4.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable film 1 July 2011
By Trev-R TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have been looking forward to seeing True Grit for a while, missing it at the cinema I bought the Blu-ray. I was not disappointed, the film lived up to its reviews. While I did not want to compare it to the original I could not help particularly comparing Hailee Steinfeld's performance as Mattie Ross with that of Kim Darby. I would have to say that Hailee Steinfeld won it by a whisker. Hailee being a 14yr old playing a 14yr old where Kim Darby was 22 when she played the role.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless 10 Sep 2011
Format:DVD
It's a rare occurrence when I sit through a film so utterly engrossed that I have no criticisms of it at all. But True Grit managed that feat. Which makes the plethora of negative reviews all the harder to understand.

Beautifully and atmospherically shot (with a slight fairy tale quality), it also boasts engaging performances from Jeff Bridges, a hard to recognise Matt Damon and especially the young Hailee Steinfeld who is totally captivating. Most of the film's charm is due to her precocious self-confidence.

I've not seen the original, so can't compare, but I urge you to ignore the poor reviews here, see the film and make up your own mind.

And all this from someone who doesn't usually like the Coen Brothers!

5.0 out of 5 stars True Grit 22 Jun 2011
By T. Ross
Format:DVD
Definitely the best film I've seen this year. Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon both play outstanding roles, with without doubt the star performance is by Hailee Steinfeld.
If, like me, you have fond memories of the original film with John Wayne and Kim Darby, and are worried that it might be just a pale re-make - don't be. It's a brilliantly scripted, directed and shot film that stands up in its own right.
It deserves a place on anyone's one-to-watch list.

I suppose the simplest way to describe this movie would be to say it's a remake of the John Wayne version with all the sentimentality (not to say camp) drained out. Whether you think that makes it more enjoyable than the original depends greatly on what you're looking for in a movie.

John Wayne has been, beyond question, in some outright great movies, and he makes the earlier version highly watchable basically by just doing his John Wayne thing throughout. But his very best movies have got something more, and personally I think he often did quite a bit better than "True Grit." (Best of all in "The Man who shot Liberty Valance", where his John-Wayneness is shown to epic advantage by the terrific compare-and-contrast performance of James Stewart.)

Not even Jeff Bridges can really make up for not having John Wayne in a Western, but for my money (YMMV and I don't blame you) this is a better film in every other respect. In particular, Hailee Steinfeld does a great job of making the 14 year old avenging angel Mattie Ross actually believable (no mean feat when you stop to think about it.)

Comparisons are odious. Watch both! (If you watch the JW version first, you'll have the bonus of picking up some sly homages in the later version, too.)

5.0 out of 5 stars this remake def has some 'TRUE GRIT' 23 Oct 2011
By XANDER
Format:DVD
Watched this terrific Coen Bros remake - back to back with Waynes original movie , its now my second fav Coen bros film ,and just behind my fav ,which is Fargo

Love both the True Grit films ,and this TRUE GRIT remake is fantastic ,it definitely does the original justice - and then some , its perfectly cast , and all the actors are magnificent in there roles ,it's funny in places , sad in places ,and has some great moments of suspence and action

Some of the most memorable lines from the original movie are back , but one line that was left out ,that I would like to have seen left in - was when Mattie says something about Cogburn definitely having True Grit / when Cogburn on horseback single handedly charges the four other cowboys near the end of the movie - just felt it was far too memorable a remark ,and shouldve been kept in ,and I felt that the final shootout scene was a bit more epic in this remake , there's also some great new scenes in this movie ,I also felt that the end few scenes brought more emotion out of me in this one - than they did in the original film , the end is changed slightly in places , but it works really well

A must see western , and one of the best classic movie remakes EVER - period

3.0 out of 5 stars Definately Worth Watching 23 Jun 2013
Format:DVD
Well, I've seen both films several times and read the book, so here goes.
For me, westerns are like sci-fi films, they say more about the period in which they were made rather than the period that they are depicting. This is definitely 'grittier' than the John Wayne, but that alone does not make it a better film, just a different one. Jeff Bridges is excellent, althogh it is true his accent is very difficult to understand some of the time, but perseverence brings rewards. Matt Damon is ok, Hailleee Steinfeld is very good (and should have been nominated for actress, not supporting actress, as she is clearly the lead charecter in this version, as well as the book).
As to it being more faithful to the book than the previous version, this is not true. It has the book's ending, which the John Wayne film does not, but there are truncated scenes, and missing ones (the part in the book where the deal is made at the start, for instance, is mostly missing), and some other scenes are altered (such as LeBoeuf going off before Maddy meets Chaney, which the John Wayne version has the same as the book). In all, however, it is a very good film, and so is the John Wayne one, neither are rubbish and it is churlish of anyone to say so.
The book is outstanding, however, and I would recommend it to anyone.

No spoilers. Just be known that you most likely wont watch it more than once. Other western movies are definitely better.
