  • 5 stars "This movie definitelly doesn´t deserve the bad reviews from the critics. As for the Star Wars or Avatar influence, it´s in fact the other way because John Carter is based on books about 100 years old! These books were before Star Wars and it´s very likely that Lucas took some inspiration from them. Cameron even said in some interview he wanted to create a story somewhat similar to adventures of John Carter. Why this movie didn´t succeed is beyond my understanding because it´s much better than Star Wars prequels."
  • 4 stars "Funny sci-fi fairytale with cool aliens and alien creatures. Somewhat reminds me of Star Wars world."
