  • John Carter bites off more than even Woola can chew, but it's built on something rare: wonder instead of Hollywood cynicism. show more

  • This new Disney film, marked by myriad lapses and marketing follies, bears the woefully familiar earmarks of a big studio production that was pulled and hauled every which way until it lost all shape and flavor. show more

  • That's kind of the aesthetic that Stanton is going for: over-the-top pulp. But there's something generic about the digitally rendered Martians, and there's a corniness to the dialogue that keeps the audience from any kind of emotional attachment to the Tharks and Zodangans and their ilk. show more

    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.
