John Carter 3-D Blu Ray Delivers The Goods!

One of the most over-looked films of last year was John Carter. Even though this action, adventure, fantasy movie failed at the box office for Disney, this movie is a highly under-rated gem that I predict will be a cult classic in the years to come!

The film, based on the book A Princess of Mars, by writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, who also created the legendary character Tarzan, is an amazing visual delight. This movie is worth seeing in theaters and is worth owning on DVD for any science fiction or fantasy fan.

If you're a fan of 3-D movies like I am, the John Carter 3-D Blu Ray is a must-watch and a must-have! The special effects and CGI are more than stunning, but what makes this movie a gem is that it's actually backed up by a wonderful story.

There are many wonderful archetypes that permeates the characters and creatures of this story that Edgar Rice Burroughs created more than a hundred years ago. Yes, that's before Superman ever hit the stands in Action Comics #1 and way before Star Wars was a concept in George Lucas's noggin'.

Without this story, there may have not been a Star Wars. Even more astounding is the science fiction world that Burroughs creates, and the movie John Carter does an excellent job of bringing it to life and transporting you to this world.

Not to mention that the cast also did a remarkable job of bringing the characters to life. Taylor Kitsch as John Carter and Lynn Collins as princess Dejah Thoris are absolutely superb in their roles and wonderful to watch.

You'll be rooting for the characters in this movie, as well as be immediately drawn into the story because of the talented acting Kitsch, Collins, and the entire cast exhibits in John Carter.

Just having the movie is a treat enough. Watching it in 3-D is a thrill, but the special features gives even more incentive to get John Carter on Blu Ray 3-D. The special feature documentary 100 Years in the Making touches upon the history of John Carter from books, pulps, comics, and finally to the big screen. Definitely worth watching if you don't know much about the character of John Carter or the writer Edgar Rice Burroughs.

I became an instant fan after seeing this movie the first time. Even though John Carter failed to be noticed by the American audiences at the theaters, Andrew Stanton directed a science fiction and fantasy masterpiece in my opinion.  

John Carter is a highly entertaining ride from beginning to end. If you've yet to see it, I highly recommend you do. If you love 3-D, this movie is one of those you must watch in 3-D!
