Jumper: Directed by Doug Liman. With Hayden Christensen, Jamie Bell, Rachel Bilson, Diane Lane. A teenager with teleportation abilities suddenly finds himself in the middle of an ancient war between those like him and their sworn annihilators.
Hayden Christensen is back in the news because of his return as Darth Vader in the recently wrapped up “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Disney+ show, so I figured I’d give Jumper another watch. It’s among my favorite movies with Hayden and is based on a book series that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed, even if the last one came out back in 2014. The premise is pretty simple and they follow through with it to a logical conclusion, and I don’t have many complaints about the film at all.
This is one of the powers that I think I would want to have for myself, even over flying or invisibility.
