not worth paying for

Filed under: film — pl @ 19:52

Watched a rather cheesy film – “Jumper“.

I saw the ads, and thought it might be worth watching.
Then I read some reviews, which made me change my mind.

Then I found, and saw, it OnLine.
I made the right decision not to go to a cinema to see it.

 
(But I guess it’s supposed to be “cool” (or whatever you call it) … problem is, deep down it’s still …
just …
cheesy.)

 
“Rather nothing special at all” happens for the first two thirds of the film, and then everything’s trying to happen (to compensate?) in the last third.

It’s a film that makes use of music to manipulate emotions, instead of letting the story do that.
Emotion-manipulating-music is fine, as long as it’s accompanied by emotion-manipulating-story…

Possibility for a sequel?
Well, only if it’s made in the same style – that is, “nothing, nothing, nothing – oops, we’re supposed to tell some sort of story here?”.
Doing it that way, it opens up for a “Jumper 2”, “Jumper 3”, …

Otherwise, it would be fine with just a fourth third.
