agree with akuma587.. It was, quite allright, but that's that. Expected a hell of a lot more then this..
Relative to the Cohen Brothers' other magnificent films, True Grit is a milquetoast amid true brilliance. While there is nothing particularly wrong with this film, it seems to lack a focused point to its story that could give the viewer any satisfaction. What's more, the aversion to contractions in dialogue draws the viewer out of the film so frequently that it's hard to ever settle in to enjoy it.
Honestly one of my favorite Cohen brothers films and probably the best true western since Unforgiven. Beautiful cinematography by Roger Deakins, and great performances by Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Hailee Steinfeld. A great update of the John Wayne classic, dare I say better? Its too bad this movie didn't win as many awards as it probably should have.
