John Carter - Movie Synopsis & Plot

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton ("Finding Nemo," "WALL•E"), "John Carter of Mars" brings this captivating hero to the big screen in a stunning adventure epic set on the wounded planet of Mars, a world inhabited by warrior tribes and exotic desert beings. Based on the first of Edgar Rice Burroughs' "Barsoom Series," the film chronicles the journey of Civil-War veteran John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who finds himself battling a new and mysterious war amidst a host of strange Martian inhabitants, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins).

MOVIE REVIEW

Just when you thought you'd seen all the Star Wars prequels you found poorly written, clunky and devoid of captivating characters comes John Carter, a Disney-fied space epic that is poorly written, clunky and devoid of captivating characters. Its one saving grace: it makes you appreciate George Lucas's [forgotten] skill when it comes to directing explosive action, something that is so sorely lacking in John Carter.
