Great film with a mix of action and comic relief. Hailee Steinfeld's performance is fantastic. This film makes a 20-something want to find more Westerns to watch.

I didn't think I would like this movie because it is a remake...what a nice surprise...excellent acting and directing...very entertaining....this movie proves a Western movie can still be made today and be so entertaining...The Coen Brothers are great once again!!!!

One of the few remakes that is better than, if not as good as, the original.

A fun remake by the Coen brothers. It's a bit of a hodgepodge though. While at one time using precise dialogue and story lines at many points, it also omits important pieces from the original and completely re-works the end which for fans of John Wayne is somewhat unforgivable if you are familiar with the Rooster Cogburn character. To take such a liberty, really makes it a different story. I also found the girl's performance lacking when compared to Kim Darby from the original. Still, a fun film for sure.

This girl was such a good Mattie - much better than the older version's Mattie (that girl was just annoying). Matt Damon did an excellent job playing the prideful yet silly Laboeuf. But I have to stay loyal to John Wayne's Rooster. Bridges was a very good actor but Wayne had more spunk! I did not like the ending - though it held true to the book. Wayne's version had such a touching end to it.

It was OK. I enjoyed Mattie's character and the rest of the cast did a good job. The ending was anti-climactic.

In “True Grit” the chase is central to the plot but when this comes to an end, it is quite anticlimactic. It is perhaps for this reason that I wish Brolin would have had a greater part in the movie. Overall, I enjoyed the film. The character of Mattie, in particular, reminded me of Jodie Fosters’ (a favorite of mine) early roles.

True Grit ---- (DVD - 2011 Western/Cowboy) ---- As this show is an un-needed Redux! ---- Lots of gruff talk witout a real substance as the Original Movie. The final battle and rescue was better: the first version/film had more drama in the end. ---- Some films should just be left alone!! ---- (Maybe, Mr. Bridges could'nt jump a fence) Enjoy! ---- RichardPaul (finished 4-13)

fine acting by Bridges and the young lady - damon a lot more likable than bourne character - barry pepper gives fine performance - james brolin gives preview of character in "no country for old men" and one of his best performances - very realistic to degree for history buffs - Highly recommended!

Ned - You answer me Rooster! I will kill this girl. You know I will do it!

Rooster - The girl means nothing to me - she's a runaway from Arkansas.

Ned- That is all very well. Do you advise that I kill her?

Rooster - Do what you think is best, Ned.

Wayne's version:

LaBeouf - What are you doing?

Rooster - back hands LaBeouf

Gotta love John Wayne's blase when delving out whacks of justice.

Lucky Ned Pepper: "What is your intention Rooster? You think one on four is a dogfall?" Rooster Cogburn: "I mean to kill you in one minute, Ned. Or see you hanged in Fort Smith at Judge Parker's convenience. Which will you have?" Lucky Ned Pepper: "I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man!" Rooster Cogburn: "Fill your hand you son-of-a-bitch!"
