As I’ve admitted in the past, I actually liked John Carter quite a bit – it was a movie about how a guy altered an entire planet’s history by being able to jump really good. It was basically the closest we’ll ever get to a good Mario Bros. movie. Also, it had friggin’ McNulty as a preening, posh British-accented villain for cripes sake!
Still, I can see why some folks didn’t dig it – none of the characters were particularly likable, and as CinemaSins aptly points out, the movie hits the cliche tipping point about a third in and then just keeps ’em coming. Still, it had a dog/frog thing that ran like Sonic the Hedgehog, so I’ll still hold out hope for a sequel.
