Jumper

It’s been a while since we’ve seen director Doug Liman in the world of dialog driven filmmaking. With Go and Swingers, you got the feeling that Liman was a born director of making words truly pop as action, but then he transitioned to actual popcorn action. Sure, everyone likes The Bourne Identity, but does anyone actually love Mr. & Mrs. Smith or – dare I say it - Jumper? And with that said, Doug Liman returns to where he once so promisingly started out with Fair Game. It’s basically a marriage drama, similar to Mr. & Mrs. Smith, but without the gunplay. It’s not the “high-octane” thriller it may, and most likely, will be sold as. Doug Liman had plenty to say when I sat down with him. His answers were thoughtful speeches when it came to returning to dialog driven films, how he initially dreamed of only making dumb action movies, his visual style, and what exactly happened on Jumper.
