      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Josh Brolin gives it his best shot, but he can't keep the short, unfocused Jonah Hex from collapsing on the screen.

      Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: B- Feb 18, 2012 Full Review Robbie Collin News of the World Jonah Kex, Jonah Wrex, Jonah Hax, Jonah Kax, Jonah Thix, Jonah Crox, Jonah Sux. Rated: 1/5 Sep 8, 2010 Full Review Anthony Quinn Independent (UK) The film shows its comic-book origins in good ways (stylish settings) and bad (too many scenes end in a gigantic conflagration). Rated: 2/5 Sep 3, 2010 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson "Jonah Hex" is as convoluted and as haphazardly made as the title character's face. Rated: 1/5 Sep 4, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review [Jonah Hex] finds Hollywood carelessly slapping together elements of a bankable property and failing in every respect, to degrees that go beyond just bad filmmaking and instead reach extremes of moviegoer abuse. Rated: 0/4 Aug 18, 2023 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Leaves infinite questions without response. [Full review in Spanish] Aug 2, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Matt M Picked this movie up for 3.99 at a second hand media shop, I recognized thee Jonah Hex name but I had no clue that made a movie about him. Casting in this movie is bafflingly bad, like the actors are great it's a star studded cast, but almost none of them feel like they fit the roles at all. The film feels oddly short, like the pacing is really fast and the plot is really sorta disjointed to get the whole story across in about an hour and ten minutes. The art direction is solid, Jonah's prosthetic makeup looks good, and the bringing people back from the dead thing is neat and relatively well executed. It's not the worst thing I've seen, definitely not worth paying for it but if you see it on a streaming service, like the character and have an hour to kill it's not a bad time. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review Daniel B Jonah Hex, a través de alegorías a la muerte retrata la necesidad interna que tenemos en buscar cumplir un ideal, y lo peligroso de vivir sin uno. La trama se basa en primera instancia en centrar su foco en la venganza interna inicial que mueve a Jonah, "el buscar aniquilar a la persona que asesinó a su familia", y que por suerte del destino no terminó con el también, siendo revivido por los indios americanos, y con un único objetivo, el devolverle el favor a aquél que literalmente terminó con su vida; misión que logra sin mucho esfuerzo, pero después de ahí qué sigue, la única motivación tan intensa que literal hizo que se levantara de los muertos con un único propósito está saldada; rebajando esa furia en ser un caza recompensas, hasta que después de mucho tiempo se empieza a rumorear que al mismo hombre que se obsesionó por matar podría seguir con vida, tras el robo de un tren en una escena que expone de buena forma a los antagonistas de la cinta, tanto al principal que gracias a una buen prólogo ya conocemos de lo que es capaz. Creando una trama muy circular que con la gran exposición que la película soltó ya sabemos cómo se va a desarrollar y culminar, lo cual no me parece ni positivo o negativo, es más un exponente de los pocos matices que conforman la trama. Algo que me gustó de la película es su saturación en la imagen en las escenas de acción, son visualmente estrambóticas, con cortes rápidos, que cubren la simpleza de las mismas; pero que en construir una narrativa visual es muy, pero muy simple, no es interesante y llega a ser aburrida, no es del todo mala, pero no es un punto destacable técnicamente de la película. En el segundo acto toma impulso el incidente incitador de la trama y Jonah parte para nuevamente derrotar a Turnbull, antes de libere una gran arma en la que había estado trabajando para destronar a Washington el 4 de julio en el centenar de la nación. Volviendo ese fuego interno a la hora de volver a tener un objetivo que buscar cumplir, creando un paralelismo entre el héroe y el antagonista, en el que ambos matan para apaciguar su propio dolor, haciendo que literalmente ambos vivan en su propio infierno en vida. Las motivaciones de Turnbull narrativamente son malas, pero tener cómo antagonista a un incitador del caos no es del todo malo, vuelve más entretenida a la historia y da pie a escenas de acción que vuelvan más amena a la película. Una alegoría que me gustó de la película está en la conexión interna de Jonah con los cuervos, representando para mí el primer espectador de la muerte que sigue a Jonah por su cercanía con el mundo ancestral, siendo de cierta mente un recordatorio de que, aunque viva con no muertos internamente está más cerca de cruzar hacia el otro lado. Culminando esta historia con Jonah volviendo a cruzar miradas con Turnbull, dónde, aunque en una primera instancia no pudo terminar con él, logró descifrar su plan, buscando en segunda instancia poner fin de una vez por todas al complejo plan de Turnbull, y terminar con su sed de venganza interna, hasta que Turnbull intenta derrocar a Jonah con la única cosa que es más importante para el que la venganza, su relación con Lilah, atrapándola y usándola cómo incitador para frenar a Jonah, desarrollando más el conflicto interno del personaje, donde, aunque pareciere que su deseo de venganza se antepusiere a todo, su necesidad interna de conectar con otra persona es más fuerte, la necesidad interna de amar y ser amado, haciendo esto mismo que ambos JUNTOS logren detener su plan antes de que borre Washington. Yo creo que Jonah Hex no es una película mala en sí, pero me parece que su simpleza narrativa y sus tropos forzados para evolucionar la trama la vuelven indiferente, no es terrible pero tampoco cuenta con una historia o con personajes dignos de ser recordados o de ser revisitados de vez en cuando. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/02/23 Full Review Heath M I'm not sure why this is getting so much hate.. Its a fun snack sized action movie with some great story beats and action. It's made me want to find out about the comics. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/29/23 Full Review Red B This movie is insane...I'm not familiar with the source material at all but even if I was I can't imagine this even comes close to hitting it. This is barely 70 minutes and it feels like it's over 2 hours because it never stops with throwing crazy insane stuff at you. It never explains the rules of the talking to the dead except you burn quicker if you just died. Everything else just happens and makes the rules up as it goes. The action is just as bizarre with terrible CGI, bizarre kills, terrible obnoxious camerawork, and farfecthed moments especially how does Jonah know the dragon ball is deadly and stops it from going up the pipe. I can't tell if this is trying to be a action movie, western, or a Van Helsing rip off and I'm not sure it does either. Brolin is probably the best thing in this and he's just ok with some good humor in the start. But that's it, he's weighed down by just bizarre choices in the plot and terrible execution. The music is just as bad and never matches the western setting and feels too over the top and out of place half the time. And the worst part is there are just flat out times where I don't even know what is happening. Stay away from this at all costs. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/27/23 Full Review Harry F I enjoyed this movie 🎥 for the action🍅, it was void of all the foul language especially the violation of using " God's " name and the "F" bomb every single sentence ‼️The sex I can fast forward through but I cannot fast forward when the dialogue is filled with cuss words, cussing🤬 and sex do not make good movies 🎦 I enjoy 😊 19 century movies 🍿 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/24/23 Full Review Craig S It's been over a decade since this movie came out. I've been meaning to do this for quite some time, and after re-watching it tonight it's time. This is a far far better movie than any of these reviews suggest. Leaps and bounds, more entertaining than anything that gets produced and released today. By no means is the plot, story, dialogue, going to blow you away, but it moves the action forward, the scenery, sets, production, all make for a fun watch. And that's what this is a fun movie watch. Yes, Josh Brolin is an outstanding actor, this isn't about that however, it's just a fun movie, and it delivers on exactly that. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
