Total Film:  A handsome new sci-fi adventure that feels rather familiar. Enjoyable enough while it lasts, John Carter is big on ambition and disappointingly short on action.

IGNDisney’s adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ A Princess of Mars knocks it out of this world.

Badass Digest:  It took a hundred years to get on screen, but Edgar Rice Burrough’s classic pulp story gets there right… mostly.

Digital Spy: When John Carter moves up the gears it’s an accomplished blockbuster packed with pulse-racing action.

Matt’s Movie Reviews: Epic in scope and stunning in imagery, John Carter is an old school blockbuster….

WhatCulture:  Lovingly made pulp fantasy

HitFix: John Carter does pulp fiction right and on a grand scale

SFX: Lynn Collins’ feistly Dejah Thoris is the best sci-fi kick-ass princess since Princess Leia


Quickflix: An Underwhelming Epic

Fan the Fire: The story veers between interesting, boring, and borderline incomprehensible.
