Critic Reviews of "John Carter"New YorkerMarch 26, 2012
A mess.indieWireMarch 16, 2012
As one of Pixar's star players, Stanton is an experienced cinematic storyteller, which is why it's disappointing that his first live-action project is so unwieldy at times.The AtlanticMarch 09, 2012
The most indelible performance in the film is not, strictly speaking, a performance at all. Rather it is Woola, a six-legged Martian hound who rather resembles a cross between a bulldog and a fetal gila monster.Christian Science MonitorMarch 09, 2012
The reported $250 million price tag for John Carter gives one pause. I suppose one could argue that masterpieces have no price. Then again, John Carter is no masterpiece.Film.comMarch 09, 2012
Where John Carter continually gets it right is pacing, levity, and breadth of story.Newark Star-LedgerMarch 09, 2012
Whenever the fighting stops and two people have to stand and talk, all the air goes out of everything. Suddenly it feels as if we're in an empty theater, watching a dusty old sword-and-sandal epic.TrespassSeptember 08, 2013
Even if Edgar Rice Burroughs' 11-volume series is adapted by its three screenwriters into a nonsensical mess, then it should at least be a visual feast, right? Hardly.John Hanlon ReviewsJune 30, 2013
This wannabe epic is forgettable, bland and way too long.DeadspinJune 23, 2013
They should have just let their freak flag fly and said, "To hell with it, here's 100 minutes of John Carter punching aliens."Examiner.comSeptember 16, 2012
"John Carter" is certainly an interesting idea for a film, with a power struggle on an alien world and an outsider affecting the balance, but sadly it never ends up fully working.FoxNews.comSeptember 10, 2012
If Cecil B. DeMille were alive today and given the chance to direct a special effects-laden fantasy adventure on Mars, he might have made something similar to Andrew Stanton's visually stunning epic "John Carter."NECNAugust 25, 2012
A mightily entertaining, oft-cheesy, oft-soaring spectacle packed with more pulp than Florida's finest fruit.
