MANILA, Philippines - John Carter’s mission is not to save the day and win the girl. No, that would be too easy. Rather, his herculean task as he makes his big leap from the pages of Edgar Rice Burroughs 100-year-old novels and into the big screen is to both win the new generation of film “critics” over and launch Taylor Kitsch as the next big action star.

Because based on film trailers and stills, it’s easy to dismiss director Adam Stanton’s “John Carter” as another all-special effects action film that borrows elements from some of the more successful sci-fi films of the past decade. And in some moments, it seemingly does. When we first meet John Carter, he is a 19th century Virginia man who has seen his share of action in the Civil War and is apparently being “recruited” to fight once again for a cause even though Carter insists that whatever debt he has to society, it is already paid in full.
