For a while I was really enjoying John Carter and getting ready to stand up with the film's fans to fight against the critical mauling it received on release. Unfortunately the second half of the film is really dull and I lost interest but it didn't deserve to be a failure as there's still a lot more to like than in most films.
One thing I did notice is that the CGI worked really well with the live action (in the first half anyway, like everything else it gets worse as the film progresses). I couldn't help but wonder if this was a result of being directed by somebody with a background in animation.
