The plot: Young Edgar Rice Burroughs is summoned to the home of his beloved uncle and former Confederate soldier John Carter, who has perished in mysterious circumstances. Leafing through Carter's cherished journal, Burroughs learns that his uncle once sought sanctuary from Apaches in a cave and was magically transported to the Red Planet. There, Carter was captured by the Tharks - a savage race of 15-feet-tall green warriors - and became embroiled in a bitter conflict between rival clans.

  • " Not a bad film, it felt as if it had used ideas from other sci-fi films and combined them. The names of character's and places became a little confusing as to which was which. The ending could have been tied up a little better. " — rogue

Total Film

"A handsome new sci-fi adventure that feels rather familiar. Enjoyable enough while it lasts, John Carter is big on ambition and disappointingly short on action."

Time Out

"A very entertaining, unusual and loveable mess."


"Just about every sci-fi/fantasy/superhero adventure you ever loved is in here somewhere."
