True Grit Review

image from Amazon

Premise:
Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) pays a reluctant bounty hunter named Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges) to hunt down the former hired hand of her father's that killed him over a drunken dispute. Joining the two is a Texas Ranger named LaBoeuf (Matt Damon) who wants the same man captured for another crime he's committed. Unfortunately three's company and nobody can seem to get along!


My Highlights:
Mattie Ross meeting LaBoeuf, Mattie Ross meeting "Lucky" Ned Pepper, The big shootout


Overall Rating:
Just a terrific movie all the way through. The characters and character development were so well-crafted and well-delivered that I wish I had seen this movie earlier. The only thing that bothered me about this film is how it ended, as I felt it took a really depressing and drawn out turn. Still worthy of an easy 4 3/4 *'s out of 5 or 9 1/2 *'s out of 10.


When You Should See It:
RIGHT AWAY! It doesn't matter if you're into Westerns, actions, if you're male or female, this movie has everything for everyone. Everyone should see this film immediately!
