Can Jonah Hex Possibly Be Good?

Lesser known comic book properties usually get — and give — the shaft when it comes to movies. Daredevil, Constantine, Steel, Catwoman, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Punisher, Elektra, Ghost Rider… these movies are terrible, and the more “gritty” and “dark” the characters they star, the worse the movies generally end up. I don’t know why this is. But I would have bet anything that the Jonah Hex movie would have joined this group and, at best, have been mediocre. But this new trailer is making me wonder:

I’m not thrilled with the faux AC/DC soundtrack — I hope it’s merely a ploy to make mass audiences subconsciously think of Iron Man 2, and not actually the score to the movie — but damn if the movie doesn’t look action-packed and fun. There’s some great lines and a lot of people getting shot. Megan Fox seems to be playing in her range (I think she does have a range, and super-hot prostitute in definitely in it). And maybe I’m crazy, but it doesn’t feel like this trailer contains the only good scenes of the movie, but just some of the good ones — I’m not sure why, but it does. Anyone else agree with me?
