High Impact Mom Meets John Carter [MOVIE REVIEW]

March 22, 2012 Amanda 0 Comments

Recently I was afforded the opportunity to see Disney’s new 3-D movie John Carter before it was released (yes, I realize it’s been out for a few weeks now – forgive me for the lateness of this post, life has been a bit hectic) at Rave Cinemas Stonybrook.  What originally began as a family outing turned quickly into a “me-time” outing since Jon had class and based on my previous research the movie was not appropriate for KG (8) and KJ (5), needless to say I was a little anxious about being by myself.  I did go however and I had a blast – I had totally forgotten how much fun I am!  I splurged on Twizzlers, popcorn, and soda for the first time since the girls were born and didn’t have to remind anyone to sit still.  Yes, it was awesome.

As a lover of all things infographic, I am especially enjoying the John Carter-Willa infographic from Disney

What about the movie?

The short description: 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 war-weary, 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.

I was impressed.  Honestly I expected this to be a cross between a western, Star Wars and Avatar, which left me feeling a little less than excited – I was partially correct.  While John Carter does have the feel of Avatar and a vaguely similar storyline, I never felt slighted.  I found myself emotionally invested in the movie by the end and even hung around afterwards to see if there was an extra scene after the credits.  After having seen John Carter, I decided it would be completely appropriate for my Star Wars loving 8 year old and will be taking her to see it soon.

Disney sent some clips to share with you too, in case you haven’t seen it yet:

Have you seen John Carter yet?  What did you think?

Disclosure: I was given advance tickets to see John Carter, all thoughts on this movie and how old I am are my own.
