So long as you can give into the idea of teleporting, or at least turn your brain off for 90 minutes, this is actually a fun movie. Not much more needs to be said. I was brainlessly entertained.

3 out of 5 stars

This was just ok, it didn't flow very well and it didn't have that much action. I think this whole "Idea" would work so much better as a 1 hr a week tv series. They have every thing they need to make a good tv series.

2.5/5 [thumbsup]

I was rather entertained by this as well, good use of CG for the wormholes - although there were some points where the movie itself appeared to 'jump' without any continuity. For example the final scene, we don't know whether it's several years later or next week! I also didn't like how the long pre-title sequence made the whole movie seem like a 90-minute flashback.

Having said that though, despite reading several bad reviews on other websites, I enjoyed this movie. It's not the best movie that's currently showing, but it's certainly better than the reviews had me believe...

There were many shaky-cam scenes in this film, but oddly it didn't seem to affect me as bad as Cloverfield did. All in all, 3 out of 5.

i didnt like this film much. action scenes were hard to follow at times. too much teleporting around. ok so that guy goes to hit him... but then they dissapear and you dont know what youre looking at when they come back. shakey cam makes it hard to follow. cg is good, but its all just too much movement for my liking.

and another action flick with samuel l jackson? not another one!!!

The idea was good , I think they could have done alot better with the story.

I became bored with the contact bickering between the two jumpers.
It did pace up towards the end and the girl with the dark brown eyes was easy to look at [Razz]

so i will give it 2.5 out of 5
