Jonah Hex Misfires

Jonah Hex

DC’s Jonah Hex bit the bullet at the box office this weekend with a ghastly $5.1 million.

The reviews didn’t help. With just 14% positive reviews of Rotten Tomatoes and a low 35 metascore at Metacritic, Jonah Hex turned theaters into ghost towns.

According to the Boston Globe:

The only thing sadder than Jonah Hex is what appears to have happened to his movie.

And the Washington Post:

Jonah Hex may not be the longest 81 minutes you ever spend, but it might well be the most tedious.

And USA TODAY:

The opening frame of Jonah Hex should say: “Caution: Made expressly for the male teen demographic. Not suitable for anyone of any age who prefers movies with coherence, an original plot or characters they give a hoot about.”

Woody proves the box office ain’t big enough for two cowboys.

Meanwhile, Marvel’s Disney sibling Pixar cleaned up with Toy Story 3 which raked in $109 million.
