On two occasions, Dejah is falling from a great height when John makes a soaring leap, and catches her at its apex when he's traveling horizontally. Doing so instantly cancels out her downwards momentum - when either they should've both gone into a sharp dive, or else she would be killed as if she'd just hit the ground. See more »
I put off watching this movie because I read an awful review of it. So my expectations were low. But let me tell you, i LOVED this movie! What fun! Just a super fun movie.
I'm not going to spoil it for you, the less you know the better. I will tell you that John Carter was written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the man who wrote Tarzan. But unlike Tarzan this is science fiction. If you liked Star Wars, if you liked Willow, if you like adventure and action movies then check this one out. I might even buy it, which I almost never do any more. This was SUCH a pleasant surprise.
I just wish I had a 3D TV, because it comes in 3D also.
