Oscar® nominee Josh Brolin plays Jonah Hex, a scarred drifter and bounty hunter who can track down anyone...and anything. Having survived death, Jonah's violent history is steeped in myth and legend - leaving him with one foot in the natural world and one on the "other side." His only human connection is with Lilah (Transformers' Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah's past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can't refuse: in exchange for his freedom, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (Oscar® nominee John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah's oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead.

Critics Consensus: Josh Brolin gives it his best shot, but he can't keep the short, unfocused Jonah Hex from collapsing on the screen.

Common Sense Says
Dumb, violent action Western totally misfires.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Jonah Hex -- a disappointing action Western based on a comic book hero created in the early '70s -- is very violent. Hex acts mostly out of revenge (killing many without remorse), and the body count is high, though there's relatively little blood and gore. There are some spooky images connected to the movie's supernatural elements, plus many weapons and scenes of things burning and exploding. The female lead, a prostitute, is seen wearing skimpy lingerie throughout the movie (which may be enough to draw in some fans of actress Megan Fox...), and there's the suggestion of sex. Language is on the light side, and there's not much drinking.
