YouTube‘s got a pretty long clip from “Jonah Hex”, with the scarred bounty hunter and Megan Fox’s saloon girl making their escape from a gunboat. There’s a lot of cutting, which means the 90-seconds of action you see here was probably stitched together from various points in the sequence. And in case you were worried Megan Fox’s character was nothing more than a saloon girl-in-distress, you can stop now — she’s all grrl power, baby. Ridiculously too much so, some might say. Like they were over-compensating or something. Just sayin’.
Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone…and anything. Having survived death, Jonah’s violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the “other side.” His only human connection is with Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah’s past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary graphic novel, “Jonah Hex” is an epic adventure thriller about one man’s personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.
Starring Megan Fox, Josh Brolin, Will Arnett, John Malkovich, Michael Shannon, Michael Fassbender, Brandi Coleman, Natacha Itzel, David Jensen, and directed by Jimmy Hayward.
