Stars: Hayden Christensen, Jamie Bell, Samuel L. Jackson, Rachel Bilson, Diane Lane

I wanted to see this when it was released at the cinema, but the reviews put me off a little. I got the impression it was a nice idea, but not particularly well executed.

The film follows David Rice (Christensen) as he discovers that he can "jump" from one place to another. With some effort, he learns to jump anywhere - from New York to Egypt, from Egypt to London... However, nothings that simple in the movies and he ends up having to deal with other jumpers, love, and the Palladin (enemies of the jumpers).

This isn't a bad film, but for once the reviewers were right. A nice idea, but not particularly well executed.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
