Storyline

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>

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[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.

Good movie
23 April 2011 | by yuri_hiphopSee all my reviews

As first: The actors are very good. Second: The special effects are awesome. Third: There's a story to it.

This is a great movie that you nearly never see any more. It's got a fun theme: Wild west, and it is kind of a superhero movie. If you look at the new movie: Cowboys & Aliens, then Jonah Hex looks way better. Also the actors were great. There are quit some famous actors, like Megan Fox, and the roles are also being played very well.

The special effects I can describe in one word: Awesome. Every special effect is well done, like the huge explosions. Also the clothes and view is very western and good.

The story is well thought. There is a real storyline, not like there isn't in some other movies, like scary movie 4.

The only thing that is a bit of a pity is that the movie is only one hour and nineteen minutes. That is really short.

So there for I give the movie as rating: 8
