True Grit 2010

This is quite a good day-in-the-life-of-a-bountyhunter western. It has mostly everything a western needs: an unsympathetic drunk with a good heart, sweeping shots of the prairie, slow buildup, some character development and the same morality most westerns do (an eye for an eye leaves everyone blind). Nice extra's are that a little girl turns bountyhunter, there are quite some funny moments, Bridges and Damon live up to their reputation and whenever there is some action, it's good.

Personally I thought there was too little action (at times I thought Bridges would never stop talking) and I thought it looked too polished and clean for a western. This film didn't make a lasting impression like for example Unforgiven. Then again; there isn't much competition for westerns these days, so I'm just glad to see a decent modern-day western!

Better than the J. Wayne version and far more true to the original story.

I LOVED this version as much as the original!

The way the story unfolds in the end it's pretty avarage, and not touching at all.
However, when you come to think about Mattie passing away and never seeing Rooster again it's kind of sad. And when you think that her revenge meant almost nothing, to her losing her hand, little Blackie and never seeing Rooster or LaBeouf.
It's a good movie after all, but I tough it would be epic or memorable.

Excellent movie. And I'm no fan of Westerns, so that's saying a lot. :)
