John Carter Review: Perfect And Better Than Avatar

Trust me on this one. You have to go and see John Carter. Don't wait for the DVD or for it to be on cable. If you have kids take the whole family to see it. John Carter is one of the best movies I have seen in the last 5 or 10 years.  I loved everything about this movie. John Carter is a great sci-fi movie, great action movie and great love story. There have been  few made reviews of the movie. Philip French and Peter Bradshaw said the movie was terrible. I am here to tell you they are 100% wrong. In fact I will put my reputation on the line in support of John Carter. I will personally guarantee that if you see this movie you will love it.  I just don't understand how anyone could give this movie a bad review. The story line and the acting were great.  John Carter is a movie that everyone can enjoy watching. Adults , young people, older people,   a movie for everyone. Men , women, kids, all groups of people. This is not just for the sci-fi fans. I know married people that have completely different tastes in movies. Sci-fi, action, love story, mystery, western, this movie has something for everyone. I  lot of people have been comparing John Carter to the Avatar movie. I think John Carter is better than Avatar. Also a very family friendly movie. It's rated PG-13 and it's a very weak PG-13. Not any love scenes that will make you feel weird watching with your kids. Also not a lot of profanity or offensive language in the movie. You can feel safe taking the whole family to see John Cater.

Princess Dejah Thoris vs Princess Leia

Taylor Kitsch was perfect for the role of John Carter. He is a good actor and did a great job in the movie. I do not want take away anything that he did and gave to the movie. However I have to say John Carter might end up being remembered as Lynn Collins's movie. She does a great job as Princess Dejah Thoris of Mars. It's easy to see how John Carter or anyone would fall in love with her. I am not just saying this because she is super hot. Megan Fox is hot but her acting sucks. Lynn Collins is a great actress. Princess Dejah Thoris as earned a place in sci-fi history next to Princess Leia.

A perfect movie? In the movies that I like and even love. I always think about something I might change. I might say I don't like this one scene in the movie. Maybe it was a good movie but the ending could have been better. Maybe I say this actor was good in the movie but maybe this other guy would have been better. Sometimes I say it was a good movie but too long. I would not change a single thing about John Carter.
