Storyline
During Grant's presidency, Jonah Hex is a remorseless bounty hunter. In the Civil War he was a rebel whose honor put him afoul of a confederate general, Turnbull, who murdered Jonah's family while Jonah watched. As a result of the ordeal, Jonah's face is disfigured and he can talk with the dead. After staging his own death, Turnbull, with a group of rebel stalwarts, hatches a plan to bring the Union to its knees. Grant wants Hex to stop it. While the nation readies to celebrate Independence Day, Hex and an unlikely ally have little time to stop Turnbull and his weapon of mass destruction.

Quotes:

[first lines]

Jonah Hex:
War and me took to each other real well. It felt like it had meaning. The feeling of doing what you thought was right. But it wasn't. Folks can believe what they like, but eventually a man's gotta decide if he's gonna do what's right. That choice cost me more than I bargained for.



User Review

This movie might single handedly destroy Megan Fox career

Rating: 3/10


Oh my god, what was I thinking to watch this film with my brother. I
cannot believe I paid any money at all to watch this rubbish film.

THE BAD:

Megan Fox's acting

A script so bad that the writers should go back to 3rd grade. The movie
is a mess. Very Noisy. Lacks imagination. Completely forgettable. I
mean I could go on all day.

The only thing good about this movie is Josh Brolin, he gives a good
performance as Jonah Hex, he tries to save this complete mess of a
film. But sadly its too much of a bloated mess to save. I truly feel
bad for him.

As for Megan Fox, she better start having some acting lessons, cause
this movie has the potential to absolutely sent her career to the
grave. After loosing her role in Transformers 3, she desperately needs
to do something.

I can only give this movie 3 stars because Brolin, who you can see
tried really hard and was successful portraying Jonah Hex. Its just sad
that Jonah Hex was there, but the movie itself wasn't.

3/10
