Jonah Hex (DVD/BIL)
Another DC Comics hero gets a workout in Jonah Hex, the movie incarnation of DC's scar-faced bounty hunter, played here by Josh Brolin. Out to exact revenge on the varmint who wrecked his face and killed his family, Jonah also gets yanked back into the service of his country--against his will, of course. Said varmint, Quentin Turnbull, is played by John Malkovich, although the more spirited villainy is provided by Turnbull's tattooed Irish assistant (Inglourious Basterds's Michael Fassbender plays the part with the kind of energy noticeably absent from the other cast members). In this 80-minute hodgepodge of a movie, Jonah regularly checks in with his lady friend, a prostitute (Megan Fox) whose bordello room has a remarkable amount of glamour lighting, and in his spare time investigates Turnbull's plot to use a super weapon against Washington, D.C. By giving Jonah a halfway-interesting supernatural talent--he can talk with the dead, by placing his hands on them--the film adds a kicky new wrinkle, but it's not enough to improve the mangled storytelling or the sleepwalking pace. Brolin's makeup is impressive, but in scarring his cheek and pulling his mouth back in a grotesque grimace, the prosthetics designers have robbed the actor of any ability to express himself through speech. Kind of a miscalculation there, and typical of this movie's tendency to shoot itself in the face. --Robert Horton

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.
