During Grant's presidency, Jonah Hex is a remorseless bounty hunter. In the Civil War, he was a rebel whose honor put him afoul of a Confederate general, Quentin Turnbull, who murdered Jonah's family while Jonah watched. As a result of the ordeal, Jonah's face is disfigured and he can talk with the dead. After staging his own death, Turnbull, with a group of rebel stalwarts, hatches a plan to bring the Union to its knees. Grant wants Hex to stop it. While the nation readies to celebrate Independence Day, Hex and an unlikely ally have little time to stop Turnbull and his weapon of mass destruction. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Did You Know?


Megan Fox initially turned down the part of Lilah because in the script incarnation she read, she found it to be too violent and misogynistic. She changed her mind when Josh Brolin came on board and the script was rewritten. See more »


The flag flown by Turnbull's ship (with thirteen red/white bars and the blue area containing two concentric circles of stars +4 stars in the corners [35 total]) is the US CAVALRY Guidon, NOT the US Flag of Grant's era (which had 37 stars in 5 rows, 8/7/7/7/8 )

Even though the flag came into existence at the beginning of the civil war, it was reserved solely for use by the Cavalry ... all SHIPS were required to show either the US flag (Union and post war), or the Confederate Navy flag. See more »


[first lines]
Jonah Hex: War and me took to each other real well. It felt like it had meaning. The feeling of doing what you thought was right. But it wasn't. Folks can believe what they like, but eventually a man's gotta decide if he's gonna do what's right. That choice cost me more than I bargained for.

This movie might single handedly destroy Megan Fox career
17 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh my god, what was I thinking to watch this film with my brother. I cannot believe I paid any money at all to watch this rubbish film.


Megan Fox's acting

A script so bad that the writers should go back to 3rd grade. The movie is a mess. Very Noisy. Lacks imagination. Completely forgettable. I mean I could go on all day.

The only thing good about this movie is Josh Brolin, he gives a good performance as Jonah Hex, he tries to save this complete mess of a film. But sadly its too much of a bloated mess to save. I truly feel bad for him.

As for Megan Fox, she better start having some acting lessons, cause this movie has the potential to absolutely sent her career to the grave. After loosing her role in Transformers 3, she desperately needs to do something.

I can only give this movie 3 stars because Brolin, who you can see tried really hard and was successful portraying Jonah Hex. Its just sad that Jonah Hex was there, but the movie itself wasn't.
