Review: John Carter

The movie talks about a guy who gets transplanted to Mars accidentally and discovers a different life with 12 foot tall barbarians who capture him as prisoner.

I really enjoyed the acting of the movie with the leading role of Taylor Kitsch as John Carter. Story line was roughly good. It would have been better if there were gore scenes at the battles in the movie but it makes sense that they didn't because it's a Disney movie. It was more of an adventure movie than an action movie.

My friend had the chance to watch the movie in Digital 3D and IMAX 3D and noticed that despite the bigger screen of the IMAX, the brightness of the Digital 3D was way too low compared to the one from IMAX. There were scenes were we could barely see anything. I don't know if it's a problem from Cinescape or from the movie screening.

Overall, the movie was nice to watch but it's not anywhere near the awesomeness of Avatar or Star Wars.

My final rating 7/10
