Jumper (2008)

Cool premise for a movie, but I had the distinct impression that a good portion of the book was missing from the screen. The movie should have started with him at age 5, when he made his first jump. It should have more thoroughly explained why his mother left, and how she became involved with the jumper hunters, or whatever they call them.

Why are they trying to kill the jumpers anyway? I mean, besides the ridiculous reason they provided in the movie. A lot of potential, but it lacked foundation. Sometimes we want a little more plot with our action. Don't shortchange us.
