We sat down and watched this movie on Blu-ray yesterday evening to nicely end our little excursion day. This is a good film but it could have been (much) better.
The film itself and its special effects are quite good. I would say that the special effects are very good. The airships are very cool looking. The design nicely captures the retro atmosphere of the book without looking silly. I think they made the green men too slim though. I have always pictured them as way more bulky and monstrous. I like Woola’s appearance although him moving around at “supersonic” speeds is a bit over the top.
However, why is it that every film-company/producer/director/whatever now thinks that he can take an old classic, slam on the name in the title, and then do what the hell he likes with the material? This film has borrowed the basic idea and the names from Edgar Rice Burroughs John Carter book but almost nothing else. At most 10% of the story of the books is in the movie. The rest is pure invention and it does not improve the story. As a matter of fact it turns what was a good story into a standard unintelligent Hollywood faire. Been there, seen that, done that.
The examples are plentiful, the white apes the size of dinosaurs, the city of Zodanga moves around (what the f…), most of the plot as I said before is invented, the Therns have a completely different role etc. etc.
I especially dislike how they have made John Carter, the honorable gentleman from Virginia, into a fairly plain American guy who at first refuses to do the “right” thing. And what about these bloody wife and child flashbacks? That’s just disturbing.
None of this improves the movie. It got 6 stars, it could have gotten 9 or 10 if it had followed the books properly. It is Disney’s own fault that this movie was a disappointment at the box office, they screwed with classical material…again.
Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote his series of John Carter novels before space flight was more than a fancy. This movie is more adventure and romance and very little (if any) actual science.
This movie is the best production of A Princess of Mars, the first story in the series, that I’ve seen.
If you’re a fan of the John Carter novels then you will probably get some enjoyment from John Carter. While there are some differences you’ll meet some familiar characters and recognize quite a few relevant plot points.
Not a great film, but not a bad one, either.
I had low expectations
I put off watching this movie because I read an awful review of it. So my expectations were low. But let me tell you, i LOVED this movie! What fun! Just a super fun movie.
I’m not going to spoil it for you, the less you know the better. I will tell you that John Carter was written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the man who wrote Tarzan. But unlike Tarzan this is science fiction. If you liked Star Wars, if you liked Willow, if you like adventure and action movies then check this one out. I might even buy it, which I almost never do any more. This was SUCH a pleasant surprise.
I just wish I had a 3D TV, because it comes in 3D also.
ERB would be proud!
The most overwhelming feeling that prevailed with me after I saw this movie tonight, was incredulity! I couldn’t -and still can’t- understand why this movie has gotten such bad reviews?!? It most certainly isn’t justified! I, for one, LOVED it! As did my good friend and movie connoisseur Jacarrino. I am going to BUY this movie when it comes out on Blu-ray 3D! I may even go and buy a Blu-ray DVD player and a stupendously large Flatscreen 3D TV so I can watch it over and over again! It is THAT good!
To be clear: I am an ERB-fan (Edgar Rice Burroughs, the genius that over a hundred (yes) years ago wrote the original books about John Carter, Jeddak of Helium, Warlord of Mars and the incomparable Dejah Thoris!) I read the first of the John Carter novels out of curiosity a couple of years ago and was instantly hooked! ERB is one of the all time greatest Sci Fi writers to ever grace us with his remarkable story-telling talent and no mistake!
This movie, and I would like this opportunity the express my warm and heartfelt gratitude to Disney for making this project a reality, has everything one could possibly want in an entertaining, believable, captivating movie. My only regret about seeing this movie, is that I didn’t get a chance to see it on Imax 3D… I was too late for that! If YOU still have a chance to see it in an Imax 3D theater somewhere: GO! you will NOT regret it!
Like I said, I’m sure ERB would be most proud of this wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable rendering of his story on the silver screen!
