Civil War vet John Carter is transplanted to Mars, where he discovers a lush, wildly diverse planet whose main inhabitants are 12-foot tall green barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, who is in desperate need of a savior.

The only minor gripe I would have when it comes to the art design and CGI is the creation of the planet Mars itself. It just doesn't look particularly other-worldly; indeed it's almost identical to the Arizona deserts where we first meet Carter.
