Action/Adventure, Drama


After 100 years, the long-awaited adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter series of Martian adventures has come to this. The story that inspired Star Wars, Avatar, every sci-fi book written by every major sci-fi writer, and even Carl Sagan's worldview turns out to be this mugly, mediocre mess. Now thanks to this adaptation, a pulp icon will now be known as the jerkwad from that lame-ass Disney movie.
