Following the murder of her father by hired hand Tom Chaney, 14-year-old farm girl Mattie Ross sets out to capture the killer. To aid her, she hires the toughest U.S. marshal she can find, a man with "true grit," Reuben J. "Rooster" Cogburn. Mattie insists on accompanying Cogburn, whose drinking, sloth, and generally reprobate character do not augment her faith in him. Against his wishes, she joins him in his trek into the Indian Nations in search of Chaney. They are joined by Texas Ranger LaBoeuf, who wants Chaney for his own purposes. The unlikely trio find danger and surprises on the journey, and each has his or her "grit" tested.
Long time haven't seen western movies, but this one, was a hell of a movie. Great great acting by all actors, Jeff Brigdes made this movie shine. Hailee Steinfeld did a great job. A must see for western movie fans. I will give 9/10.
A faithful adaptation of the book, not the John Wayne film. Some great performances and the usual quirky Coen feel to the movie which I always love.
The ending is the one from the book, not the Hollywood feel good ending they put on the end of Wayne's movie. In that film they wanted it to tie up with a planned sequel, the imaginatively titled 'Rooster Cogburn.'
I like the fact that the Coens stick with the book's endings in their films rather than change them to make them more crowd pleasing. The much maligned ending to No Country For Old Men was faithful to that of the book.
I think this was a far more interesting ending than John Wayne jumping over a fence on a horse.
Having said all that, this isn't one of the most interesting stories and I'm a little surprised they chose to make this movie. I think they are far better when they write their own stuff like The Big Lebowski or Fargo.
Worth a one time watch.
The acting is great, the characters interesting and somewhat convincing with their execution of the witty and candid dialogue but there just seems to be something missing from the overall production. It feels too easy. There's no real thickness to the plot and there's an element of black comedy throughout that carries the film along higher than it's storyline.
It's a half decent western but a true cowboy-enthusiast will recommend a hundred other films before this one gets a mention.
I have not had the pleasure of seeing the original film but this was as good as I had hoped. All of the acting was great and I loved the characters. Jeff Bridges was great in this. You loved him, then hated him, and then he won you over at the end. A lot funnier than I thought it was going to be. I will be seeing this again that's for sure.
I had to go back and re-watch the original version, which was a treat in itself, seeing all the movie stars as young actors or still alive was very nostalgic for me.
Comparing the two, would be unfair knowing that the Coen style of Film making has a certain rhythm to it that's almost a signature trait in all their films.
I felt the new rendition could have used the back-story like the original- but of course that's a matter of opinion. There was a lot of iconic dialogue that was re-used from the original but also a lot of "clever" ones left out.. " A rat with a writ.." when John Wayne was drunk and shooting at a rat comes to mind from the original.
Anyhow- I enjoyed the new version, but enjoyed the older one more after watching the new one.
I am a long time fan of the Cohen's Bros.(i've seen all of their movies) and certainly of Jeff Bridges since his first steps in The Last Picture Show..but this last effort has left me utterly disappointed,the film is a poor remake of the original,with dialogues badly in need of subtitles and meaning,shot mostly at night,too dark,too slow,actionless and hardly credible..great waste of talents for me..only for old memories a 3/5.
very good remake..only actor i felt left his role as a copy was the Ned pepper role who could easily be robert duvall again (hope I got that right lol) but the others brought not only a fresh take but a deeper feeling.
the film is different enough to warrant its existence as a companion film with a realistic bent and gritty outcome.
the language in this film is beautifully played out..a modern American Shakespeare play..really listen to how the language both flows and carries itself from bit players to major roles its just astounding.
for me the young actress and the language stand out..closely followed by Jeff bridges in a role that would have seemed impossible to most to fill but he makes it his own..great stuff especially as the focus is no longer on rooster but Mattie
An excellent remake( which i rarely say)..Jeff B does a great job as Rooster C. I really do love the original but at the same turn I'm happy Hollywood didn't ruin the remake. Great directing and story telling..this remake follows the book a lot more closely then the original. 4/5
