-but I haven't seen John Carter. I'm guessing it's terrible.
I imagine it's something like Prince of Persia or Pirates of the Caribbean- fun action vignettes strung together on a forgettable plot.
I thought it was a LOT better than Prince of Persia. Also, I thought it was significantly better than the Star Wars prequels and most other similar recent films. Then again, I've heard from quite a few people who really didn't care for it. But the majority of moviegoers does seem to enjoy it. (71% on Flixster, 7.1/10 on IMDb)
