David Rice (Hayden Christianson) finds out that he has the power to transport himself anywhere in the world. There are people out there who know all about his powers and want him dead. He doesn’t know about them or that there are other jumpers out there as well and that both sides have been waging a war against one another for hundreds of years. When he suddenly finds himself stuck in the middle he is forced to fight.  I’ve never liked Hayden Christianson as an actor and he does little to convince me that he is nothing more then a pretty boy with a good agent here. Luckily his character is given a superior supporting character in Jamie Bell (Billy Elliott) who plays Griffin, a more experienced jumper. Bell’s character is really the high point of the film as he is able to emote more diversely then both Christianson and Bilson put together. His character is definitely the more likeable standout.
