Josh Brolin embodies the DC Comics character who gives the Old West a supernatural twist in an adventure that barely made a dent at the summer movie box office, but has some creative moments along the way.
A bounty hunter who's pursued by the law himself in the wake of the Civil War, the literally scarred Hex is enlisted to stop a renegade colonel ( John Malkovich) whose plot against the United States involves the undead - and who has taken a heavy personal toll on Hex. Megan Fox expectedly enhances the scenery as the prostitute fond of our hero. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; deleted scenes. ** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
