John Carter (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) Review

Synopsis: From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton (Best Animated Film, Wall-E, 2008) comes John Carter -- a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs's classic novel, John Carter is a war-weary, former military captain who's inexplicably transported to Mars and reluctantly becomes embroiled in an epic conflict. It's a world on the brink of collapse, and Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands. Stunning special effects, great characters and villains -- and complete with extraordinary bonus features -- John Carter is a heroic and inspirational adventure that will thrill you beyond imagination.

Review: This is a rare, big-budget action feature for Disney.  John Carter is something that they banked a lot of money on working out and this CGI-based fantasy film is big on quality, even if not in box office revenue.  It didn't do so well in theaters, but this one definately has the chops for entertainment.    This film follows an early book series about a warlord on Mars and the film follows the books pretty well.  This one has great characters, outstsanding action and absolutely amazing effects.  We definately do recommend it.

The special features include: Blu-ray Feature Film + Bonus, DVD Feature Film+ Bonus, Disney Second Screen, 360 Degrees of John Carter, Deleted Scene with Option Commentary by Director Andrew Stanton, Barsoom Bloopers, 100 Years in the Making and Audio Commentary with Film Makers.

Interest Range: Action, Fantasy
