I have recently started to download a few films to watch , this one is called John Carter ( 2012 ) a fantasy/sci-fi film.

Plot summery

John Carter, a Civil War veteran who in 1868 was trying to live a normal life, is "asked" by the Army to join. But he refuses so he is locked up. He escapes and is pursued. Eventually they run into some Indians and there's a gunfight. Carter seeks refuge in a cave. While there he encounters someone who is holding some kind of medallion. When Carter touches it, he finds himself in a place where he can leap incredible heights, among other things. He later encounters beings he has never seen before. Later he meets a woman who helps him to discover that he is on Mars. And he learns there's some kind of unrest going on.

looking at the films description along with the name Disney , I thought I would be in for an exciting cinematic ride , alas it was not to be . Some good visual effects , but in my mind ,  let down by a cheesy story line , tacky costume design , dull plot and mediocre acting.  In my personal view some what a tad disappointing . But still watchable .

Rating - Ok
