Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) fights for the Confederacy till his commanding officer, Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich) orders him to burn down a hospital. Hex refuses and kills his best friend and Turnbull’s son Jeb. Turnbull tracks down Hex, ties him up, brands him and forces him to watch his family burn to death. Native Americans then find Hex and revive him with their mystical powers. Hex wants Turnbull dead, but apparently Turnbull dies in a fire, so Hex  turns to bounty hunting.—-This is the first 15 minutes of the movie.

Know the film is based on a comic-book, I’ve read the comic and it’s story lines were better. Why they destroy a good plot line for special effects is beyond me. Was really looking forward to seeing this movie and was disappointed by the treatment they gave the Hex comic.

“I’m gonna hand Turnbull your balls in a snuffbox!”

Brolin is Hex–but the story is ridicules–pass it up—–03/10
