DC Showcase Jonah Hex: Better than the feature movie, there I said it
31 January 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Jonah Hex has never been on my radar, when the live action film appeared I didn't even know it was DC until I watched it and alike most viewers I was far from impressed.

These little DC Showcase shorts are great for introducing people to new characters/ones they aren't familiar with and this is a great concept.

This runs for slightly over ten minutes and manages to tell a story. It's about Jonah rolling into town seeking his bounty but upon learning he's dead he sets about getting revenge on the brothel madam responsible.

This was enjoyable, this was on another level than the live action movie.

The creators of this need to be handed a budget and allowed to make a feature length movie because based on this it could be really good.

The Good:

Well written

Beautifully animated

Original plot

Great voice cast

The Bad:

Still not keen on the character

Things I Learnt From This Short:

Michael Rooker needs to do more voice work
