Based on the book by Steven Gould, Jumper follows a young man (Hayden Christensen) from a broken home who discovers that he's the capability to teleport. In his quest for the man he believes is responsible for the death of his mother, the kid draws the attention of the National Security Agency and another youth with the same abilities.
1) A jumper can only jump to a place that he has been before or a place that he can see
2) A jumper can take with him objects he is gripping that are not anchored to the earth
3) A jumper cannot jump if he is tethered to the earth or tethered to something that is anchored to the earth
There are four main factors that affect the nature of a jump:
Skill level - novice to master. Skill level affects mainly the precision of the jump. The more precise the jump, the less unintentional the side effects there will be. A novice jumper is a sloppy jumper causing a great deal of side effects and leaving apparent scars.
Emotional state - calm to freaked out. A jumper's emotional state will affect the intensity of the jump. The more freaked out a jumper is the more side effects there will be. If a jumper is calm, the side effects will be minimal and will not leave an apparent scar.
Intent - stealthy to destructive. A skillful jumper can control the side effects of a jump. He can also cause harmful side effects if that is his intent and if he has the skill to do so
Difficulty - easy to hard. The harder the jump, the greater the side effects. For example, jumping a car for the first time would be a hard jump.
