Synopsis
Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic tale of interplanetary adventure arrives on the big screen in this sweeping sci-fi spectacle marking the live-action debut of Oscar-winning director Andrew Stanton (FINDING NEMO, WALL-E). Civil War veteran John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) was still haunted by the violence he witnessed on the battlefield when he inexplicably awoke on the distant planet of Barsoom (Mars). Upon learning that the inhabitants of Barsoom are bracing for a major conflict and that war appears inevitable, John finds out that love is a rare commodity on the Red Planet, and summons the courage to be the hero the Martians have been hoping for. Meanwhile, John falls under the spell of the enchanting Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins), who struggles to suppress her compassion in a society known for its warlike ways. Willem Dafoe, Samantha Morton, and Mark Strong co-star.

Movie Critics
Chicago Sun-Times
"John Carter is played by Taylor Kitsch....As an actor, he is perfectly serviceable as a sword-wielding, rhino-riding savior of planets."
Roger Ebert (7 Mar 2012, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[A] rather charming pastiche....The film will likely delight sci-fi geeks most of all, but there's enough here for general Disney audiences as well..."
Todd McCarthy (6 Mar 2012, )
Movieline
"[S]pirit counts for something too...and JOHN CARTER has plenty of that, in addition to the requisite dashes of wit.....[The film] does capture the wistfulness of Burroughs’s original story..."
Stephanie Zacharek (8 Mar 2012, )
New York Times
"[C]olorful and kind of fun....The Pixar touch is evident in the precision of the visual detail and in the wit and energy of Michael Giacchino’s score..."
A. O. Scott (8 Mar 2012, )
Rolling Stone
"[I]t's built on something rare: wonder instead of Hollywood cynicism."
Peter Travers (29 Mar 2012, )
Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "Kitsch proves a handsome, forceful hero, while Collins is a refreshingly dynamic heroine."
Jonathan Crocker (1 May 2012, )
