There is a moment in the movie John Carter where our eponymous hero is fighting an absurdly pitched battle against dozens of the green, tusked, four-armed Tharks.

The clip may be a bit on the short side at only 42 seconds, but it's a good 42 seconds. And you can't argue that it's fun as heck to see our titular hero, American Civil War veteran John Carter Taylor Kitsch , try to escape from a horde of pesky and determined Martians—led by the always-awesome Mark Strong as Holy Hekkador Matai Shang—like a pro.
