big let-down. The only part I liked was when they were in Rome because I saw this movie in the theater not long after I returned from Rome. People who can mix up Morgan Freeman and your boy SLJ, is beyond me! lol.

That quote is hilarious! Actually, I liked the movie. Probably because I only saw part of it at a friend's house and was left in suspense until we could rent it from Netfilx. So it was nice to see how it ended. However, I didn't understand the kid and dad situation and how he didn't like go back to his room. That was dumb to try to pull at my heartstrings with a lame-o side story about father and son. I also didn't get the water in the library thing.

I also thought this movie was dumb and a big waste of time to watch. It didn't make sense, they could have explained things much better. I thought also if they would have made the guy do "good" things with his abilities, it could have made for a much better movie. Like at the beginning when he is watching some people die in a flood I think on the news and he could have "jumped" to save them. Instead he just uses his powers to steal and wreck things.

This is probably the most funny blog I have read. Way to go. I didnt care much for the movie either, and what kind of mother goes after her son to kill him becouse he has this so unbelievable skill of jumping. Come on...

I just had a really good laugh. I don't think I've ever really read your blog, even though I've known about it for a while. Thanks for the laughs. I even got tears.

So is it SLJ or Morgan Freeman? You said SLJ but the quote you posted said Morgan Freeman

Ok...I looked it up and it was Sammy boy. No wonder that person liked it, she was talking about the wrong movie. She liked a movie with Morgan Freeman.
