+San Francisco Examiner: Man on Mars | "Co-screenwriter Michael Chabon is most definitely an ace in the hole; the brilliant Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay” and co-writer of “Spider-Man 2” knows a thing or two about interpreting pulp and comics. . . . And even though “John Carter” looks big and expensive, it enthusiastically remains a pulp story at heart, while “Avatar” wobbled between preaching and illiteracy — and fun wasn’t even a factor. . . . As it speeds along, “John Carter” celebrates the concept of adventure. Viewers will find it easy to join the celebration.
