One Sentence: Oh Anakin you still suck so hard.

I do have to say that even though it had Hayden in it, I just really wanted to go see jumper.  It looked very cool.  I could handle him.  I have faced cool movies with this kid facing me trying his best to ruin everything he could about the movie I was watching.  So I could handle it again with Jumper.  So I went to see it.  Taking him out of the equation the movie still failed almost everywhere.  

I love the idea, love it, and it was executed in a way that almost for a minute, worked.   It started out cool.  I was thinking I was going to get into this.  Hayden showed up and I was still ok.  I thought we were going to make it out with a fairly good movie.  Then it all went to shit.  When we started actually building a plot around this cool idea, everything fell apart.  It got really dumb.  They could have gone a completly different way and done so well, instead they went with some sort of odd good vs evil thing that did not work at all.  Here Hayden was not one of the things that was ruining the movie, it was the actual movie.  He was only a mild annoyance. 

Samuel Jackson, did not help either.  Sometimes he is great and sometimes he is horrible.  This was one of those horrible times.  Think, Formula 51.  The CG at the end fell apart too, going from good presentation of the CG to amateur hour with the flip of a switch.  Now I was dealing with blur and things that really took me out of the climax of the movie.  It just did not work for me.  There was very little here that I can get behind and recommend that you should even rent.  So I would stay away.
