Movie Review -- John Carter
The movie is based loosely on the Princess of Mars, a novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs from the 1950s. Taylor Kitsch (remember Gambit from the X-men?) plays John Carter from Virginia. Part of the funny is that the tall green men of Mars misunderstand him and call him Virginia for part of the movie. It was cute!
Lynn Collin is Dejah Thoris, the Princess. She was perfectly cast, and John is in love with her eyes. Ha!
Great casting for the green martians -- Thomas Hayden Church and Willem Dafoe.
Don't listen to the "critics" who make a living putting movies that make money down. They'd all like us to spend money on Tree of Life and other crap movies. Pfft to them!!! Go. See it! I hardily recommend this fun movie!
