I got the opportunity to see Jumper this weekend. Whilst it was a very good concept for a SciFi film I felt that the film could’ve been so much more. The story line was slow to advance and I found myself wondering if it was suddenly going to just end half way through the plot. The reason for this was that the most interesting part of the film, and the majority of the wrapping up and introduction of part of the story, occured in the last 5-10 minutes of the film.

This film strikes me more as an extended prologue, or a TV series pilot. For that reason I can only hope that they were planning on some sort of Bourne-esque franchise, because if they weren’t, then they’ve seriously cocked up the pacing.
