A Movie That Will Have You Jumping

Jumper is based on the 1992 science fiction novel Jumper by Steven Gould. The movie was directed by Doug Liman. It was released into theaters on February 14. It grossed an average of $27.2 million in its opening for the weekend box office. A video game for Jumper was made for Xbox 360, Playstation 2, and Wii, and was released on February 12, 2 days before the movie was released.

The Jump
The movie starts with David Rice as a teenager. He has few friends and keeps to himself. When a guy at school pulls a prank that goes badly wrong, David finds his life to be in grave danger. Here he finds that he has the power to "Jump" or teleport anywhere he wants to. David leaves everything behind and uses his new found power to start a new life. As David (Hayden Christensen) grows older, he begins to rob banks for money. David's carefree life suddenly takes a turn when he runs into a man from the shadowy organization a.k.a Paladins named Roland Cox (Samuel L. Jackson). Roland among others try to hunt down "Jumpers" because they believe that "No one should have the power to be everywhere at once except God". When David realizes that his life is once again in danger, he jumps home and tries to track down the one person he thought he could trust and his long time crush Millie (Rachel Bilson). When David and Rachel meet, David uses his stolen wealth to fly Millie to the one place she has always dreamed of going, Rome. There David meets another Jumper named Griffin (Jamie Bell), who informs him that he tracks down Paladins and kills them because Paladins track down Jumpers and kill them. Once again David runs into Roland, and finds that it will be a fight for his life as well as other Jumpers and the one he loves.

A Jumpin' Movie
Jumper was an exciting movie that made you anxious to find out what happens in the end. Hayden Christenson was once again cute as ever as well as doing a great job playing his part. And face it any movie with Samuel L. Jackson in it is awesome! New comer, Rachel Bilson (Summer Roberts from The O.C.) also did a great job playing alongside her real boyfriend, Hayden Christensen. Diane Lane, Max Thieriot (young David Rice), Jamie Bell, and AnnaSophia Robb (young Millie) also starred in the movie. I really liked the movie so if you like sci-fi movies, than I'm sure you will enjoy this movie.
