Considered by some one of this years movie failures, but not by me, the movie John Carter is a pretty good fantasy movie with lots of action and adventures.

The story begins in Arizona, after the Civil War, where John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), a decorate former CSA Captain, is prospecting for gold. Here he fights the locals, he’s beign held up, escapes and after he’s beign chase for a while by the cavalry, he ends up hiding in a small cave. Here he finds some symbols, and while investigating, some strange bald man in a shining robe attacks him with a knife that seemed to have appeared from thin air. From this fight, the stranger ends up dead an John founds some blue-glowing medallion from the stranger, picks it up and repeats three words that he heard the bald man saying and suddenly he awakes in a strange desert.

After he’s chased by some odd creatures, beaten, tied up and captured by this creatures, he find out that the place where he ended up was Mars.┬áMost of the action takes now place on Mars, where John finds out that he has some great powers and fights the living creatures that live on there.

Like I said, this seemed like a pretty good movie to me, and I’ll give it like a 8.5/10 rate.
