DCRJ's Movie Reviews : JOHN CARTER (2012)

We saw JOHN CARTER (2012) at the 3D Digital Cinema 3, SM Mall of Asia March 10, 2012 Saturday. Taylor Kitsch (aka Gambit in X-men Origins Wolverine) as John Carter. The film based on Edgar Rice Burroughs novel, tells the story of military captain John Carter who got mysteriously transported to Barsoom aka Mars. The film reminded me of the gladiatorial battle sequence from Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones and it also reminded me of the plot from James Cameron's Avatar. Although the film is a visual spectacle specially in 3D, it suffers from an incomprehensible and incohesive plot failing to get a real bonding between Carter and the group of aliens called Tarks. It is also hard, at least for me, to sympathize with John Carter due to the messy characterization expressed by the script. Overall, it's still watchable with some thrills but it could have been so much more. My ratings: 3 out of 5 Biscuits. BTW, Thomas Hayden Church is in the film, he played the Sandman in Spider-man 3, Willem Dafoe is also in the film, he played the Green Goblin in Spider-man one
