Trued to compete in the same level as Avatar,but fell way short of that mark by several thousand miles in my opinion.
Well,well! Disney tried to make a huge movie,that fell flat on its face,got up,and fell back down again. I just wondered how Disney would think this would be as big as Avatar,or it be the new “Star wars”.
The story is basically about a guy who was trying to find gold in a cave stumbled across some markings on a wall,and got sent to Mars who had to save a princess. That is all I will say about the story line,as I do not want to ruin it for other people who may not have seen it yet.
The alien characters kind of resembled the avatar characters,but where green,and had four arms,and blue blood,oh and upside down horns. The special effects where not to bad,but no up to par with Avatars of course, like the rest of this movie it just fell way short of even getting started down the same successful road Avatar did.
The acting was little over average,and really could have been better cast in a few places. BUT please do not take what I say as this movie being all that bad. It actually is ok enough to watch again. It just didn’t keep up with better quality movies in its genre.
The female lead had a bit of a male voice at times which really put me off. I like women,but her voice made me want to cringe at times. And the male lead seemed to have a very gay stance at time to,like they both where in some sort of weired trans-gendered experiment that they both only just made it out of alive,and with most of their gender part in tact. Yes I know I shouldn’t really be sarcastic,but the to leads just seemed to be out of some weired nineteen seventies acid trip dream that someone had once.
I surely would not want to pay any money to own this,and would sell it as soon as anyone would ever give it to me for free.Not because I hate it that much,but I just found the whole thing just like a dream the makers of Avatar would have if Avatar would ever had been made that poorly.
Disney will need to make some serious money back fast to make up for this mistake,and I am sure it will be implemented into DVD prices,and amusement park prices. Although in saying that the parks more than likely make enough money from the food they sell,and soda vending machines in a week to make this movie twice over plus some. $2.75 for a 20oz bottle of soda is a crime Disney.
So if you feel like knowing how it feels to be on acid in the seventies,but to not want to do acid,because you know better,then this movie should help you experience how that very feeling,feels !!
