    True Grit is a great and satisfying western adventure film. Its a story of friendship and redemption. The Coen Brothers made this film which I now believe is one of their best work. Jeff Bridges plays as the town's best bounty hunter, who gives a very good and likable performance. Now making his character (Rooster Cogburn) one of the most loved western legends. It does a good job on capturing the time period set in the wild west back in…

    I finally managed to see the latest Coen brothers movie with their own unique stamp on it! They successfully introduced much rougher version of the lawman Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges) who is bit more gritty and less likeable but a version which fits perfectly with the determined young 14-year-old lady by the name of Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) who is looking to avenge the murder of her father. The chemistry brought to the big screen between Bridges and Steinfeld was…

    Excelling in everything from costumes to score to script to direction, and featuring strong performances, True Grit is clearly the finest performance in the Coen brothers resume. Hailee Steinfeld gives a gorgeous and memorable performance that alone justifies her emergence into the Hollywood scene.

    I always have to remind myself that this is a Coen brothers movie. This has to be their most traditional narrative and it works. Gorgeous looking, funny, and sentimental. A remake, but well worth it.

    Great performances all around. Great atmosphere. I saw this right after seeing the original, so Steinfeld's performance took some getting used to, as it was probably the most distinct difference between the two films.

    Maybe the best shot Western of all time, at least in recent memory.

    True Grit could easily be an excised book from the Old Testament set in the 19th century America, as the unforgiving grips of the Coen Brothers feel little restraint in cuddling their characters.

    Faithful to the book. Mattie is one of my favorite female characters ever. She's not perfect, she's just a girl, but she's smart and badass when she needs to be. Her final appearance, the final shot of the film and its accompanying song, is just lovely.

    Great all-around acting (I was especially impressed by child actor Hailee Steinfeld in her debut), very distinctive tone and overall voice, and just genuinely one of the best Westerns I've ever seen.
