True Grit Reviews
Great movie, very entertaining, though the language is a little difficult at times and you get the feeling that you might've missed something.
Would give it a 6 stars if I could!
The Coen Brothers deliver both an excellent remake of the classic original, and a movie that stands on its own. It looks beautiful, and is packed with amazing performances and exhilarating western action.
the script is so well written that i throughly enjoy almost every exchanges in the film, so much so that i actually thought the first third of the film, when Mattie is running around time, is the best part. Also, what a well-acted film: I am not sure if Hailee Steinfeld will be equally good in other roles, but as a first timer, she was unreal for her role. And god bless Jeff Bridges; please make as many films as possible from now on, i cannot really recall one time when i do not enjoy his performance (okay maybe Tron). Josh Brolin is also great in a very limited role.
So i think this is just a hair below No Country for Old Man, but a movie most people should definitely check out.. unless you have no capacity whatsoever for witty dialogues films. Easily one of the best modern western films.
