Gist: 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. –Walt Disney

The Positive: Finding Nemo’s Andrew Stanton joins the ranks of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas for helming a state-of-the-art sci-fi movie that jumps high in production and entertainment value.

The Negative: Taylor Hitsch jumps high in charisma but falls flat in expression.
