AN AMAZING FILM!!!! GO SEE IT NOW!!!! IGNORE THE STUPID AS HELL MARKETING!!!!
The marketing for this film makes it seem like it’s just a guy fighting aliens film, but there is so much more beautiful stuff than that. Funny thing is, you can see a lot of similar elements to Tarzan (at least at the very core of the story) which really makes me want to go read all of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Oh…didn’t the marketing tell you? This story is based on a 100 year old book! Of COURSE they didn’t mention it….they didn’t believe in it. That’s why they released it in March. NO faith. Which is so sad since Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL-E) directed expertly and Michael Giacchino composed amazingly epic themes (as always – you know: Up!, Star Trek, Space Mountain, etc).
But enough out of me. Go buy the Blu-Ray and show Disney they were wrong!
Who’s Who (and why I recognize them):

- Dejah Thoris = Lynn Collins – Wolverine’s love from X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
- Edgar Rice Burroughs = Daryl Sabara – Annoying wizard at school from Wizards of Waverly Place (and also Juni from Spy Kids…they grow up so fast!)
- Matai Shang = MARK STRONG!!!! – first fell in love with him from Miss Pettrigrew Lives For A Day
