AllMusic Review by

Filled with mystery, drama, and tension, Michael Giacchino's original score to John Carter, the big screen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Princess of Mars, beautifully sets the tone for this science fiction adventure. Evoking the dramatic tension of classic scores by luminaries like John Williams, the soundtrack easily conjures images of the iconic hero's adventures across the red planet, creating the tension required for blockbuster action while also capturing the loneliness of the movie's sprawling deserts. For anyone wanting to take a musical journey back to the film, or just looking to add a more epic tone to their everyday life, the John Carter score is sure to please.
