The Coen Brother's adaption of the novel turned out to be a vast improvement from the first which has cemented it's legendary status. The story from what I understand is more true to novel by putting it in the perspective of the young girl played brilliantly by Steinfeld. Not only that but Jeff Bridges delivers with a better portrayal of the rascal Rooster Cogburn over John Wayne's original and Matt Damon manages to hold his own too. It's also worth noting the art direction and costume design that really beautifully captures the period. Overall a fine addition to the Coen brothers' filmography and a superb adaption true to its original source.

Wow...It's So Enthralling & Just Grabs You, Sinks You Into It & Then Finally Just Rips You To Pieces.. Very Well Done, Close To Supurb.

A swift and flawless film that knows what it is and gets the job done. Perfect combination of dialogue, action, humor and sentiment. The Coen brothers' best work.

A good ol' fashioned Western from the Coen brothers. The plot isn't unique... it's a tale of retribution and revenge. But the star power packs a punch and carries the film. The setting feels very much like an old Western.

Puntaje Original: 6.0

Otro trabajo impecable técnicamente de los hermanos Coen, pero como siempre sin esencia.

With solid performances and good cinematography, this is an enjoyable yet not so violent western. Perhaps it dragged a little towards the end and few scenes seemed too staged. AAN AFI 1001

A waste of money. How can you remake a true classic? An Oscar winning performance by the Duke can not be remade. This remake is why you don't do remakes of classic movies. Bridges is an awful actor in this movie. He try's to get his voice as close to Wayne's as he can & you can't understand some of what he says. The girl playing Miss Ross is dull and boring. She doesn't give the same performance as Kim did in the original where you wanted to wear her butt out with a belt. This remake is almightys a carbon copy of the original. Where people on here & on IMDb like Robert W get this is a top rate movie, is being paid by the directors & studio. If you haven't seen either of the true grit movies & you would like to, please see the Oscar winning performance of John Wayne's True Grit.

Loyal to the book with great acting and a compelling screenplay, the most recent True Grit is a far cry from the John Wayne version. Grayer, grittier, and laced with dark humor. The brothers Coen achieve mightily.

Brilliantly made film. Out does the original. See it!

Arguably the best Western film of the 21st century, True Grit truly is a masterpiece. Hailee Steinfeld is genuinely great, somehow managing to keep up with acting heavyweights like Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin, all of whom also deliver fantastic performances. The Coen Brothers prove how great they are as directors, and the script is expertly written. The story has plenty of slow moments in between top-notch action scenes, yet it never gets boring. I haven't seen the original film or read the book, but True Grit stands on its own with ease.

Very well made movie, but the story was just way too much talking... barely any action. Didn't watch a Western for talk talk talk.

A good reboot of the 1969 True Grit, the Coen brothers always know what to do with a good story. One critique I have is there weird cuts sprinkled around, but it does not majorly affect viewing experience.

While watching this film I kept waiting for the moment when it would really kick in and wow me. However, that moment never came. Don't get me wrong, the movie was pretty good, I just feel like it was missing something that would truly make it an all-time great. Hell of a performance from Steinfeld.

Not too bad as film but not too likely to be true either. It however has many qualities. The psychopaths seems less dangerous at first. Not full of anger, only coldly calculating. Seems like the frenchie and the indians are treated as out of character, not surprising in an english film. The film is still about a chase of bad guys by good guys. Nothing about indians in the indian territory, which seems excessively unlikely. Although, since it was in the 1870, it's possible the indians were all decimated already.

A wonderfully-acted, wild-west adventure film that hits all the right notes and entertains consistently throughout.

Not bad. Good performances, particularly from Bridges and Steinfeld. But it felt unnecessary.

An excellent remake of the classic John Wayne movie of the same name with Jeff Bridges in the John Wayne role, Matt Damon in the Glenn Campbell role and Hailee Steinfeld in the Kim Darby role. The movie follows the original story very closely with the exception of the beginning and the end. A young girl recruits an aging federal marshall to capture the killer of her father. Also the soundtrack is very different in that it uses traditional church hymns and not the Glenn Campbell song.
