DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Western Adventure - This is a remake of the classic John Wayne western from the Coen Brothers--thus this is not a traditional action-filled western but something quirkier and darker. Fans of Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon will enjoy though Josh Brolin's screen time is limited. Adults are the target audience, and while a teenage girl is at the center, violence makes the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good True Grit 2010 surpasses its predecessor as the definitive adaptation of the novel and stakes out a place in the hall of fame of American Westerns.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good What strikes me is that I'm describing the story and the film as if it were simply, if admirably, a good Western.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good Joel and Ethan Coen have pulled off an impressive feat: repurposing a classic film with their idiosyncratic blend of dark, deadpan humor and palpable suspense, while remaining ultra-faithful to the novel.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 238 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! For a western, these are exceptional reviews. More than half absolutely loved "True Grit." Many more rated it above average which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much, but didn't love. As always, there are a few who only rated it average.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Mattie Ross (STEINFELD) arrives in Fort Smith as her family's sole representative, in search of the coward Tom Chaney (BROLIN), who is said to have killed her father for two gold pieces before setting out into Indian Territory as a fugitive. Beholden to follow Chaney and see him hanged, Mattie enlists the help of a man rumored to be the most ruthless U.S. Marshal in town -- trigger-happy, drunken Rooster Cogburn (BRIDGES), who, after many objections, agrees to hunt Chaney. But Chaney is already the target of the talkative Texas Ranger LaBoeuf (DAMON), who also aims to catch the killer and bring him back to Texas for an ample reward – which brings the trio to collide on the trail. Each willful and stubborn, each driven by their own rough moral codes, this unlikely posse rides towards an unpredictable reckoning, as they find themselves enveloped in the stuff of legend: mischief and brutality, courage and disillusion, doggedness and unalloyed love.
