'Jonah Hex' and the 'Losers' and 'The Unknown Solider' were three of my favorite comics growing up. Hell, the current run of "Jonah Hex' is excellent and does not include a cowboy with powers. He never needed them.
I have no love for the filmmakers who added a supernatural element to a character that was cool without any 'accessories' but I understand that they needed to find some way to include CGI in the old west. Now either it will work and be very cool or we will get another WILD WILD WEST. I can't tell from the trailer.
What is wrong with simple 'revenge' anymore. That worked when I was a boy and we were happy to have it. Everything this year has to be 3D or CGI heavy or we don't care. Good STORY will always make us care. When will they figure that out?
