The conversation for making Wanted must have gone a little like this:
Hey dude, let’s make a movie. Ok, what about? Dunno, but I love bullet time. Alright! We’ll make a movie with a shitload of bullet time. Ehm, ok, but what about the story? Well who cares, people just want to see it for the cool effects anyway. We’ll make it about some little insignificant pisser who then discovers that his insignificant life is no longer insignificant because he has a power. And that makes him ‘special’. And so he’s all ‘whoa’, and starts using his power, with awesome bullet time.
Eh, sure, that sounds good, but what happens the rest of the movie? Well, let’s see… you know, we’ll make him get chased by some evil brotherhood that has been around for centuries, the crowds always dig that. Idiots. And so he spends the rest of the movie being chased and fighting them.
Sure thing buddy, this’ll rock!
Now for Jumper, replace bullet time with transport wobbly effect and it’s the exact same thing.
