Review of The Asylum’s film Princess of Mars, starring Traci Lords

While I’ve read quite a few negative comments about The Asylum’s low-budget, direct-to-DVD SF film Princess of Mars (Dec. 2009), starring actress and former porn star Traci Lords, as Martian princess Dejah Thoris, and Antonio Sabàto Jr., as Confederate Civil War veteran John Carter, the blog JCOM Reader has posted a balanced review. Giving the film 2.5 out of 4 stars (on a B movie scale), JCOM Reader concludes, “In the end Princess of Mars is what it is -- a low budget film made quickly. It might not be the John Carter film many wanted (and for those people my advice is skip it and just wait and pray Andrew Stanton's version actually delivers). But for those with an open mind and a fondness for B films it isn't too bad.”
