Director: Jimmy Hayward
Cast: Josh Brolin, Michael Fassbender, Megan Fox, John Malkovich
Aimed at the more mindless of the teen male market – who go for violence, explosions aplenty, scowling loners and totty in tight corsets – and taken from a DC Comics series this is as inept a film as you could waste your money on.
For one thing, the chief thing actually, the acting is so bad it’s almost watchable, in spite of some high-profile performers.
Hex (Brolin) is the scarred, axe-wielding, gun-toting loner (who scowls his way through the film), a bounty hunter given a chance of freedom by the US Military if he goes after mad, bad ex-Confederate Quentin Turnbull (Malkovich) … the two are, as it happens, arch enemies.
It’s all cardboard characters with a swiftly and ill-prepared script, although Fox admittedly does look good – if otherwise useless – in that corset.
Star Rating: 1/5
