Why ‘Jumper’ might not suck

by W. Andrew Powell

JumperCheck out the trailer for the film Jumper over at Apple.com and tell me what you think. My first instinct is that it’s just another dumb action-type thriller, but I was impressed with a couple of things.

First of all, I love the cast. Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson, Diane Lane, and Rachel Bilson – not a bad start.

Next, it was directed by Doug Liman, the guy behind the The Bourne Identity series of films, and who also did a decent job with Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

And finally, the screenplay was adapted by David S. Goyer, who also wrote the screenplays for Batman Begins and Dark City.

I’ll admit I love this kind of action movie, when it’s done right, but after so many crappy movies in 2008 I’m a bit jaded now. I also have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Christensen.

Should be good. Diane Lane can do no wrong in my book.
