Jonah Hex [Blu-ray]
Frequently Bought Together
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Out of the pages of the legendary comics and graphic novels steps Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin), a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort who can track anyone... and anything. Having survived death, Jonah's violent history is steeped in myth and legend and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the "other side." His one human connection is with Lilah (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah's past catches up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: to wipe out the warrants on his head, he must hunt and stop dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, now gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah's oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead.

But it's not an unconditional love -- the loathing I have for "Jonah Hex" proves it. This movie is a bit like the evil love child of "Wild Wild West" and "Van Helsing," with all the bloodcurdling stupidity of the former and the flashy steampunky trappings of the latter. Josh Brolin does his best to salvage this messy undercooked stew of cliches, but honestly... there's no saving this movie.
Jonah Hex (Brolin) was a Confederate soldier who turned against his commander Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich), and Turnbull got his revenge by killing Hex's family, scarring his face and leaving him for dead on a cross. Of course he doesn't die, but becomes a bounty hunter who can communicate with the dead just by touching them. All this is crammed in the first three minutes.
Then the president recruits him to hunt down Turnbull, who is building "the weapon" that could destroy the entire United States. So he meanders off and brawls with some people, gets some crossbow-guns (what?), and rushes to rescue his favorite hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold (is there any other kind in movies?).
I wish I could give a better summary of the plot in "Jonah Hex," but that's kind of like examining the acting talent displayed by Megan Fox -- it's so minimal that you'll just sprain your brain if you try to actually talk about it. Jonah is traumatized, he shoots people, he gets drafted, he shoots people, he goes searching for Turnbull, he shoots people, and so on and so forth.
Basically there's not much plot here, so the writers pad it with as many fiery explosions, gunfights and hallucinatory flashbacks as they possibly can.Read more ›
Being based on a comic book ...I don't understand how some many people didn't like it.
Like 'GhostRider' ...it does a good job of bring the comic book subject matter to the big screen.
Josh Brolin and John Malkovich are great!! The production is very well done for a blu-ray.
I'm not usually drawn to files like this ...but this is one of those films where I find the majority of the 'bad' reviews are wrong.
I actually love this film!! ;-) ...I can't anything to flaw!
Picture and audio may be well deserving of your attention, since detail is quite impressive and sound is immersive enough, but still, that doesn't account for the atrociousness you're about to embark.
Special features wise, it's one lackluster blu-ray so once more, it covers the generic ground (where the character comes from, some of the movie's supposed improvements, etc.) but never with any depth.
Once again, stay far away from this. I could have given it no star at all, and at $5, it's not even worth picking up except for watching Megan Fox acting even less in a parody of Sergio Leone's movies combined with Constantine's visuals without either one's talent or ambition. Do not even rent, unless you're absolutely sure.

Well, I liked Jonah Hex, but I'm a sucker for comic book hero movies, and I have a fairly open mind about them. Read morePublished on Nov. 21 2010 by Tommy Tom Tom
