John Carter is a sci fi fim that is based on a story that was written about a hundred years ago. This movie depicts Mars as a planet on the brink of death with two factions in all out war. On Earth the year is 1868 and John Carter, played by Taylor Kitsch, is a former US Calvary soldier who is magically teleported to Mars. Carter then finds himself in the midst of the war and he must fight with one of the factions to save its people and to save the planet.
This film tries very much to be epic, but it falls short with poor delivery of its story. Since this story is about a hundred years old and many of the other recent sci fi movies such as the Matrix, Star Wars, and Avatar have been inspired from it makes John Carter a tale a little outdated for today’s audience.
