Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Jonah Hex is short enough, slick enough, and loud enough to avoid being summarily dismissed. Although the storyline, with its bizarre ventures into mysticism and necromancy, is at times difficult to follow, the movie is never boring. It is, however, frustrating. onah Hex, like so many DC Comics properties not featuring Batman or Superman, fails a successful transition from the printed page to the big screen.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average It's based on some DC Comics characters, which may explain the way the plot jumps around. We hear a lot about graphic novels, but this is more of a graphic anthology of strange occult ideas.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average Some movies seem so blatant an effort to appeal to a specific target audience that they ought to come with a viewers' advisory warning. The opening frame of Jonah Hex should say: "Caution: Made expressly for the male teen demographic. Not suitable for anyone of any age who prefers movies with coherence, an original plot or characters they give a hoot about."

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 35 moviegoers:
TEENS:Two males loved "Jonah Hex" and two didn't think much of it. The three female reviews are better. Three enjoyed it very much and one rated it average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:One of the males loved it, one rated it above average and two didn't care much for it. The one female loved it.
ADULTS:The male reviews are pretty good but certainly not great. Only about 25% loved "Jonah Hex." A little over 25% rated it above average, which is decent, but the remaining half rated it from average to poor. The females enjoyed this movie quite a bit more than the guys, but a big percentage were somewhat to very disappointed.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a stoic, battle-hardened gunslinger who can track down 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.” A man fated to wander alone, his sole human connection is with Lilah (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own.

Jonah's past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can't refuse: in exchange for freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the sinister terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich), the man who killed Hex's family and mutilated his face with a branding iron. Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah's oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead.
