YMMV: Jumper

The movie and book

  • Anvilicious: If you drink, join AA. If you know, are related to, or brush someone on the street who drinks, make them join AA and join Al-Anon yourself.
  • Crazy Awesome: Griffin, the British Jumper from the movie, everything he says & does is awesome & crazy & both. Most of the Awesome in the movie is his.
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: The movie adaptation. Depending on how you ask, some people might be slightly sympathetic to the antagonists, though ultimately neither side is composed of adjusted, decent human beings.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Griffin has the reputation to be far more popular than the main characters. His popularity resulted in a video game spinoff centered on him. Whether it's because he's such a Crazy-Prepared Badass or because he's played by Jamie Bell or both is your choice. Becomes Harsher in Hindsight when Jamie Bell revealed that he hated the production of the movie (More details on The Other Wiki).
  • Harsher in Hindsight (or maybe "Funny Aneurysm" Moment if you're that sort): Did he just... Drop a plane-hijacking terrorist from the World Trade Center...? Brr...
  • Love It or Hate It: The movie adaptation.
  • Strawman Has a Point: The reasons stated for the Paladin's attempts to wipe out Jumpers may be religious, but judging by what David uses his powers for most of the movie as well as what else they're capable of wanting to stop Jumpers it isn't unwarranted.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: Jumper: Griffin's Story is an Obvious Beta if there ever was one, with too many Game Breaking Bugs to count. It hurts all the more for What Could Have Been Jamie Bell voiced the cutscenes quite well, and the teleporting mechanic came within a hair's-breadth of being fun. Being rushed to market to meet the movie's opening date ruined it.
  • The Woobie: David, in the book. Millie finds him cute for it.

The Freeware Game

  • Awesome Music: The final boss theme from Jumper 2 and its remix in Jumper Redux.
  • Breather Level: Oddly enough for one so late in the game, 7-4 in Jumper 1. Yeah, there's a lot of spikes, but there's also a lot of golden arrows that'll renew your Double Jump.
  • That One Level: You will find one that you will have a lot of trouble with. Take your pick.
