4.0 out of 5 stars A review of the movie itself... 21 May 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Ok. Where to start?
Firstly, I have not read the book. So I can't draw any comparisons on content/accuracy etc.

What I wanted to do is simply dispel the rumours and terrible press this move has had to endure.
To start with the painfully obvious: This movie is unlikely to win any oscars (although the CGI is really really good).

I sat down to watch this with very very low expectations. I mean, how much could I expect from a movie panned by all critics and recording massive losses for Disney.

But you know what? This is actually rather good.
It's not going to make it into my all time top ten, but it's a lot of fun.
Maybe it helps that I'm a big sci-fi fan in general, but this type of movie is typically what I like to sit back and watch with full immersion without the need to really work the grey matter in my brain.

The alien race(s) are well developed, the imagery is superb, with Mars looking both daunting and amazing, and as mentioned before, the special effects are top drawer. The battles, especially those in the air are stunning visually.

The lead actors do a decent job of drawing you into their characters and their fight to address the demons in ther respective closets. The female lead is stunningly beautiful, and you never tire of her screen time. The bonus being that she doesnt whine or complain a great deal and really comes accross as a tough heroine in her own right. Carter is well acted, with occasional reference to his troubled past, but this works well as well as it's not overly frequent, and when it does occur, you actually feel for him, at least a bit.

And of course the story itself is excellent. You have to remember just how long ago the book was written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Movie ! 21 Mar 2012
By chris
Format:Blu-ray
I saw this film last week and it is an excelllent representation of ERBs "A Princess of Mars"

The savaging of this film by the media is not only unfair, its unjustified and frankly I have been disgusted at some of the so called critics and their reviews.

Everyone,I know,that saw this film, loved it-so give it a chance-you will not regret it.

This film is good old fashioned escapism, of a swashbuckling kind,I thought it was better than Avatar ( it was more fun,thats for sure)

Its a pity the film was not given a proper chance.I think it will be judged very kindly, in future years and its a pity more people didnt take a chance on going to the cinema to watch it.

I liked this film a lot. Long long time ago, when I was a teenager, I read some of Edgar Rice Burroughs novels in the "Barsoom" series (Barsoom means Mars in Martian language) and I enjoyed them greatly. And thanks to this movie, I just relived again this experience and I could enjoy a little bit of the old magic.

Burroughs books about Tarzan (he created this character) had quite a number of movie adaptations, but his Martian and Venusian series were considered for a long time too hard to film. Considering that the first book was written in 1912 and that the first plans to film it were made (without success) in 1931, it certainly took time to have a movie version of the first of "Barsoom" books - but considering the rather pleasant result, it was worth waiting that long.

Below I tried to describe the best things in this film, with as little SPOILERS as possible.

1. John Carter from Virginia, a former captain of Confederate cavalry. For my personal taste Taylor Kitsch pictured him quite well, and the scenario describes him like in the book, as a man courageous, strong and aggressive but also noble, faithful and clever. Unlike in some other action movies I found this hero quite LIKEABLE - he is a little bit grim and sullen in the beginning, but we soon come to understand why and frankly he has reasons to be in such a state of mind. His progressive awakening to a second chance in life is credible and a pleasant thing to watch.

2. Dejah Thoris of Helium, the Princess of Mars. Actually, the first book in "Barsoom" series, of which this film is the adaptation, had for title precisely "A Princess of Mars", as Dejah Thoris is a character as important as John Carter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to Barsoom 27 Aug 2014
By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I never saw this when it came out at the cinema but I know that it received a very mixed bag when it came to reviews, and also that it was considered as a box office flop as it didn’t bring in the expected takings that had been estimated. So saying, though, when this was released on DVD,etc this did quite well. I don’t know how long it is since I last read the John Carter novels but I will admit that I quite enjoyed this.

This has some great special effects as now we have the use of CGI, which this film does rely on quite a bit as you have monsters and large scale scenes that are required for this. The story is based upon Burroughs’ ‘A Princess of Mars’ the first of the five stories. Obviously this isn’t quite the same as the novel, as indeed films usually aren’t, but this is fun to watch. Full of derring-do, and some swash buckling this is action packed from beginning to end and so should keep most people more than interested.

When John Carter suddenly finds he has been transported to Mars or Barsoom as the natives call it, he finds himself embroiled in the culture and politics of the planet. Originally captured by the Tharks it is not long before he discovers that there are other people on the planet who resemble homo-sapiens. When he sees the princess Dejah Thoris he is instantly smitten. But Dejah has been promised to another which will hopefully stop the warring going on on the planet between the humanoids, or Red Martians. As John Carter sets out to find a way back to Earth, his feelings certainly come to the forefront when it comes to Dejah. Also finding out about the mysterious Therns, Carter knows that Mars is itself in danger and he realises that one day it could be Earth facing the same problems.
