    A wannabe Star Wars movie, trust me there's never going to be a Science Fiction franchise that is as good as Star Wars and you thought Taylor Kitsch was the answer you fool.

    This adaptation is released too late to be making any meaningful impact on our culture like the legendary source material did, but Stanton at least ensures it's not a bad adaptation.

    Look, 'John Carter' is a mess. Too much of the plot seemed to happen for no reason (hell, the movie's main villain even admits that he has no motivation!), so I couldn't buy into it emotionally. And as soon as that emotional buy-in goes missing, it's hard not to get bored as the guys in red fight the guys in blue, or whatever. Having said that, I'll give this movie points for effort because (unlike most effects-driven, mega-budget Hollywood adventure…

    Great Combo with McNulty and Strong. Even Cranston shows up in the beginning; the other actors are bad. Weird Creatures throughout; John Carter has its own style. This maybe was one of the biggest financial disasters but movie wise it wasn't a meltdown. It wasn't a good film either. Its not a children's movie so I don't know why Disney put fucking 250millions in this, they had to expect that this is going down

    One of the finer sci-fi adventures I've seen in a very long time.

    First off...my star rating is about as objective as I'm going to be with regard to this film. I say this because, in many ways, I love the movie more than the 3 stars would suggest, but I can think of many reasons why this film is flawed.

    Okay, time to back up.

    When I was around 10 or so, I discovered the John Carter of Mars books. My older brother (I have a few) had a bunch of them,…

    Dumb. And the books tell much better stories.

    Man was this bloody and violent for a Disney film. I thought Pirates of the Caribbean was pushing it but I think this one took a a little bit further.

    But any ways this movie was fun to watch. The action was great to watch and the violence was fun to watch too. The two reasons why this wasn't R ratted was because first Disney replaced the color of the blood from red to blue and second it was aliens…

    It's a shame the fate this film suffered at the hands of the terrible marketing team over at Disney. The incredibly bland, generically boring title they decided to go with didn't help. Why they chose "John Carter" over the original novel's title "A Princess of Mars", or even the original film title they were planning to go with, "John Carter of Mars" is beyond me. This is the definition of one you have to see it for yourself, because audience…

    I'm willing to accept that I brought a lot to this film, but it enchants me every single time.
