5 Much better than expected!FireStarShine | 03/04/2012 | See all FireStarShine's reviews (1)When I first saw the trailer for John Carter I thought it looked good and decided I would see it. Then I heard how badly it had apparently done at the box office and was a little put off the idea of going to see it. However I still wanted to see it, if not just to see what all the fuss was about. So my brother and I went and watched it. Well at the end of the film I was totally lost for words as to how it had received so much criticism. To me it was brilliant! I felt it had an almost perfect mix of culture, technology and captivating story line. It totally satisfied my expectations of such a film and more. My friends and family know I dont easily give out good ratings so when I gave John Carter 9 out of 10 they knew I liked it! I would even go so far as to say I like it more than Avatar. Now thats saying something!
