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

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

There's plenty of bangs for your buck -- check out the dynamite-heavy ambush of a steam locomotive in the opening sequence.

Jonah Hex could be bigger, louder and longer, with more special effects and faster cutting, but it errs on the side of simplicity. And to that, let's all raise a shotglass.

Yes, it squanders its Sergio Leone-worthy source material, but it's a surprisingly entertaining disaster -- a sort of Concorde-New Horizons picture for the new millennium.

Only the idiosyncratic Warner Brothers would give us a wide-release summer movie that turns out to be an acid western.

You won't be blown away but if it's your thing, you will be entertained.

Jonah Hex is not a good movie. Not by a long shot... But that didn't stop me from having a hell of a lot of fun watching it.

It reexamines assumptions of good and evil-morality tale vs, trite entertainment-by confronting the hideous compromises people make with social conventions and their own desperation.

Though it has bad word of mouth, "Jonah Hex" is generally better, sprier and more diverting than most of the action flicks now playing, The A-Team included.

It's not going to rock your world, but if you're comfortable with the comic style and the super weapons/crazy guns that would have blown the minds of any Civil War soldier, the action will keep you entertained.

The Western, with its code of short tempers and cheap life, sprang from the Civil War, but few Westerns connect the dots to demonstrate how the war must have created hollow nihilists the way Jonah Hex does.

Not that anyone should confuse this with a good movie, but it features plenty of violence, plus Megan Fox in a corset. For action fans,that's entertainment.

I liked it so much, I really want to see the rest of it. It can't really be a 75 minute movie, right?

You could do worse than this and if you have been going to the movies this summer with any regularity, you most likely already have.

The lean story-telling works well for its taciturn characters and spare settings, presented by cinematographer Amundsen, and well scored with assistance from Mastodon.

Opening the same day as Toy Story 3 and an alternative for those who prefer their movies dark, no sugar, this likewise cowboy fantasy tackled a long taboo subject: The post-traumatic stress link between dirt poor Confederate grunts and Viet vets.

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.
