I've seen Hirokin by mistake, as I didn't really planed to, and what a mistake that was. I know it's hard to imagine, but compared to this, John Carter feels like a masterpiece. The only interesting thing this movie actually had, was the concept laying at the core of it, even if it kinda makes you think at Samurai Jack cartoon series. Sadly even this little, sole sparkle it had, was wasted in every possible way. I believe it would be really hard to make things worst than they already are: ridiculously bad acting, highly uninspired story, lame unconvincing fight scenes, bad filming, improper soundtrack and so on.
Really, it doesn't worth your time or money. If you have a lot of time on your hands and you don't know how to spend it, than go and take a walk in the park as it would be far more entertaining than seeing this movie. Honestly, it would be more fair if they would be the ones to pay us so we would bother to come and see such crappy movies.
