Default 'Jonah Hex' - High-Def Digest Review

Our review of 'Jonah Hex' has just been cast, er, posted. This is a plotless, poorly acted disasterpiece. This Blu-ray fails as well, with weak video, bad audio, and cut and paste extras. Skip it.

Full review here:

Yeah, not in this life.


Nate, the Crank guys (Neveldine/Taylor) had nothing to do with this mess. They were given the boot (or quit, depending on who you ask), but it's unfortunate that their names were left on the credits. In fact, if Neveldine/Taylor had directed from their original script, Jonah Hex would have been some great exploitative cinema.

Brolin and Jimmy get the blame.

totally agree.

'Bloodsport' total awesomeness, 'Jonah Hex' total awfulness.

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.

Yeah it's a mess, and it'll probably sweep The Razzies, but I found it to be an enjoyable piece of fluff to watch for an hour while your brain is set to "off". Heck it's the first movie I've been able to remotely enjoy Megan Fox in, that's gotta count for something.

I'll probably get roasted alive for this but I've endured worse...

Can we officially place Megan Fox in the "Worthless" category? How many more tries does she get? I hate to be rude but she would be much better served doing anal porn or something where her true ASSets could shine. She doesnt need to speak - just moan and bend over. Thanks.
