    I recently watched it too. It surprised me, was much better than I expected. Looks like there could be sequels too.

    yes,but unfortunately it was a box office & marketing & critical flop,so a sequel has a slim chance.

    I thought it was pretty terrible. The guy that played John Carter was ok in some parts, like the more comedic stuff, but the more emotional stuff and poorly attempted tie-in to earth was pretty trash.

    The interaction with the Tharks was kinda good too.

    Overall when I watched it I was kinda desperate for an action/sci-fi movie, and I was able to keep from turning it off till the end.

    I heard it was bad but I did see it while on a 14 hour flight. One good thing I have to say about it is that it did help me sleep and kept me occupied for 2 hours of the flight.

    The movie wasn't good and it wasn't bad. Entertaining if you have nothing to watch though.
