The problem is just that it plays long.
John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) is a disillusioned veteran of the American Civil War who goes to Arizona in search of gold. He finds instead a portal that transports (or "telegraphs", as he puts it) him to Mars, a desert planet nevertheless full of sentient life. On Mars, Carter has the power to alter the outcome of another civil war; can he be persuaded to overcome his bitter reluctance to help?
The main problem with the movie is labored exposition. After a brief taste of Martian battle, it's ten minutes before you begin to hear John Carter's Earthly backstory, and ten more before you get to the part about him coming to Mars. Ten minutes after that, he's captured by a warlike alien race called Tharks; ten minutes after that, he overcomes the language barrier and starts to adapt to his new world's culture, although it's another ten minutes before he actually inserts himself in Martian affairs, literally by leaping on a flying ship in mid-battle.
After that, "John Carter" is rather fun. It just takes too long getting to the starting gate.
Director Andrew Stanton, a fan of John Carter since it was a Marvel comic-book series in the 1970s, works hard at getting the world-building right. The spaceships here work like sailing ships on Earth, except they sail on light, and the fighters use guns and swords rather than lasers. Burroughs originally wrote the John Carter stories nearly a century ago, when lasers weren't part of the equation. After some adjustment by the viewer, this rather different take on sci-fi/fantasy begins making sense, but like everything else with "John Carter," it takes time.
About the only thing in the movie that has any kind of immediate impact is Lynn Collins' performance as the Martian princess Dejah Thoris. More than just being attractive and underdressed, Collins makes her character the gateway for the viewer to begin caring.
The other human performances are mostly lost in the mix. Kitsch struggles with a gruff lead role, but has his moments. Willem Dafoe does a fine job as the voice of Thark leader Tars Tarkus. I would have liked to have seen James Purefoy more in the role of Kantos Kan, one of Dejah's allies, but his character only registers on screen for a couple of scenes. Mark Strong is more memorable as a mysterious Tharn, a race of immortal beings who enjoy making Martians and humans suffer toward his own inscrutable ends.
"John Carter" kicks into gear in its second half, with a couple of big battle scenes as well as a fight in a Thark arena which is a terrific stand-alone setpiece, with Carter chained to a rock and fighting two giant, blind white apes. By the time you get to the end, the film becomes a lot of fun, to the point where you get an itch to see more of this after the credits finish rolling.
This may not happen, since "John Carter" flopped in the U. S. and only just made up the difference overseas. It's a shame; "John Carter" did a lot of the work toward building a diverting franchise for fantasy film fans, and it's a shame to leave that on the table. Perhaps "John Carter" will build up enough of a home-video fanbase to get a second chance, and a somewhat leaner, quicker-paced sequel? Saw the trailer of this movie and thought WOW!, got to check this out. went to the movies , the second show of the day . When the movie starts I am faced with a dilemma, is this the same movie I wanted to watch? The movie starts pretty slow but gets interesting as we go on. The effects are pretty good, but the 3d is just average , didn't have many in your face effects. the picture was pretty dark and gave me a headache after the intermission. The story offers lot of potential, but needs some understanding. Action is great but few and far between I felt. Expected to be lifted off my seat with the action but was disappointed. The actors did their bit , really liked the lead lady, gorgeous she is in the face department, the body a little manly for my taste. There is a twist in the end , nothing too fantastic. I really hope there isn't part 2. I will try never again to watch a 3d movie. I found the one minute trailer of MIB 3 more interesting truly speaking. want a Luke warm headache and if you feel you purse is heavy , please watch it. your world won't change if you don't or do. Most annoying is John Carter's scarcity of action. This much buck should buy more bang. Check out Edgar Rice Burroughs' page here for information about Tarzan. A common misconception. Although it is true that Mars appears quite red as seen from outer space, this is due to large amounts of dust in the atmosphere. While standing on the surface, however, Mars would appear to be a more butterscotch yellow than red, according to experts. The reason why early photographs of Mars' surface (as taken by probes) appear red is because those pictures were taken in greyscale (essentially black and white), and later colour-corrected with the (wrong) assumption that the major colour would be red.
