True Grit


True Grit
True grit is the latest and possibly greatest from the genius Coen brothers (No country for old men, The Big Lewbowski ). This time around the Brothers take us to the wild west around the turn of the century, where we meet Mattie Ross (Elizabeth Marvel) looking for revenge against her fathers killer (Josh Brolin). She enlists the help of harden US Marshall Rooster Cogburn, and a young Texas ranger (Matt Damon), the bad of rag tag law makers set out into Indian country to bring some justice. Now that's the basic premise seems kinda cut and dry on paper, but let me tell you, this movie is a visual treat, beautifully shot by the Coens and the cinematography is just sublime, you will truly be transported to the west. On to the performances, all three of the lead (Marvel, Bridges, Damon) bring there A game to this, making you truly believe the characters. Damon and Bridges chemistry is amazing  bring genuinely funny moments to this film. Not that its a comedy by any means, when this film gets violent its gets VIOLENT, witch will please some. Now id usually put downsides but this movie was so well made and acted i cant think of any, even there small roles were filled by masters of the craft. Final thoughts, the mix of great directors and actors transports you into the world of the wild west, the way its meant to be seen. I cant recommend this movie more.
OVERALL:  9.5 OUT OF 10

  5. I think the 3rd act was a bit rushed. It felt like an episode of Walker Texas Ranger when she fell in the snake pit. Still a good flick with good performances, just didn't like the last act. 7.5/10

  6. have you seen the original? I watched both of them on consecutive days, and found that I liked the original one better. The girl in the new one seemed too brash, and anachronistic, compared to the first. The first one just seemed to pull off a "not obvious and loud" toughness. Idk. Following.
