1.0 out of 5 stars The greatest example of a person writing a screen play based of off Cliff's notes and not actually reading the book, June 7, 2010
This review is from: Princess of Mars (DVD)
I have long dreamed of writing a screen play of this book and with the release of Avatar, the technology is obviously available to do justice to all the wierd and amazing flora and fauna of E.R. Bouroughs Barsoom. So much happens in the book it would definetly be a challenge to make a coherent movie even in a three hour running time. That being said the similarities between this awful movie and the original story lie in a handful of names and that John Carter was from Virginia. The writing of this screen play either has no idea what the story is about, having been told about it by a not too good reader of the story, or he intentionally wanted to dicredit ERB for some reason. I have gone out and gotten books and read the original after seeing a movie I enjoyed, but based on watching this; if not knowing better, I would never have bought an Edgar Rice Burroughs book. Ignoring the terrible casting, the 15 foot, four armed green martians being 7 foot toad men and monsters that just weren't in the books, this is just bad. There is nothing interesting that happens, is said or is shown that should ever want a second viewing let alone a first.
