    Not as bad as I expected. Taylor Kitsch can't act. I think otherwise it had a decent cast. CG wasn't great but I didn't feel it to be terrible. However, the Tharks looked like the grasshoppers in A Bug's Life to me and that was distracting. I liked the concept of the Therns and interplanetary travel. Overall, I feel this could've been a much better movie if not treated with kid gloves by Disney. If it had been done for a more mature audience, it would've succeeded for me.

    Also, Lynn Collins looked great.

    Avatar meets Flash Gordon. Directed by the dude who brought you Finding Nemo and WALL-E. Story by the guy who brought you Tarzan. Sounds like a no-brainer, a smash hit, a home run. Unfortunately it hasn't proved to be. And I'm curious as to why. It's issues are hard to single out. It shares many things with the highest-grossing film in history (presumably why it's mega-budget was finally greenlit are decades of trying to get JC on screen). It's got…

    Leaving aside how old the source material is or however it may have influenced etc etc, there just isn't a market for new mythological sci-fi worlds aside from the existing ones that were established decades ago.

    Anything new looks superficial and childish and no-one wants to think what they're watching is childish, ESPECIALLY children.

    As a standalone sci-fi fantasy, John Carter with it's thrills, laughs, plot and supporting scenery-eaters is passable but truthfully this sub-genre has only ever had space…

    3 stars for being shirtless for most of the movie, Taylor!

    A história de muito potencial visto que foi adaptada de um livro, mas a fórmula demonstrada no filme foi meio que genérica. Mas o filme é ok!

    Suffering badly from the source material ripped off so many times over the course of cinema history, John Carter really is not as bad as it's reputation would have you believe. Forget the reviews, forget the sense that you've seen it all before and just go with it.

    John Carter is a highly entertaining and unjustly dismissed sci-fi epic with good characters, breathtaking visual effects, terrific performances, amazing action sequences, and a great story, and if it weren't for Disney's terrible marketing campaign, this wouldn't have bombed.

    If I were to describe this movie, it probably would come down to a simple "meh".
    Though visually outstandin at times (and too much obvious CGI at others in my humble opinion), everything in this movie has been seen before in countless other movies.
    Almost every piece of art design, the storytelling, more precisely the overall ideas that make this film seem stolen from other, better examples of cinematic productions. Even the cultures of Mars that are depicted here are…

    ★½ Added by Craig Martin

    Andrew Stanton's ambitious adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrows space epic, JOHN CARTER OF MARS is a visual feast but little more. There have been lots of comparisons to Star Wars but for me the film sits closer to a science fiction action film that may be flawed but is nevertheless far more successful in its world building: THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK (David Twohy 2014). Riddick, played with charisma and grunt by Vin Diesel is a planet hopping badass with a…

    3D WOW thank you for making THIS film! Space theme, adventure, mystery, Star Wars-ish, at the time of its release new ideas, new actors, very surprising and enjoyable. I love watching a movie and having no idea what it is about and get wowed like this. What fun through and through. It is not so much enjoyable to watch over and over again, but the first journey through it - what fun! I think, because it is similar to Star…
