I hate Hollywood sometimes.
They killed one of my favorite childhood comics. Killed it with fire. Damnit Josh, you should know better by now.
I have not read the comics so i cannot compare the two but as a stand-alone it is a mess..
With the big budget, star power and (appearantly) great source material, how come they made it look like a shitty straight to dvd movie?
The sometimes lousy special effects, bad editing, nonsense flashbacks/dreamsequences and a random heavy metal soundtrack just makes this movie look like one of those terrible videogame made into movies such as Bloodrayne, House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark etc.. (basicly most of Uwe Boll movies).
The titular character Jonah Hex(Josh Brolin) is supposed to be this anti-hero but just ends up anti.. Hell, even the irish bad guy henchman Burke(played by the amazing Michael Fassbender) ends up more likeable than our hero.
The only things that somehow makes me enjoy this movie is my love for a good revenge story, the fightscene between Fassbender and Brolin is cool(Cable vs Magneto anyone?), a few good puns and the short runtime that fits me just fine. Getting sick of those 150min movies..
Other than that, this movie does not offer much positive to write about..
Side note: Jonah puking a live crow which magicly heals his double gunshot wound to the chest is one of the most stupid scenes i have seen..
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
