"A behemoth - a huge great articulated lorry of a movie, lumbering from set piece to set piece in 3D with people explaining the plot to you about when the fourth Frang of the Fiddlyfong came from the planet Frufgah Flom. Really boring, and really expensively boring." - Mark Kermode, BBC Radio 5live
The movie stars Taylor Kitsch, Mark Strong and Willem Defoe, all performing to little effect whatsoever. Mark Kermode regarded John Carter
Of Mars as the most boring movie title ever. The title was changed after the studio became concerned that audiences would be put off the science fiction implications of knowing that a substantial part of the film took place on Mars.
