Easily one of John Wayne's best!!! The scenery is by far the best in any of The Duke's movies, it is absolutely stunning and magnificent. The action scenes are correctly spaced and genuinely exciting. And on top of it, the entire cast are perfectly cast in their roles, and make their absolute most out of their performances. Even if the film itself seems, perhaps, a little bit more deserving of an Oscar than John Wayne himself.

A true classic Wayne film. The acting was superb all around. Kim was so good you wanted to bend her over your knee and wear her butt out. It's a must see. Don't see the remake, see the original. The remake is basically a carbon copy

This film is probably one of Wayne's best performances. He plays the salty, aging, "Rooster" Cogburn, who had been hired by the young Mattie Ross to find her fathers killer. You will be doing yourself a favor checking out this flick. A classic, plain and simple.

Are you kidding? The re-make of "True Grit" with Jeff Bridges was good, but not in the same league with Duke. One of the best westerns of all times!

Not John Wayne's best but still pretty good

John Wayne is excellent in one of his more iconic roles as Rooster Cogburn. It's definitely a worthy classic film that everybody should see once. (First and only viewing - 6/14/2012)

A classic western styled movie and excellent adventure all in one

Not that great. Better watching the new one.

Working with true legends of the Western genre the film puts together a fun ride, but definitely a product of its time. The movie could be considered a road picture in a sense, but also a typical revenge action movie, but with less emphasis on the hate of revenge and more like an Arthurian quest in a way. It might be hard to watch today, especially with a truly amazing remake, but it is worth the view for fans of classic Westerns and John Wayne fans.

Solid Western. Much better than the overrated Coen brothers remake.

Ok movie starring the most iconic western Hollywood actor of all time John Wayne. I thought he would be amazing in this movie but it was a ok job, nothing amazing just ok. I thought this movie would crush the new true grit starring Jeff bridges but nope not all. For the first time ever the reboot is better than the original. For the time this movie was made I'm not surprised that this movie received a 90 percent on here but now in 2016 this movie is not a classic and should not be forgotten but just watch the new true grit. New is better, well in this case.

While True Grit is a classic and no one can deny how epic John Wayne was in this movie, there is also no denying that it has a rather sluggish pace with scenes that feel dragged out and unnecessary.

Wayne's masterpiece, aided by young Kim Karby and Glen Campbell in an earnest performance (he also sang the movie's theme song), plus a cast of veterans, and the marvelous Robert Duvall. Charles Portis' novels dialog is well rendered, the photography and scenery outstanding, the action memorable.
½ September 16, 2016
Gorgeously photographed comedy western in which feisty Kim Darby hires pot-bellied alcoholic John Wayne to track down her father's assassin. It's really every battle of the sexes movie you've ever seen but with horses and a rousing Elmer Bernstein score. Glen Campbell is pretty dull as the third main character, but sings the title song nicely.

Test for tagging! :D

A great western classic. One of John Wayne's best.
July 12, 2016
In all seriousness, The cast is good. But, feels too corny with the plot not going anywhere. However, the action and music is by far my favorite part of the film.

Humorous, epic, and smart as a whip, "True Grit" is an all-American western and classic.
