This review is from: True Grit [DVD] (2010) (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!

Excellent film - much better than the J Wayne original. Funny and terrifying. Brilliant.
