Movie trailer


Probably the best action movie done in the last twenty years. Trully awesome! We need a John Carter 2

Why do you guys think disney went to great leangths to downplay this movie when it was comming out in theatres? Every review on the internet and in the media was negative and they purposefully made the poster / movie jacket retardedly boring. Ploy to try not to get too many people to see it don'y you think? Sadly, they try everything to prevent people from waking up... so sad. This movie deserves a high position in cinematic history!

Seriously then, you should have at leased noticed the fact that this guy was transported to Mars... which makes his (semi)special abilities extremely plosible. You can't be so dumb as to knock this movie down based on it's lack of realisticness.
If you must know; science actually backs this up and some would say that it is actuall fully proven (common f--ing sense in my opinion) that a man who moves to one planet not his own which has a lower gravity pull (there is always a difference in this as no two are the same), then they would be lighter and perhaps almost be able to fly like John Carter.
What makes this story of John Carter so special in the first place has always been because it is extremely accurate to how it would really happen... It is actually most likely a completely true story. Our technology on the surface of earth right now is finally catching up with what our secret govts developed... trust me this stuff is real and this story makes "perfect sense"!
Ever try to do a full OBE (outer body experience) rather than just astral (4th dimentional) travel or projection? you should try exploring these things... the full outer body experience that many people on earth can do and do actually do is the same (minus connecting to a planet via consciousness) as described in the book... to the T! I can attest that I really have traveled to a planet exactly like the Avatar movie portrays and gravity for me was exactly like John Carter's experience. Not sure how physical I was, but the people there did see me walking around exploring and persued / chased me as if they have had altercations with our race before(??) and don't trust us / don't want us there. That is when i discovered that I can jump rediculous distances and handle the landing like nothing. Fun, but not fun to be chased for your life. Anyway... this was not a dream (although many would describe it as a fully physical feeling lucid dream) it was an astral travel I did.

I hope you explore the higher aspects of yourelf. Just start meditating and listening to your higher self... we are truly awesome beings here on earth and fortunate to be here.

I'm off to save the planet some more, peace & namaste!
I dug it. Not quite Dune, but hit the spot. Nearly a 9.
Lynn Collins kept my attention, played a nice warrior princess.
Loved it! Amazing story!
WOW.. I Have to agree! I really loved this movie! I'd watch it again, anytime! I definitely suggest you give it a watch, I think you will be really surprised! I give it a strong 8.5/10 love love loved it!!!
Meh... Stopped it at 1:30
I think some people didn't like it because he doesn't seem to be nearly as tough as he was in Borough's books...but that's the old purist vs. entertainment value thing we see all the time... Still a good movie.
I love this movie. A lot of critics hated it, but i disagree with them. I thinks its great.
@Sir_Joe Yeah I don't get the ratings on this movie either. I had a great time. I've watched it a couple of times.

For me, the impossible stuff depends on the skill of the Director. Some can make it work, which it did for me in John Carter, Star Wars, Raiders etc... for example. If the movies good enough, and fun enough, and sets the mood for it, it's easy to overlook and it just adds to the fun.

Other movies have impossible stuff as part of the concept, or as an expression of art, like; Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, The Matrix, Life of Pi, so it works there too. I love those movies.

But when a movie is taking itself real seriously and realistically, and starts throwing in the crazy stuff, then I find myself saying "Hey! He can't do that. Or that's not how that works..." :)
@OhReallly Yeah, there are people who do not like films where impossible things happen. People who prefer Chuck Norris to crouching tiger hidden dragon, because they say nobody can jump so high.
Well. It is ok. People are different.
I just like THIS kind of movie. Impossible things.
I have enough reality in my daily life.
I am so disappointed that there will be no sequels.
I have just read it in wikipedia.
I cannot understand it.
Like for The Golden Compass, a wonderful movie.
Such a shame.
@Sir_Joe Ah Moebius! - Jean Giraud. He was so influential too. So inventive. His work was more pen and ink, while Frazetta's more painterly. Both did cover work and comic book illustration, but Giraud stayed more within the comic book genera, Frazetta moved more to book cover art, although Giraud also gets HUGE credit for design influence in the movies, especially in sets, spaceships and machinery, those desert-y environments etc... (Star Wars, Alien, Fifth Element) while I give Frazetta a lot of credit for costuming and atmosphere. The movie 300 was heavily influenced by his work. There are scenes that that just look like a Frazetta painting come to life.

Giraud probably had more influence in Sci/Fi and Frazetta more in Fantasy.

Two other illustrators I love are; H R Giger who did the actual Alien design and the alien ship interior, and Alan Lee who did the art design for the Lord of the Rings. Lee's work in Fantasy is just beautiful (check out his books 'Faeries' and 'Castles')

Now see, you got me going again. LOL. Just my opinions.

I agree with you about Jupiter Rising... I couldn't even finish it. And yeah, I've heard em' griping that Carter couldn't possibly make the long leaps he did... I know, but I don't care. It was fun.
Oh guys, this was AWESOME!
Exactly what I like!
Watch this, Wachowski, you and your horrible Jupiter bla bla!
This was so cool, it was Superman meets Indiana Jones meets Prince of Persia!
How can it possibly be that this is only rated 6.6 in IMDB?!
@OhReallly What about Moebius?
Correction, I meant that Frank Frazetta's illustrations were very original, not that he was the original illustrator. I believe he did the John Carter series in the late 60s early 70s. The green guys in this movie were taken straight off his canvas. His work changed the look of everything in sci/fi and fantasy. Even Princess Leia's bikini was pure Frazetta. He was copied so much that now the style has become commonplace, even cheesy. As an artist/illustrator he is on of my heros....Oh sorry. I do go on a bit... "My passions will be my undoing".
Great sci/fi fun! I was so glad to see that they went with Frazetta's original illustration styling througout. He inspired so much of our sci/fi culture. Check his artwork out on the web.
solid 8.5/10
A solid 10! Very good movie! @Anthonyparks I agree!! can't wait for John Carter II
I hope they make a second movie 10/10 it left me wanting more!
Good movie but it was lacking something. The effects were expensive and the acting was decent but again, something was lacking. It felt like a big budget TV movie.
underrated, adeventure\ sci fi masterpiece.
