  • 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.
  • 1 stars awful
  • 5 stars This was one incredible movie, and the lead actor was perfect!
  • 2 stars not nearly as bad as the critics suggest - good special effects, but a rather weak plot. Also, the lead actor was horrible...a moe likeable actor could have saved this movie.
  • 5 stars this movie was very good amazing well done good job i say for the people who didnt like the movie you cant even tell a good movie when you see one the movie was not boring it reminds me of avatar
  • 2 stars visually striking but the story is cliche ridden and way past stupid
  • 5 stars given the bad reviews i initially read, i waited til this came to dvd. i wish i had not waited, as i was very pleasantly surprised by this movie. great fun and i want to see it again, maybe see it in a theatre somewhere next time. perhaps they should have used a different title, as many people may not have made the connection to edgar rice burroughs, tarzan, early american science fiction etc.
  • 1 stars sucked
  • 2 stars disney has done this plot to death for seventy years! lame and predictable. it's okay if you're under twelve years old, but if you're a true science fiction fan you will not get your fix from this one!
