The Movie Jumper - it didn't land well

Entertaining and...
thoroughly disappointing

I could say all these things about this movie, preceded by the phrase, "Don't go see this movie because"----

1. The script has holes bigger than the space between Paris Hilton's ears.

2. The movie has a thoroughly unsatisfying end, mainly because it is obviously set up for a sequel that will never happen (Sam Jackson being deposited on the side of a cliff, Diane Lane the paladin giving her jumper son Chrisitian Haydensen (oops, got his name backwards---its Hayden Chistiansen, not that it matters) a head start, the irish jumper disappearing from the last ten minutes of the movie, etc).

3. Christian Haydensen's, I mean Hayden Christiansen's, acting is still pretty wooden.

4. They never explain just why the hell it is that anyone is bothering to pursue these jumpers. And if anyone should be pursuing them, it should be the U.S. treasury deparment and the secret service.

However, I have a fondness for Sci-fi movies, even bad ones. So, if you like sci-fi, go see it because---

1. The effects aren't bad.

2. Anakin Skywalker's acting, while wooden, is better than it used to be.

3. Samuel Jackson is so modsquad cool with that white skullhair.

I liked the film for keeping the pace throughout. On my rate-o-meter 2.75 out of 5.
