John Carter has some amazing visual elements that are some of the best I have ever seen; the cgi is absolutely fantastic and certainly makes the film easy to watch. It's easy to see where the money was spent on this project. However, it suffers considerably due to major pacing problems, making the film feel uneven. Thus resulting in a film that, unfortunately, is disappointing and forgettable.

I feel this movie was truly ok. Neither bad nor fantastic. It was a bit full of stuff - but I've been told that makes it very true to the book, which I have not read. I found the costuming often took me out of the story as I just thought it looked kind of silly and cheap. I really like the non-humanoid aliens though.

Much better than critics said it was. I'm glad I watched it in the theater. The CGI was great, story was great, and acting was good. Exactly the quality of movie you expect from Disney. A good rental.

A Pleasant Surprise!

The movie begins in the late 1860s, at which point Virginia-born John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), is a Civil War veteran who is trying to lead a normal life. He is locked up for refusing to join the Army, but he escapes and is pursued. As he attempts to find shelter for himself and a wounded officer, Carter accidentally stumbles upon the cave of gold he was seeking.
Carter's surprise soon turns to shock when he's attacked by a mysterious robed man who appeared out of nowhere holding a medallion. When Carter touches the glowing medallion, he is transported to habitable and populated planet Mars or, as the locals call it, Barsoom. Of course, Carter at first has no idea where he is but soon realizes that he has incredible leaping abilities due to the lower gravity of the planet.

Gravity-less plot with lots of silly moments

John Carter is a movie that displays some sheer senseless fun with some good spell of thrills. It is a movie of big budget and we can consider a fact that Disney has decided to pull the chords of money again with John Carter. It is a realization of what makes a simple lead story coupled with teleportation to the other world or planet. Directed by Andrew Stanton (famous for finding nemo, toy story), John Carter is a visual ride with lots of graphic images and visual effects entangled with a slight portrayal of a mean plot.

Plot of the movie is about Captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) a veteran captain of the Virginia region. He accidentally comes in contact with a small metal object that transports him to barsoon the mars. He starts developing skills and one day he becomes the hero of ...

An Epic Fail.

John Carter is, to put it simple, a stupid movie with an incoherently told story and meaningless characters. It nearly put me to sleep. The visual effects may be first-rate, but who really cares? We've seen enough visual effects in the last decade. Those green alien things looked absolutely hysterical, the action sequences were lame (including this one scene which involves the character John Carter facing off against these two gigantic lumbering idiots known as the White Apes, which was meant to be cool but was just unintentionally hilarious), and put all of that aside, the movie was consistently very, very boring. I was unbelievably bored by this film because of how slowly it muddles through its messy plot and its constant introduction to random characters (which takes the story nowhere)...
