O que se diz lá fora sobre JOHN CARTER, de Andrew Stanton:
«Does JOHN CARTER get the job done for the weekend action audience? Yes, I suppose it does. The massive city on legs that stomps across the landscape is well-done. The Tharks are ingenious, although I'm not sure why they need tusks. Lynn Collins makes a terrific heroine.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«Stanton has been given the resources to create an expansive, expensive world, but lacks the instincts to direct live-action, a limitation that shows most in the performances. Bare of chest and fair of feature, Kitsch doesn't exhibit enough charisma to carry a project of this scale.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.
«It is a potpourri of arcane and familiar genres. "Mash-up" doesn't begin to capture this hectic hybrid; it's more like a paintball fight. Messy and chaotic, in other words, but also colorful and kind of fun.»
A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
«Director Andrew Stanton's Disney extravaganza is a rather charming pastiche.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
«Nothing in JOHN CARTER really works, since everything in the movie has been done so many times before, and so much better.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
