Jonah Hex 6-inch Figures Arrive! Plus, the Reviews are Coming in!

The Jonah Hex figures have arrived and fans will be pleased to know that they look great, with likenesses that manage to do justice to John Malkovich as Quentin Turnbull , Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex and, of course, fan favourite and femme fatale Megan Fox as Leila. Each one stands about 6 inches tall and you can expect weaponry from the film to accompany the figures. Not to mention some pretty sweet cowboy hats. Look for the figures over in our Jonah Hex section:

Now, we know the figures are awesome and the Hex figure would make a great buy for fans of the character even beyond the film. But unfortunately, it seems like the movie itself isn’t looking too hot as it makes its way into theatres… Right Celebrity reports:

Early Hex reviews have called the western picture the possible “worst film of 2010”!

First the plot – “The U.S. military makes a scarred bounty hunter with warrants on his own head an offer he cannot refuse: in exchange for his freedom, he must stop a terrorist who is ready to unleash Hell on Earth.”

Sounds pretty good so far, right? Plenty of possible action ahead, decent plot and with a great cast line up of stars from Josh Brolin, to Megan Fox, John Malkovich, Will Arnett and Michael Fassbender. Apparently the Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor penned story falls short thereafter due to the mix of sci-fi with reality. Brolin’s alter ego, Jonah Hex, and his ability to resurrect the dead for interrogation purposes conjured a few chuckles among movie critics, calling it “stupid, supernatural bulls**t”!

Here’s what ComicBookMovie.com had to say when it came to Hex:

“I dont want to give away the ending but I will say the final showdown between Turnbull and Jonah Hex wasn’t very climactic. And honestly that was my biggest problem of the movie was the rhythm of it. It has a good story line but it was not well paced. It was slow for too long so as the viewer you would loose interest in the movie. I wouldn’t go as far as saying its the worst cbm ever, but I will say it had so much potential and I honestly was really let down.”

One source also went on to say that “Even with low expectations this film was a complete and utter mess.” Overall opinions in regards to the plot just go from bad to worse.

“I can tolerate a mediocre plot as long as I’m not bored out of my skull, but Jonah Hex meanders aimlessly for the majority of its runtime.”

Toy Story 3 is sure to leave Brolin and his crew in the dust this week since the pair open on the same day!

“Sadly, there’s no fixing this one. The problems are deeply rooted, and can’t be solved with an edit. Massive reshoots would be required, and that’s not going to happen before the 18th of June.”

Just released: JONAH HEX TRAILER!

We recently made a blog post about the Jonah Hex figures currently available for pre-order, but then we hadn’t seen a trailer for it.

Now we have, thanks to MTV News

In a word, the movie looks ‘ridiculous’. Whether we mean that in a good way or a bad way, I can’t say. All I can say is that Will Arnett has a moustache, Megan Fox has an accent and Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) has HORSE-MOUNTED GATLING GUNS. I would suggest that your reaction to that phrase will suggest whether this is a movie for you or not.

Jonah Hex Figures: Josh Brolin, Megan Fox and John Malkovich

New Jonah Hex action figures have now been listed over at CmdStore.com. Featuring some really impressive likenesses of actors Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and, of course, Megan Fox, the figures stand about 6 inches tall and can be pre-ordered to arrive in May.

The film itself has been delayed a few times and there is some bad buzz surrounding it, suggesting that it might not be up to par with the kinds of comic book movies that have been released in the past few years. Naturally, I still look forward to anything from the DC Universe and that it’s chock full of cowboy goodness only sweetens the deal.

And you know what’s even better? Well, as a Montrealer, I’ve already been thrilled by the video game development that’s been on the rise here, but now I am ECSTATIC! GameFocus.ca reports:

Following their announcement of a new studio opening in Montréal, Warner Interactive’s president Martin Tremblay told us via a phone interview that the new Montreal studio will focus on developing games based on the DC Comics license.

You might not remember this but Warner formed a DC Entertainment branch last year to specifically make use of the DC Comics characters in television, movies, videogames and other media. Tremblay didn’t give us any additional details, however with movie projects surrounding Wonder Woman, Batman, Jonah Hex, Green Lantern and obviously Superman, let’s just say that the Montréal studios’ first project could be a very important one.

Stay tuned.
