British composer John Powell has become the go-to guy for Hollywood action films (Mr. and Mrs. Smith, X-Men: The Last Stand, Face/Off, The Italian Job, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum), which helps explain why director Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Bourne Identity) chose to work with him again on Jumper, a science fiction actioner about a man who can teleport himself anywhere instantly. Powell specializes in mixing synthesized sounds with traditional orchestral instrumentation, and that's what he does here, primarily combining loud percussion with strings.

Powell gives himself over to rock on occasion ("Coliseum Fight," "A Head Start") and even gets to slow the pace here and there ("Coliseum Tour," "Airport Departure").

The soundtrack comes off as efficient, if unimaginative.
