Jonah Hex Blu-ray review
The scarred Western antihero Jonah Hex debuted in the comic book “All-Star Western” No. 10 in 1972. This rugged bounty hunter lived by his own rule of justice in the post-Civil War Old West.
The comic-book character was adapted to film in this summer’s “Jonah Hex,” starring Josh Brolin as the titular gunslinger and Megan Fox as his love interest, the lady of the evening named Lilah. The U.S. government seeks out Hex to track down Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich), the man who scarred Hex’s face and killed Hex’s family. Turnbull has discovered a secret weapon that will allow the South to rise again.
Hex, after being left for dead by Turnbull, acquires the ability to speak with the dead. He uses this ability to track down Turnbull and try to put an end to his plot.
The movie has a few things going for it. Brolin is about the best-cast Hex for which one could have hoped. However, the melding of over-the-top elements such as horse-mounted Gatling guns, supernatural elements and the dark revenge sequences results in a film that doesn’t ever get a handle on its tone.
