I have to say I just watched this film and I loved it. I avoided it at the theaters because of the terrible reviews, but now that I've seen it, I can't understand the bad reviews. The film was fun and very well done.This is an action film and if your looking for action, this is the film to see. The story was interesting and I enjoyed it so much,I'm going to find the books the film is based on and I'm going to read them. Don't trust any of the bad reviews-see it for yourself.

I thought this movie was very entertaining. I heard from some of the purists that they missed some of the elements that are present in the book. Since I didn't read the book, I wasn't hampered with expectations. I really enjoyed the action, the cinematography and the effects. There were cute bits to the dialogue and endearing characters. The women were hot AND fierce and truly co-starred with the hero. A great movie when you like sci-fi and just want to escape for a bit.

This movie is a pretty good representation of the John Carter to Mars story by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I think he is the original author. I read the book years ago. It is a good mix of action and story line, but it could have had a little more story for my taste.

John Carter is a fun sci-movie that has lots of action. It is a great family movie for all to watch. If you like special effects this one has a few.

John Carter was a blast from beginning to end. It may have tanked at the box office and may have gotten panned by the critics, but neither of those things should dissuade you from giving John Carter a chance. This movie has heart, action, fun and a well crafted story line. The acting is top notch and the special effects are brilliant. I liked John Carter a lot and I think you will to.

Wow! Maybe because the Disney logo sits right above the title makes me think that everyone consider this a kid movie which probably led this to be an unpopular movie among adults. I haven't even heard of the movie when it became available for purchase on Amazon. The special effects are top of the line and the story makes me think there can be a sequel. John Carter was a surprise movie for me and its worth watching again, and again. But if you're not into Sci-fi then probably not a good fit for you.

If you're looking for a well-developed plot and deep character development, then you're going to have to look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a classic pulp made real, or a completely fun Saturday afternoon cheeze fest, John Carter is for you.

This is a good movie. Again special effect. I love it. It gave a great ending that was not expected. Just wasn't ready for it. Start to finish had me going. I got it as a Instant Movie, but I shall buy the Blu-Ray.

I saw this movie in the theatres and it was wonderful there; as a Blu-Ray in 3D, the theatre experience is faithfully translated. The 3D effects work very well on the small screen and enhance the story rather than distract or detract from it. This is definitely one of the better 3D movies to get on Blu-Ray.

As for the movie itself, the other reviews here do the movie justice--this is a good, nearly great, movie that should have done much better in the theatres and should have had better reviews. The world of Barsoom (Mars) is completely and convincingly created and the storyline is interesting. There's no time to be bored and from the very start, you find yourself cheering for John Carter to meet the Princess and fall in love with her. The acting is good and the effects are not as cartoonish as the really underwhelming Avatar 3D.

Definitely worth purchasing for the home collection-it may not be Citizen Kane, but this is a far better movie than Avatar, a Dances with Wolves ripoff often given high ratings and recommended for home purchase. I hope that future 3D movies are at least as good as John Carter.
