Most experienced moviegoers would tell us younger generation movie watchers it has been decades since Hollywood produced a western film. After watching “Jonah Hex” it is impossible for us to disagree. What happens when you have mediocre actors, an inexperienced director and terrible writers? You get “Jonah Hex,” the hands-down worst film of the year.
The actors in this film prove to viewers why they can never be taken seriously. Megan Fox has already started the timer on the bombing of her acting career, but this film will cut the red wire and bomb it in advance. Fox shoes how unimportant she thinks acting is to being a movie star. She plays a hooker in the film, which is unbelievable because of how amazingly gorgeous she is. It’s hard for audiences to connect with her character because the writers forgot to explain why she is in love with Hex or what her purpose even is.
Josh Brolin plays Jonah Hex who is a rugged confederate army traitor helping out the American government. In “No Country for Old Men” we all cheered for him while he ran from a notorious killer. In “Jonah Hex,” however, viewers want the main character to fail just so the movie can end. Brolin tries his best to carry the film on his back but fails to say the least.
Simply put, “Jonah Hex” is awful. This film should have never been made and makes me wonder how much money Hollywood producers have just sitting around waiting to be wasted. If you don’t believe me, send your worst enemy to this film and see how much more the situation escalates afterward. “Jonah Hex” is the longest 72 minutes ever recorded on film.
I not only dislike the film, but the fact that this film was even approved to be produced by filmmakers. I don’t understand how this film has passed through so many people’s hands without being cut from being shared with the public. “Jonah Hex” should anger its viewers because it is a direct attempt for Hollywood producers to rob viewers of their money for an exchange of 72 minutes of garbage. We must demand better from Hollywood so we never have to experience a film like this again.
