I dont even understand why we give professional critics a job. This has to have been one of the better movies this year. Will watch again

The critics are idiots. John Carter sneaks up on you, the more you watch, the more you come to love it. Kitsch is a cool guy and Collins is gorgeous and an extremely engaging actress. The two have an amazing chemistry. Rarely have I been swallowed up by a movie like I was with Carter. Fantastic.

I think this is one of the best movies I have in the last dozen years ranking up their with the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Harry Potter series.The reason why John Carter didn't do better in the United States was that the movie should have been named John Carter of Mars.

I loved it. As much as I'm a Star Wars and Star Trek fan, this has become one of my new favorite films. I think you need to read the book before watching the film. There is a lot which needs explaining. I discovered this film on cable and watch it every chance I can.

It was pretty cool, but I had a hard time sitting through the whole thing. I lost interest about mid-way through.

Stanton has been given the resources to create an expansive, expensive world, but lacks the instincts to direct live-action, a limitation that shows most in the performances. Bare of chest and fair of feature, Kitsch doesn't exhibit enough charisma to carry a project of this scale. Full Review

It is a potpourri of arcane and familiar genres. "Mash-up" doesn't begin to capture this hectic hybrid; it's more like a paintball fight. Messy and chaotic, in other words, but also colorful and kind of fun. Full Review

Even Strong's best efforts can't save John Carter from collapsing in on itself like a dead star. Full Review

That John Carter is so hit and miss, and miss, and miss is unfortunate on any number of levels. Full Review

It's all too much, and it's too hard to follow. Less is more, and this movie proves it. Full Review
