    Nutty? Maybe. But a pungent blast of the cinema du bonkers is just what this summer's multiplexes need after weeks of bromide-stuffed retreads that are as smug about their lack of originality as packs of teen girls who dress exactly alike. Mock Jonah Hex if you must, but you can't say you've seen a lot of other supernatural Westerns lately.

    At times Jonah Hex carries whispery echoes of The Searchers and Sam Peckinpah.

    Actually, it's hard to have any thoughts while watching Jonah Hex – the cranium-crushing soundtrack takes care of that.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    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.

    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. Perish it, throw an ax in its heart, then burn it to a crisp.

    The only thing sadder than Jonah Hex is what appears to have happened to his movie.

    Never boring. It is, however, frustrating.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Brolin is so damned good in the saddle, in the hat and in the part that a half-sober viewer could half forget how half-arsed this movie he's starring in is.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Built on spasms of explosive summertime action interspersed throughout a vacant shell of an origins story, animator-turned-director Jimmy Hayward's first stab at directing a live-action film ends up feeling like one great, big missed opportunity.

  • Betsy Sharkey

    Brolin's intermittent voice-over narration proves to be the most powerful stuff, with the rest curiously sputtering.

  • Manohla Dargis

    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.

  • Steve Persall

    Jonah Hex isn't abrupt by design but by desperation.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    It admittedly starts off great guns, but all too quickly it becomes apparent that the big-screen arrival of the supernatural Western DC Comics series Jonah Hex"is firing loud, empty blanks.

    If all you want is a bullets-and-bombs B-movie, you'll get your money's worth: Somehow, Hayward makes 82 minutes feel like hours.

  • James White

    Isn't one "Wild Wild West" enough? Okay, so Jonah Hex didn't come with the same expectations, but it's still an object lesson in how not to adapt a comic book. A crushing disappointment.

  • Justin Chang

    The film's noisy, slam-bang approach and lack of imagination in all nonvisual departments will keep it from rounding up a fresh generation of thrill-seekers.

    Variety Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    A mercifully fleet and lamentably uninteresting adaptation of the DC Comic about a war-weary Confederate soldier.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The opening frame of Jonah Hex should say: "Caution: Made expressly for the male teen demographic. Not suitable for anyone of any age who prefers movies with coherence, an original plot or characters they give a hoot about."

    Jonah Hex may not be the longest 81 minutes you ever spend, but it might well be the most tedious.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The star is done in by the deathless mediocrity of the production, an assemblage of random camera shots, messy editing, redundant scenes, and witless dialogue as haphazardly stitched together as the flesh on Jonah Hex's face.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Jonah Hex somehow manages to waste the talents of Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Michael Fassbender, Will Arnett, Aidan Quinn and Jeffrey Dean Morgan in a story that combines vengeance, the occult and an Old West war on terror (really).

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Mark Keizer

    Conceptualized and re-conceptualized, written and re-written, shot and re-shot, cut and re-cut, the final product is the world's longest short film.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    The resulting film makes Sam Raimi's "The Quick and the Dead" look like a stone cold neo-Western thoroughbred.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    It's a challenge to take a comic-book adaptation that stars Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Megan Fox and drain nearly all the fun out of it. Jonah Hex is one of those movies that combines a certain amount of being ridiculous on purpose with a great deal of pseudo-profound silliness. Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    Bracingly inept.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Cliff Doerksen

    The result, messily directed by Jimmy Hayward, begins affably enough as a random slew of Leone-style squint-a-thons and shoot-outs but then loses it way in a dopey, anachronism-happy sci-fi plot.

  • Peter Travers

    Jonah is fated to ride alone. Don't make the mistake of keeping him company.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    Visually, Jonah Hex is an orgy of overstatement: rapid edits, garish colors, harsh light.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • John DeVore

    Jonah Hex tries to hedge its bets too much, and the result is a movie that probably won't please the few faithful with Jonah Hex bedsheets, nor fans of mindless summer action flicks.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    The best part of Jonah Hex is Josh Brolin on a horse. Especially when he's not saying anything, just moseying into or out of town. Too had he never moseys into a better movie.

  • Keith Uhlich

    All three of you clamoring for a sequel to "Wild Wild West" have got your wish: Jonah Hex--an adaptation of the DC Comics series about a Western antihero with otherworldly abilities--gives that Fresh Prince–starring disaster from 1999 a run for its wasted money.

    Every once in a while, a film limps into theaters so stitched together, it's a wonder it doesn't rip apart in the projector. Jonah Hex is such a film.
