David (Hayden Christensen) gets the upper hand against Roland (Samuel L. Jackson), leaves him stranded in a canyon in the middle of nowhere and rescues Millie (Rachel Bilson). David visits his mother (Diane Lane) and she tells him that his ability started to show when he was 5 years old. As a paladin, her duty was to kill him but instead she left him with his father. David and Millie leave to parts unknown...


Continuity mistake: When David is in Egypt when the other Jumper returns from swimming, David's shirt has drops of water. Later in one shot, the drops are there and suddenly they disappear.

Question: Why did some summaries for this movie (in newspapers, on websites, etc.) say that David goes looking for the man who killed his mother? In the movie, he seemed to believe that his mother left him and his father, and (if I remember correctly from the theater) didn't suspect that she was killed.

Answer: In the novel that this movie was based on, his mother was killed and David does go looking for the man who did it. Those doing the summaries are just confusing the two different versions.
