I caught John Carter at the last matinee this afternoon. I have not read the Burroughs novels, so I had very little preconception walking in to the theater that was not part of the trailers I had seen. My take on it: four out of five stars. The suspension of disbelief was not onerous (yes, I’ve studied physics and the leaps were just not plausible, but I was able to go along for the ride anyway.) I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will be seeing it again with my wife. Generally, action movies give her motion sickness, but we’ve discovered that if she views them in 3-D, they don’t. (I would expect the opposite, but hey, whatever works.)
One other comment: Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins) – WOOF!
