You know what's surprising? A great cast, a pair of lunatic screenwriters and a badass premise can still make a terrible, unbelievably half-assed movie. I know! It's never happened before in the history of film! And yet, it somehow happened with Jonah Hex, a movie so bad I'm actually having difficulty coming up with a comparable example of its flagrant awfulness.
Don't get me wrong; I think Gerard Butler is a talented enough guy. I also think he's handsome, funny on talk shows, generally inoffensive, and I found him to be one of the least annoying things about The Ugly Truth. So it's not like I don't think he should be a movie star, because, sure, why shouldn't he? It's just that I'm worried his career path is increasingly molding him to be a lesser Jason Statham in the end, and whether he's been trying to rival the Statham or this whole thing is just a coincidence, I still don't like it.
