Last night I had the opportunity to go to a local premier of John Carter in 3D.  I had seen the previews and I totally thought it would be all fighting and sci-fi, along the lines of Stat Wars.  Usually this isn’t the genre that I choose when I look for a movie but I figured I would give this movie a chance, after all the lead star is a hottie so at least I would have some good eye candy to look at.  LOL
I was totally surprised.  This movie wasn’t at all what I expected but in a good way.  I LOVED it.  Yes, it had some fighting and sci-fi type scenes but it also had romance, action, and some humor.  I went with my friend and her 12 year old son and they both loved it as well.  We were supposed to take our younger children but decided not to at the last minute.  I think that worked out well because I don’t know if my children (who are both girls- 6 and 8 years old) would have had the attention to sit through the movie.   It is rated PG-13 so not for younger children.  But it would be great for any older boy who loves sci-fi and action movies.

Here’s a brief synopsis of John Carter
From Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”—a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
