Movie propaganda

From Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”—a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of warweary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.

    Movie Review

    This movie was an epic sci-fi adventure full of colourful characters and intriguing plot lines. The best way I can describe John Carter is Avatar meets Prince of Persia. I loved being taken to another world for a few hours and becoming immersed in the new cultures the movie introduces. I also enjoyed the love story that was weaved through the action to give the film an extra dimension. The only downside of the film was the length but overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
