Story


From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes "John Carter"-a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars).

"John Carter" is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins).

In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the achievement of John Carter is that it takes the elements worn to nubs by everything from Star Wars to Avatar to TV's Fringe and makes them fresh again..”
by Mark Holcomb [Village Voice]
“..by the end of the adventure, even the initially befuddling double-frame story pays off, in spades..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..some of the ideas may be wonderful, but there is such chaos on screen, it is hard to decipher what is going on much of the time..”
by Louise Keller [Urban Cinefile]
