    It did a lot better internationally than in the US.

    I tried to watch it and couldn't figure out what the hell was going on. It was hard to follow. Special effects were kind of cool, but the story was meh

    I really enjoyed it...not a masterpiece by any stretch but from the reviews I expected it to be complete shit. It was a solid flick IMO...:up:

    This.

    Disney marketed this the wrong way. It was a lot better than I expected.

    I got a kick out of seeing the same two actors who played Julius Ceasar and Marc Antony in HBO's ROME essentially reprise their roles in John Carter.
