Okay, so i was going to watch this movie after Toy Story three... but i don't know anymore. Who's seen this movie... is it any good? I don't know, i became skeptical after reading this article where it said that Jonah Hex bombed with a 5.1 million dollar opening weekend...... that's horrible IMO... specially for a movie that was hyped to become the new face of summer.
I will be seeing toy story three for sure though

i was suppose to see this with my best friends but he didnt show, so i ended watching it by myself, the movie was trash, from the begging i though it was going to be a action packed western, but its so wierd and its so short at 1:45 min i think. the story was rushed, also megan fox has like a 15 min of movie time, i think i will go see toy story 3 to erase that movie from my mind!

Straight rotten brah. Don't be foolish and waste your money like I did.
Like that other guy said, very fast and very short. The storyline is broken, it just doesn't click. Acting was sub-par but then again you don't see alot of acting, you see Jonah going from one location to another, then 5 mins later another, then 5 mins lather another.

BUT damnnnn did Megan Fox look yummy.

Do DC comics to movies great hope other then Batman is Green Lantern next year then.


and of hopefully Nolan working on the Superman franchise can restore that to some glory.

Sorry, that doesn't make sense when I read it...

Back on topic though - This film looks pants. I was interested in seeing it before I saw the trailer and that looked like a pile of shit at about 2 minutes long, let alone just under 2 hours long ! Disappointing. Was hoping that this was going to be as good as the comic book that I had heard so much about.

Megan Fox's horrible acting ruined this movie for me, just like it ruined Transformers (more than it already was), and pretty much anything she's ever been in. I get it, people like to look at her...so why doesn't she do porn instead? That would fit her acting abilities perfectly, and it'd be giving the people what the want. Win-win.

Fantastic idea, but there is one problem.... She needs to agree (in principle) to do it. I'm sure she would given the right amount of money ;)

What did you expect from Megan Fox and Hayward, who's only movie before this was the Ruin Another One Of My Favorite Children's Books Horton Hears a Who? He should have stayed with Pixar (where he was an animator on some great films). No marketing and crappy trailers show that even the studio knew it was going to suck beforehand. I did hear Brolin was great, but seems to be that's mostly people reaching for something good to say about the movie.

I didn't realize it bombed, but it makes sense. I kept hearing the radio ads and with out the benefit being able to see the dancer outfit, Megan Fox's accent is really terrible. I suspect she was not hired for her acting ability.

The only thing standing between Megan Fox and a career as on-screen cumdumpster is her career as an off-screen cumdumpster. She'll keep getting in movies so long as she keeps washing Michael Bay's car and letting that fucking weirdo videotape her doing it.

Anyhow, Jonah Hex sucks but don't let a box office reaction turn you off a film. Most of the time, it just hasn't been marketed particularly well. Moon tanked but it was an awesome movie.

OHh yea, i usually don't let that bother me. I mean, some movies make huge blockbuster numbers... but suck.
But come on.... this movie was hyped up so bad.... i bet it cost a couple hundred million to make too.... and it all went for only 5.8 in opening weekend... that is probably one of the worst openings ever.... well that i can think of.

It cost 53 million to make, so it took it 10% on opening weekend.

Yeah? We don't have to spend every penny that we have on those people. Sorry, but entertainment is a huge part of the world, and we have every right to spend millions on a movie.

Sure the problems around the world need fixing, but we can't just pay for them to be fixed.

I haven't even heard of this movie, but I'm pretty sure I'll give it a miss now.

Still dismal though right?
I mean, i thought that it'd be like in the 20 millions...... but dang.
Hopefully this is a career killer in movies for Fox.

Christ, wanna jump any further down my throat?? Its my opinion, get over it. Thats yours, fair enough.

Yeah I know entertainment is a big part of the world, then maybe celebs shouldnt bang on about making poverty go away and such when millions gets spent on movies. Just thinkg 53 million is a silly bollocks sum to use to make a film.

I wasn't jumping down your throat, I just disagreed. I'm sorry.

Celebrities are annoying when they talk like that, they only really say what they are told to say. A lot of films cost a lot more than 50 million to make, I can imagine Harry Potter to easily reach the 100 million mark.

I honestly think it's impossible to make poverty go away, there are too many people in the world to help without taking away from others. If we spent all our money on people in need, we would in turn become those people. It sucks, it really does.

Sorry, its bloody hard to read emotions through text lol! So Im sorry.

Its mad to imagine films cost this much, I guess I dont think about it. I would never see that amount of money in my life time lol. But wow, bet the producers for this film are mega pissed off then if they only made 10% like Minty said.

Why would you even think this movie would be good? It looked stupid and it had Megan Fox.

Directors use her as a draw. People go "omg its teh Megan Fox!" and will watch the movie no matter what.

I'm not going to lie... i thought it was kind of cool when i first saw it, not because of Megan Fox though... although i will admit they casted her for a role she knows how to play all to well... a whore.
I was forced to see her in transformers and didn't even bother seeing Jennifer's body... looked more stupid than scary.

I cannot wait when her acting consists of "Oh my! Your penis seems to have found its way into my mouth. When you are done with that I have a vagina needs filling."

It was alright, I didnt know megan fox was in it until i saw her in the movie.
It could have been a lot better than it turned out to be. There were some really weird parts in the movie though so heads up

Im so happy there are so many people who hate her, my ex adores her. Shes a talentless munter. Jolie wannabe IMO and I refuse to watch her in any movie. I watched Transformers and OMFG, I will never get those hours back *weeps*

I loved Johan Hex in the Batman:The animated Series episodes

but its so wierd and its so short at 1:45 min i think.

I do want to point out the movie is even shorter than that at 1:21. I think it would/could have been better if they had Jonah Hex do some more bounty hunting and other things making the movie longer before getting on after the main bad guy. A bit more build up.





<Spoiler>
Also, how is he dodging bullets at the beginning but couldn't dodge them when fired from the Irish guys gun later?

I haven't seen it yet, had always planned on renting it when it came out on Blu-ray/DVD. But I like the reaction some local radio show hosts had to it's poor performance opening weekend. One host thought that maybe people couldn't stomach the thought of sitting through the movie, looking at that ugly face. The other guy said, "Yeah, Megan Fox!"

I was exited when I first heard about it. Once I heard about megan fox being in it I was like :\ but was still going to give it a chance. Even if they replaced her it would still have been a horrible movie.
I don't even know if I would give it a secodn chance if they released a directors cut with an hour added footage to build the story.

I think I liked the original cut of Daredevil twice as much.

Well, thankfully I never wanted to see it anyhow. Knowing it bombed makes the desire to not want to see it even more valid.
