Movie Review: JOHN CARTER

John Carter (2012)
Directed by Andrew Stanton. Starring Taylor Kitsch
Genre: scifi fantasy

About The Story:
Transplanted to Mars, a Civil War vet discovers a lush planet inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter a princess who is in desperate need of a savior.

I watched this movie last night and it was good. I enjoyed it! But it took a determined and willful suspension of disbelief. They used a very good software with great skill to blend the fantastical elements of the movie to live action which was beautiful! Have to give the cinematography kudos for a job well done!! However the director need to pay a little bit more attention to the little details like when Carter burst out of the white ape's back covered in gore, the sword he subsequently raised to the spectators needs to be covered in gore too, not sparklingly clean. Even with those "clerical errors", I still say that this movie was good entertainment! I'd give it a 4 out of 5.

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 cherries
