Distributed by Walt Disney Pictures and directed/screenwritten by Andrew Stanton, director/writer of Pixar movies Finding Nemo and WALL-E, loosely based on the stories of John Carter, main character of the Barsoon series of book written by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Just came back from seeing John Carter with my dad.
He said it wasn't particularly "deep", but it was a good action movie with good effects and such. I guess that's what I thought, too. It may seem cliche at the time, but then again, people seem to eat up all kinds of movies that are just "okay", so I highly recommend it to people who'd like a good 3D experience... Just be prepared to take down a lot of science fiction mumbo jumbo and alien names.
That said, I feel like tracking down the books just so I can read more about it and become a full-on nerd about them.
