Jonah Hex

DC Comics cult favorite western comic finally gets to the big screen this week with Josh Brolin sporting the classic facial dis-figuration that the character in known for. Hex's nemesis, Quentin Turnbull, is played by John Malkovich who killed his family and sets him out on his trail as an infamous bounty hunter seeking revenge who is also approached by the government to track down Turnbull so the bounties on his own head can be expunged. With any western you need a local saloon/whorehouse and the whore with a heart is played by Megan Fox who unfortunately does not bring anything to the role that could not have be done by any other young starlet. The movie is pretty short but the story is complete and does have some nice re-animated dead scenes that push the narrative along. This film is not going to make much money at the box office unfortunately but it does deliver for the fan in me who counts Jonah Hex as one of his favorite DC Comics.
