David Rice (Hayden Christensen) is what is known in paranormal circles as a “jumper,” one of only a handful of specially-gifted individuals who have the ability to transport themselves from one corner of the globe to another at will (if nothing else, such a talent sure cuts down on a person`s transportation costs, no small thing in this age of $4.00/gallon gas). Obviously working below his pay-grade here, Samuel L. Jackson plays Roland, the leader of a group of religious fanatics who, believing only God should have the power to be in more than one place at a time, roam the earth seeking out and destroying all the jumpers they can get their hands on.
The whole concept of “Jumper” is so wondrously unique. Doug Liman’s (director of The Bourne Identity and producer of the sequel) visceral, superlative action scenes; in dichotomy to the sci-fi angle – leads to a bit of a chicken or egg question as to the genre placement/marketing derivative of which should come first in the nous spotlight. I may be over-analysing here, and I may or may not buy and read the novel, but if you want a no holds barred, no thinking – but still ever present and concise thrill ride, you couldn’t seriously contemplate to go pass this motion picture film.
The Blu-Ray disc brings out all the best. We get several looks at the teleporting effects and some in-depth commentaries. Sure, the film’s short as hell, but we’re given plenty of time to enter the world of the Jumper. Plus, the final showdown with Jackson is reference quality material for your Blu-Ray powered home theater. I recommend this title for a blind buy.Â
