One of the worst comic book adaptations of all time, starring Josh Brolin as the title character- a bounty hunter with a burned face who can communicate with the dead.
It quite simply doesn't work, the story is riddled with terrible cliches, boring characters, lame action scenes and poor visual effects.
I also couldn't decide what was uglier, Josh Brolin's appearance or Megan Fox's pathetic attempt at acting.
The only positives are that it was mercifully short at a mere 81 minutes and that Fox's awful performance ensured that she stayed off cinema screens for a number of years.
