Hex gets his due
4 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

As a teenager, 'Showdown' served as my intro to Jonah Hex, the infamously scarred bounty hunter of the DC universe. And back then, an old west episode felt odd, but it all gels quite nicely. The story's told in flashback, it's got that great pulp Western vibe, and (here's the key) it's a brilliant use of the Ra's al Ghul legend to tie us back into the days of the frontier. There's plenty of action, explosions and a believable set piece onboard a hydrogen airship. Care has been taken with this story, and it shows.

And as an adult, I get a kick out of seeing David Warner and Malcolm McDowell reunited ("Time After Time").

This one's a winner.

8/10
