Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Hitting theaters this weekend is another new DC Comics adaptation, Jonah Hex, about the gunslinging anti-hero bounty hunter. It was directed by Horton Hears a Who! director Jimmy Hayward and stars Josh Brolin, Megan Fox, John Malkovich, Will Arnett and Michael Fassbender. Jonah Hex currently has 14% on Rotten Tomatoes, but is it really that bad? Is there anything redeeming about it or is it just a bad movie from start to finish? How was Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex or John Malkovich? Good at all? If you've seen it, leave a comment and let us know what you thought of Jonah Hex!
To fuel the fire, this movie was terrible, just plain awful. Sorry, but I just have to say it. I've been comparing it to Frank Miller's The Spirit (which was one of the worst movies ever) it's so bad. And worst of all, there really isn't anything to like about it. I tried to appreciate the visuals, the directing, the performances from a stellar cast, but all of it was terrible. It's a shame to see such talent and such a great concept go to waste. I would've rather have seen Crank directors Neveldine & Tayor's version of this that they originally pitched, that was intense and R-rated. This Jonah Hex was laughably bad and quickly forgettable, a complete mess.
What did you think of Jonah Hex? One of the worst movies this year or mildly entertaining?
