Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Jonah Hex -- a disappointing action Western based on a comic book hero created in the early '70s -- is very violent. Hex acts mostly out of revenge (killing many without remorse), and the body count is high, though there's relatively little blood and gore. There are some spooky images connected to the movie's supernatural elements, plus many weapons and scenes of things burning and exploding. The female lead, a prostitute, is seen wearing skimpy lingerie throughout the movie (which may be enough to draw in some fans of actress Megan Fox...), and there's the suggestion of sex. Language is on the light side, and there's not much drinking.

Sexual Content

Lilah is clearly a prostitute, and she wears skimpy lingerie throughout the film, but her job and the act of sex are never mentioned out loud. She sees several male clients, who are shown on their way in to see her or after they're done; all are fully dressed. Some innuendo. Lilah is seen in bed with Hex; she's clothed and he's shirtless. She touches his chest, and they kiss.


Intense violence on all sides -- characters are shot, stabbed, slapped, chopped, and burned, and the body count may be in the dozens. Jonah Hex shoots all kinds of guns -- including Gatling guns and a special kind of crossbow gun with flaming arrows -- and he kills many people, onscreen and off. The villain obtains an explosive weapon that blows up entire towns, and his henchmen use everything from guns to knives to dynamite. In one scene, Hex watches, helpless, as his wife and son are burned alive. Lilah is slapped around but mostly stands up for herself.


The dialogue is often hard to hear over the movie's mayhem, but an exclamation of "Jesus Christ," plus words like "bastard," "hell," and "ass."

Social Behavior

The hero's main motive is revenge. He kills lots of people -- they're implied to be "bad," and he doesn't seem to have any remorse. His one selfless act is to put down his gun to save Lilah's life.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Hex is seen drinking in a bar, with no obvious effect. A Native American medicine man blows smoke to heal Hex's gunshot wounds.
