Movie Reviews

  • the trouble comes when the film gets too bogged down with its storytelling, as if it's trying too hard to avoid accusations of superficiality
    4 of 5 by Dave Golder [SFX Magazine ]
  • the film is worth the price of admission if it takes us out of our seats and throw us into something amazing
    by Gregg Katzman [UGO ]
  • the designs of everything from Martian cities to alien life forms lack the visionary qualities that lodge in one's imagination
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • 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 ]
  • 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 ]
  • nothing in John Carter really works, since everything in the movie has been done so many times before, and so much better
    Review rate : D by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • nothing here compares to the sustained choreography and epic carnage of Avatar and The Lord of the Rings

    3 of 5 by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine ]
  • it's all too much, and it's too hard to follow
    2.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • it's a very entertaining, unusual and loveable mess
    3 of 5 by Tom Huddleston [Time Out ]
  • humorless epic doesn't make it easy to sit through the many key sci-fi tropes that Burroughs' 1912 story is credited with inventing
    1 of 4 by Lou Lumenick [New York Post ]
  • fun and thrilling old school blockbuster that owes much to the superb direction of Andrew Stanton
    4 of 5 by Matthew Pejkovic [Matt's Movie Reviews ]
  • fun adventure, fatefully balanced between high camp and boyish seriousness at almost every second
    by Andrew O'Hehir [ ]
  • for a Pixar graduate piece, humor is notably lacking
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • by the end of the adventure, even the initially befuddling double-frame story pays off, in spades
    4 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • as with Tron: Legacy, from a design perspective the film is faultless and a thing of beauty
    3.5 of 5 by Rob Beames [What Culture ]
