**(semi) Spoiler on my last comment below**
Had potential, but same old tripe, that doesn't go anywhere or do anything. In particular, none of the characters are likeable, and they are all selfish. Plus, we're to believe that NOBODY in the film has a maturity level above that of a sophomore in High School...
**If that isn't enough: not even the main bad guy is killed in the end. (They were probably hoping s-e-q-u-e-l. I'm thinking the audience response told them: No way! Let's hope so.

I'd wanted to see this movie for a while, but didn't want to actually pay to rent or download it, so many thanks to the OPL for not letting this accidentally fall into a fire.

I can appreciate a movie that takes a big swing and misses. Excellent special effects make it visually appealing, and the world that's presented sets up nice potential, but the plot doesn't live up to the hype and I found myself checking how long was left and wondering if I should stick it out or not.

It's not a bad movie for showing off your new home theatre, but it'll already be evaporating from your memory while the credits are rolling.

I give it a 4.5/5.
Now that I'm older it was much easier to understand. The special effects, the plot and sounds of "jumping". A true popcorn movie Mocha6ft3.

One of the things i did like about this movie is the sound made when the characters "Jump" or "Teleport". It sounds cool when it's coming from your HOMETHEATER!!! This movie has some very good visual effects and good action scenes. It's what my friend calls a "Popcorn movie". It's fun to watch while making munchies. My friend wasn't feeling this film and talked often about how corny the story is but did root for the main character. Huh? She said she didn't want the bad guys to get him. I guess she did like the entertainment. I enjoy watching and listening to the characters "teleporting" and not knowing where they would end up next. I'm giving this cool traveling story 3 and a half stars. WHY? Great special visual and audio effects, an ok story, and guessing with my friend where they would "Teleport" next. 2 Shish kabobs with white sauce,lettuce,sliced tomatoes,pita bread and root beer soda.

It's fun. Just fun to watch. The location shots are worth the pprice of admission. The Knights of Templar versus the Wicked Wizard premise is pure stupid and "The twist" is worse than that old Chubby Checker dance. But it's still fun.

professionally done, real good special effects, although futuristic/sci fi (which leaves some bargaining room)...plot/general theme lacked a bit in holding interest versus action keeping you focussed as it zips from scene to scene.

This movie has great special effects and tons of action, but it has a terrible script and most of the acting is horrific. That being said this movie is still somewhat fun and worth checking out, I would recommend this to fans of science fiction.

Dece movie , could have been better but overall was a good movie to see if you like time travel or teleport ( even if you think the jump scenes of nightcrawler from X-Men are cool)

David Rice: Let me tell you about my day so far. Coffee in Paris, surfed the Maldives, took a little nap on Kilimanjaro. Oh, yeah, I got digits from this Polish chick in Rio. And then I jumped back for the final quarter of the N.B.A. finals - courtside of course. And all that was before lunch. I could go on, but all I'm saying is, I'm standing on top of the world.

A Si-Fi masterpiece. Hard to believe Rachel Bilson will be 30 this August 25th 2011 . She is my favorite one I'd take her over all the rest. 7/16/11 " Every teardrop a Waterfall " new to me just today. To that sexy 65' brunette. Renting 'Waiting for Forever ' from Redbox today in honor of the winner.
