John Carter of Mars Blu-ray is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning movie, so beautifully cast John Carter had so much promise in the early trailers, it had a striking font and it was called 'John Carter of Mars'. However after this something happened which resulted in the film being buried. It was hardly marketed, the 'of Mars' was dropped, along with the font. The DVD release was even worse, with the cover looking like some cheap knock off at car boot sale. So what is this film like? It's a thing of beauty to look at, with stunning costumes and locations that bring Edgar Rice Burroughs' fantasy world to vivid life. The casting is top notch, Taylor Kitsch makes a perfect Southern gentleman John Carter, you really want him and Lynn Collins' Dejah to be happy together. Mark Strong brings his distinctive voice to the bad guy; the Green Martians are great characters and the friendly 'newt dog' is too adorable, in an utterly ugly way, for words. The other roles are played by a disguished list. So why was it buried? Why did this film not spawn a series? Did Disney know they were buying Star Wars and saw it as surplus to requirements? Some, ignorant of it being drawn from a century old novel, saw it as derivative, just compare the arena scene from Attack of the Clones to the one in this film.... But the reality is that this story came first and is the Grandfather of the Sci Fi Fantasy genre we all love now. It deserved a chance and could have sat happily beside Star Wars, had it been allowed to have that chance.
