    If you don't mind adolescent pulp and abandon yourself to what amounts to a moving-image comic... This fantasy will entertain to those that enjoy Sci-Fi in all it's shades. The animation is well crafted and the action is many times thrilling. Feels like a mashup of
    many other movies, but a good ride nevertheless. The final touch: It is dedicated to the memory of Steve Jobs. Cheers to that!

    Visually stunning, but the plot is a mess with multiple beginnings and endings and lots of alien double-speak that will leave many perplexed. If you can get past that, there are some fun setpieces.

    Wunderbar trashiges Sci-Fi Epos im 80er-Jahre Gewand, das viel besser ist als sein Ruf!

    Natürlich ich der Plot durchsetzt von Stereotypen und man nimmt hier auch eine Menge Anleihen bei diversen Genre-Klassikern (Dune, Avatar, Indiana Jones, Star Wars etc. ...), aber da der Film dies nie bestreitet und offen damit spielt, sich selbst damit nicht ganz so ernst nimmt und dies noch dazu auf eine sympathische Art und Weise rüber bringt, weiß dieser durchaus zu unterhalten.

    This movie is like Pirates of the Caribbean on Mars. It's fantastic and I'm really sad that it didn't do well in theaters. John Carter 2 would have been amazing!

    Someone put all John Carter books in a blender and splurged a cup of it all over empty pages. The result was this script.

    At least it makes as much sense.

    Here's the thing...this movie's not perfect but deserves to be appreciated for paying homage to the Burroughs source material that so many sci-fi films reference.

    Kudos also are due to the production design and CGI used to create the space vehicles in the film.

    If you choose to delve deeper than the surface level of the film you can notice some interesting parallels between the factions on John Carter's Earth (North, South and the Native Americans) and the factions on…

    This is a good film. Don't believe the Hollywood hype and see it. One of my friends made a very astute observation: this film, like "The Rocketeer" (another under appreciated Disney gem), was done in by lousy marketing - not taking advantage of the fact that this story is the granddaddy of all modern science fiction films.

    The visuals are incredible - so much more imagination than Avatar. Very steampunk-ish. The 3D isn't necessary to appreciate the film, so don't bother.
