John Carter part 2
The movie wraps up pretty well, with the obligatory giant army of green martians scenes, epic battles and lots of fighting, some real, a lot of cg video game imagery. It could have been worse, I suppose.
There were no banths present, but we did get white apes, which barely looked like apes. Why make them blind? Carter's ability to leap over tall apes and buildings is used a lot, which is pretty cool. His upper body super strength is not used much.
All in all I wish I had seen this in the theater, and that it had made enough money for some sequels, since the first three books all make a good story arc.
