When I originally saw the trailer for Jonah Hex I was excited to go see this movie, but after the critical mauling it received, I decided to give it a miss.
Months later, while browsing through Blu-rays under £10 on Amazon, I came across this movie and decided to give it a go.
It's difficult to recommend a movie after it's received such critical hate across the board, but I will try and convince you to give it a go.
There must have been times when you've watched a movie and wondered why it received such critical hatred? This is an example of such a movie!!!
If you watched the trailer and thought it looked good - chances are you will enjoy this movie.
Yes it's very short at just over 80 minutes, but to me it felt longer!
Yes it stars Megan Fox, but let me tell you, she's 100 times more annoying in the Transformers movies!!
Many reviews have stated that John Malkovich looked bored. I disagree. I saw John Malkovich acting like how John Malkovich usually does in the majority of the movies he's in. No complaints there!
This is a brainless, fun, popcorn movie. Simple as that. If you look at the positive reviews on Amazon, many say that if you go into this expecting the worst, you will come out of it pleasantly surprised, and I totally agree!!
Finally, let me say this; In the last couple of days I've watched Captain America & Jonah Hex. There is one film I'm going to keep and one film that I'm going to trade in at CEX. Captain America was a huge disappointment! I found Jonah Hex much more enjoyable and will be keeping it in my collection while I'll be trading in Captain America for another movie!!
I hope this review helps those who are hesitating on whether or not to buy this movie!!
At the end of the day I'd give this film 7 out of 10.
