The major problem here is one of rooting interest. I hate to sound like a mogul, or a focus group ho, but at the center of this picture is a flat, inexpressive protagonist played by a flat, inexpressive actor.
Sounds like they got Hayden Christensen to star in the film

It seems like Hayden Christensen is a template for and/or reflection of many of the young actors Hollywood is trying to make big-budget, action stars. They're all so bland.

Man, if you get a famous actor they complain and then when you dont get one they complain as well. If you are going to complain about the acting do, there was no need to mention what his pay grade might be.

Michael, let's be honest here. You'd love to sound like a mogul instead of yourself.

I completely agree. This movie could have been a whole lot better if they actually got a hero who had some charisma. The guy playing John Carter just sort of sleepwalked through the entire movie.
The CGI aliens and characters had more personality than this guy.

And what about how much Flash Gordon owed to John Carter?
But unlike most critics who've posted negative reviews, you write as if you've actually seen the movie. Thank you.

Taylor Kitsch was pretty spot on!!! Emotionally deprived for the war on earth, he became emotionless and bland... Hmmmm!! And that's what you are criticizing?? Dude, you probably would be your pants in the front of a camera...
