Rated NR

Adventure, Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Movie-critic whipping boy Hayden Christensen jumps around a lot in this aptly titled film. As far as films about guys who jump around a lot go, this one isn’t all that great or all that bad. While the character possesses the ability to teleport from place to place, the movie itself never really goes anywhere. Some of the fault lies with Christensen, who sleepwalks through the role. He plays David Rice, who discovers his ability to teleport after falling through the ice as a youngster. One moment, he’s about to become fish food, and then—zoom!—he zips to a library where he causes a commotion. There’s a love story, an evil Samuel L. Jackson trying to kill the jumper and Jamie Bell as a fellow jumper with a cool accent. The film isn’t awful, but it isn’t all that memorable, either.
