lower you expectations and you will still be disappointed

I missed seeing this film when it was released, probably because none of the cinemas tried to show it and it went straight to dvd. So I waited for the film to be sold at a very low price, having read bad reviews.

I found the film really painful to watch, but it did have the saving grace of not being too long. Well this might be the reason why the film is so painful, with so many difficulties with production, they just put together whatever they had on the cutting room floor and made the movie

The Mark of the Demon

This is a big screen adaptation of the DC Comics character Jonah Hex, a horribly disfigured bounty hunter who avenges the innocent in a post civil war American wild west. It's a dark, supernatural western, with Josh Brolin effortlessly managing to capture the grim personality of the comic book character perfectly, the supporting cast of characters work, and John Malkovich once again plays a great villain. The film has a decent pace, suitably atmospheric cinematography, and features action scenes that do not have the standard over the top CGI effects that most comic book adaptations use, the soundtrack too, fits with the overall look of the film and its subject matter, and features a mix of music by the heavy metal band Mastodon and film composer Marco Beltrami. The film received poor reviews, which resulted in a box office flop, but watching the film on Amazon Prime, knowing that it's a comic book adaptation, and knowing that the character is an antihero, as opposed to the superheroes flooding the genre, the film itself isn't half as bad as many make it out to be. Overall, it's a grab a bowl of popcorn and switch off from the real world movie, enjoy!

Slimmer milk than Malkovich....... thin, thin, thin. But let's all be honest, it was probably the time when all the good scripts disapperated with the Panama papers and the cast were happy just to be working on something other than another empty Oceans. Plus when less than half a dozen of the cast have character names you know it's heading for the 3am slot on a plane to nowhere....(flickering the monitor of the guy snoring two rows ahead of you, in an aisle seat.)

This is not the film you think it is.

Not really sure what to say, when a film has to use exposition to explain stuff rather than show it it kinda lets you know what you're in for. It's plot is paper thin, and could be written on the back of a postage stamp. The acting is pretty subpar, with one noticeable exception of course. Even then JM's lines are so drab and uninspired it's mind numbing. There is no tension, no sense of actual progression. Unless you love this genre avoid this.

Jonah Hex, such a shame there's nothing to see
Verified purchase
This could have been a good film, had it only been made in 'the good old days'. Unfortunately it suffers badly for the sake of the art and naturalism that afflicts such a high percentage of modern digital cinematography. With far too much of it blacked out and indiscernible, the action became very difficult to follow.

I'd heard it was bad but sometimes bad films can be entertaining. This wasn't, not in the least. It's trying to be a cross between Sin City, Wild, Wild West, Cowboys and indians and is basically the filmic version of a rice pudding, hamburger, durian and spinach shake. (with anchovies). Basically it's dreadful and embarrassing.

Complete mess

Bodes well with a decent cast but rapidly turns into a frantic, aimlessc movie with mystic pretentions and, worst of all, a soundtrack which is the pits.

Josh Brolin deserves better than this dreck
