Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"At 81 minutes with credits, Jonah Hex feels crude, lazy and entirely perfunctory."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"Begins affably enough as a random slew of Leone-style squint-a-thons and shoot-outs but then loses it way in a dopey, anachronism-happy sci-fi plot."
‑ Cliff Doerksen, Chicago Reader
"It's popcorn-chomping fun rooting for the soul-stripped Hex as he battles his way toward redemption and sweet, sweet payback."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"The mark of a good actor is being good in a really bad movie. Josh Brolin is a really, really good actor, because most of the time he's on screen speaking you can almost forget what a loathsome, irredeemable, turd of a film Jonah Hex is."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"The film is simply too brief, too befuddled and too delirious to do the comic book legend justice."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"There's just one ingredient missing: anyone with a clue."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"Calling Jonah Hex a waste of time requires qualification, given the action flick weighs in at 82 minutes."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"It's a little too brief to get bored exactly, but it's certainly long enough to get frustrated at the lack of the essential ingredients to get the audience engaged in its story."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"When it works, which it does quite often, it's one of the better comic book adaptations of recent years."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"An awful excuse for cinema that ultimately fails in nearly every way possible."
‑ David Roark, Christianity Today
"All three of you clamoring for a sequel to Wild Wild West have got your wish."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"Bracingly inept."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, L.A. Weekly
"It's a standard Western revenge tale dressed up with supernatural elements."
‑ Simon Reynolds, Digital Spy
"Seems almost calculated meticulously to suck the life out of its audience as much as humanly possible..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"...remarkably two-dimensional, showing evidence of having been edited down from something more complex."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
