John Carter ★★★

I just recently decided that the movie was even worth a shot because after watching a few clips I got the vague feeling that it could turn out to be an enjoyable sci-fi tale and maybe even gather a cult following. After all, the film's source - Edgar Rice Burroughs' "A Princess of Mars" from 1917 - is considered a major influence on the science-fiction genre. Well, I might have gotten my hopes up a little too much... While "John Carter" certainly was above average and overall fun to watch (despite the once again annoying and unnecessary 3D), it was ultimately rather forgettable.
