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.

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.

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

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

Jonah Hex is a good performance and a few good lines buried in a script whose authors should do a little time in writer's hell for scribbling it.

It's just too bad the movie didn't indulge its spookier, supernatural elements more, instead of relying on action movie cliches.

80 some odd minutes of bland, boring, tedious nonsense. Utterly inept and squandering potential at every opportunity, the only 'interesting' thing the film has going for it is an ending that is totally bizarro, terribly conceived and bafflingly stupid.

Jonah Hex is not a good movie, but it's a great cautionary tale about what happens when a film loses its way.

thin, dull, messy story that's short but feels much longer. It's all flashy explosions and effects and no substance.

Compelling plot and character development get lost somewhere between explosion No. 1 and explosion No. 78, but the film certainly satisfies the popcorn quotient for summer cinema.

It's based on some DC Comics characters, which may explain the way the plot jumps around. We hear a lot about graphic novels, but this is more of a graphic anthology of strange occult ideas.

If this represents the true vision of director Jimmy Hayward, then I have only one question: What was he thinking?

Here's how you know Josh Brolin has become a movie star: Jonah Hex may not be much with him, but without him? Perish the thought.

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.

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

The bad and the ugly are both covered, with a main character that has a scarred face and a deep desire for revenge. As for the good? That's more of a hit-or-miss proposition.
