    존 카터가 자신의 모습을 처음으로 세상에 드러냈던 때는 지금으로부터 딱 100년 전인 1912년이었지만, 내가 그를 처음으로 만난 지는 몇 년 되지 않는다. 어렸을 때 나는 과학소설에 별로 관심이 없어서 아이디어 회관이나 동서추리문고 같은 장르 문고 역시 읽은 기억이 없다. 몇 년 전이 되어서야 [화성의 존 카아트]라는 제목으로 축약 번역된 바숨 시리즈 첫 작품 [화성의 공주]를, 그것도 직지 프로젝트의 디지털 변환된 판본으로 읽은 것이 나와 카터와의 첫 만남이었다.

    상당히 뒤늦은 만남이었지만, 나는 카터의 모험담에 금세 빠져들었다.…

    “Did I not tell you he could jump!”

    Hey, all of you people who thought Star Wars Episode I-III was the shit - Andrew Stanton made a movie just for you! Edgar Rice Burroughs-adapted John Carter about the young man who somehow ends up in the middle of a big conflict on mars may serve some cool imagery - but those barely works even as a blatant distraction from how soulless and empty the movie really is.

    What this space-adventure…

    Pouring one out for Taylor Kitsch's career.

    I...don't know how to rate this movie. From a critical standpoint ("is this any good?") I gotta say that it probably deserves a 1-star-rating. On the other hand, if we're talking about how purely enjoyable it is, I would give it 5-stars. No hesitation. So let's cut the difference and make it 3.

    I don't think I've ever giggled so much during a movie. The actors, in the most serious tone of voice,…

    It’s movies like this that almost make me wanna watch Johnny Depp’s “The Lone Ranger.” Why? Well, initially, I’d heard so many bad things about “John Carter” that I wasn’t going to watch it. However, over time, I gradually heard a few people, I trust, say it wasn’t really that bad. So, me, loving this type of Flash Gordon space opera adventure B-movie type stuff thought, “What the hell,… I’ll check it out.” And sure enough, I really like it.…

    It's no where near as bad as it's reputation makes out. Big special effects decent action let down by a bit of an empty lead character.

    One of the best films in the Men Jumping Really High genre.

    So i finally watched this movie from the beginning. Honestly i don't understand why this had so much hate and dislike generated for it.

    This was not terrible. Granted it wasn't that great either.

    Personally i liked the speedy dog thing.

    Overall it was a movie i watched with nothing to do on a Sunday.

    I liked it more than I thought I would. Let's be honest, given the source material this is as good as it can get.

    I suppose the outstanding flaw here is the plotting, which is nonsensical. It's hard to make excuses for how poorly brigded some elements are, but I must posit that this movie gets just about everything else right. I like that it refuses even a hint of cynicism, the pitch perfect tonal balance between straight sci fi genre pic, melodrama, and farce, the playfulness, the wildly busy world it imagines. Taylor Kitsch, that delightfully cheesy, forthright action hero, is perfectly cast…
