This new science-fiction bash isn’t much, or rather, it’s too much. Directed by Andrew Stanton (Wall-E and Finding Nemo), the film follows Civil War veteran John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who gets transported somehow to Mars. He’s thrust in the middle of another civil war, falling for a Heliumite princess (Lynn Collins). The script here explains way too much, and Kitsch is inexpressive, unengaging and lost as an action hero. Just not enough here to justify an estimated $300 million budget.
