It's popcorn-chomping fun rooting for the soul-stripped Hex as he battles his way toward redemption and sweet, sweet payback.

It's a little too brief to get bored exactly, but it's certainly long enough to get frustrated at the lack of the essential ingredients to get the audience engaged in its story.

It's a standard Western revenge tale dressed up with supernatural elements.

The mark of a good actor is being good in a really bad movie. Josh Brolin is a really, really good actor, because most of the time he's on screen speaking you can almost forget what a loathsome, irredeemable, turd of a film Jonah Hex is.

When it works, which it does quite often, it's one of the better comic book adaptations of recent years.

Seems almost calculated meticulously to suck the life out of its audience as much as humanly possible...

The film is simply too brief, too befuddled and too delirious to do the comic book legend justice.

An awful excuse for cinema that ultimately fails in nearly every way possible.

...remarkably two-dimensional, showing evidence of having been edited down from something more complex.

To quote Clint Eastwood's Monco in For A Few Dollars More, you people need a new sheriff.

The film shows its comic-book origins in good ways (stylish settings) and bad (too many scenes end in a gigantic conflagration).

Whether it's the director's fault or the result of studio meddling, this is a mess of a movie that's been cut to pieces.

It just gets louder and more nonsensical as it progresses, with Fox shoe-horned into as many scenes as possible.

Almost everything is wrong with it.

Having already bombed big-time in the US, our search for the biggest turkey of 2010 ends right here.

At least it's relatively short.

It's a loud and subtle-as-a-sledgehammer assault on the senses, though, at 81 minutes, mercifully short.

[A] dull and messy ride through supernatural Clint Eastwood territory.

An object lesson in how not to adapt a comic book. A crushing disappointment.
