The Jumper Hot Dog Review -
Director Iain Cash
A cynical trainee journalist is sent to the top of a tower block to collect weather readings only to find a distraught woman about to jump to her death. However, instead of gently talking her off the ledge, he turns out to be the ultimate bad Samaritan and just shrugs, telling her to get on with it. Oh, but could he have the keys to her car first?
Black as night-as-night laughs and a smart script compensate for some unconvincing acting. It may not be the filmmaker’s intention to have the audience willing the whinging lady to actually jump, but ‘The Jumper’ is a smart slice of gallows humour nonetheless.
