This is definitely worth seeing. A 14- year old, Mattie Ross, hires Jeff Bridges to track down her father's murderer. Her spunk and tenaciousness match any "grit" that a guy can produce. Matt Damon as a Texas Ranger is a secondary character, but shows how good he is as an actor. (He's different here than in other films) Jeff Bridges nails this role. He's great...as is Hailee Steinfeld (Mattie).
The 2010 version of "True Grit" is far better than the 1969 version. I know because I saw the 1969 movie on Turner Classic Movies. This version is close to the author's vision and Director Joel and Ethan Coan makes the film more real. Jeff Bridges is more in character than John Wayne. Hailee Steinfeld makes a impressive debut. The movie is beautiful to look at and sometimes remakes can make a difference.
Get real, you could not run a horse at that pace, for over 10 minutes. Otherwise, it was pretty close to the original with John Wayne.
A very well done remake, not as good as the original that I seen on the big screen in 69, but close to it.
I am not a western fan, but my husband is a huge fan. I was expecting a looooong movie, but that was not the case.
Mattie, the 14 year old character, did a great job! I was entertained...
I thought this was a fitting tribute to John Wayne and it captured the book and it's characters.
