Rough Cut Film Review has a look at the much laughed at John Carter (of Mars) which suffers from being a 100 year old pulp novella, having a duff leading man, having it's most interesting ideas pillared by other films and also the fact that everything is called something really silly like "baasoo" - not entirely rubbish but entirely inexplicable to think anyone involved with this would bet their own money on this being a success.
Tagline - Lost in Our World. Found in Another.
