Movie - Jumpers

Disappointment their name is 'Jumper'. This was possibly one of the most promising and disappointing movies in the box office. For all the cool, shiny trailers, media hype and SAMUEL L JACKSON, this movie bombed worse than 'Snakes on a' Plane.
Don't get me wrong. It was a good idea, but honestly, any depth or story the movie might have pretended to have was lost in the special effects.
It seemed as though the entire thing was watered down. The plot progression was predictable and the character's actions seemed reckless, yes, even those of Samuel. You couldn't find their motivation but what you could find...was a lot of dizzying camera angles and 'whooshy' effects. So, I would suggest that you take a pass on this one or wait until it comes on cable.

Worth seeing: Juno

Peace!

Oh no! Isn't that the movie with that yummy Hayden Christenson (sp?). Well, I'll know not to watch it for the plot at least, just for the eye candy.
