He later encounters beings he has never seen before. He meets a woman who helps him to discover that he is on Mars, and he learns there's some kind of unrest going on. Written by rcs yahoo. Who is John Carter?
John Carter is a Civil War veteran who gets transported to Mars or Barsoom, as they say using a mysterious device a medallion. There, he grabs the attention of four-armed, green, feet creatures known as Tharks due to his superhuman jumping skills thanks to the lower gravitational force present in Mars. There, he gains some recognition and is forced to be involved in a series of battles, all part of a war between the city of Helium and Zodanga, as well as decide the fate of the planet.
Barsoom is where the film takes place. It's similar to Earth Jasoom in ways but also different in other ways. There's oxygen as John Carter is able to breathe normally, although he might have inhaled some other type of gas , and there's water in the form of rivers and lakes, but no oceans.
However, organisms who inhabit the planet are driven by blue blood, not red Earth blood. There's a smaller gravitational force present which allows not only John Carter, but any other Earthling to jump like Superman. There are no plants, no sign of botany. And they speak a different language, however John is able to understand the Barsoom language due to a special drink.
And the best part: there are two moons. Barsoom, compared to Earth is much more technologically advanced. There are futuristic flying ships present, artistic buildings, and flying bikes something like that. It's definitely more advanced than us. But for some reason, their fashion is just ancient John Carter is shirtless for most of the time in Barsoom , and most of the landscape is deserted, empty.
The sort of games they play is what the Romans played back in Caesar area: gladiatorial games. There's one entertaining scene in particular for that. However, the trailers didn't give provide anything interesting and didn't gain audiences' interest, therefore gained a weak opening weekend gross. Put that aside, "John Carter" is actually dazzling, entertaining, and very fun to watch. The fantasy themes intertwine with science-fiction elements perfectly.
It is just marvelous. The sets, and creatures of the planet were very realistic and very jaw-dropping. The one action scene I liked the most was the gladiatorial game held in the land of the Tharks where Carter, Sola a Thark , and Tarkas another Thark had to fight against two monstrous, giant-sized, eyeless, white apes. And the 3D: the 3D effects here were worth noting and recommended.
The outstanding special effects lead to the amazing, and widely entertaining action sequences.
John Carter uses his swords as his weapon and does swordplay against the inhabitants of Barsoom. The inhabitants of Barsoom are no match for John Carter, regardless of their weapons and fighting skills, thanks to Carter's extraordinary jumping skills and outstanding sword-fighting skills. John Carter is just invincible and too strong for Barsoomians.
However, there was some problem with the storytelling as it was not able to tie up loose ends. In the middle of the film, we encounter this power source or something, the ninth ray. It seems like something special, something revolutionary, something vital to the story. But then, there's not a trace of it later on.
What's happened to it? What's the significance of this power? What is it capable of? The actors' performances were satisfying enough. Taylor Kitsch is a very suitable John Carter and gives a satisfying performance, although not Oscar worthy. The other supporting cast also did well. Some of the characters who appear in CGI have also been given outstanding voices by the talented supporting cast. Anyone who loved "Avatar", or "Star Wars" would definitely enjoy this flick.
It offers a blend of fantasy and science-fiction and is perfect for audiences of all ages. The children will love the technology incorporated, the older kids will clamor the dazzling special effects, and the adults will enjoy the love story and action scenes.
