Zap! A misfit discovers he can teleport. Bam! Eight years later, the young man (Christensen) stumbles across others like him, while an inexplicably silver-haired Samuel L. Jackson wants to kill them all. Whoosh! That’s the sound of whatever potential this sci-fi premise might have had being immediately flushed down the toilet. Why the usually competent Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) thought that pumping up the volume and flash would somehow make up for the incoherent, half-baked story line is mystifying. You’ll envy the time-space superpowers, since they could carry you far, far away from this mess.
