Storyline

Following the murder of her father by hired hand Tom Chaney, 14-year-old farm girl Mattie Ross sets out to capture the killer. To aid her, she hires the toughest U.S. marshal she can find, a man with "true grit," Reuben J. "Rooster" Cogburn. Mattie insists on accompanying Cogburn, whose drinking, sloth, and generally reprobate character do not augment her faith in him. Against his wishes, she joins him in his trek into the Indian Nations in search of Chaney. They are joined by Texas Ranger LaBoeuf, who wants Chaney for his own purposes. The unlikely trio find danger and surprises on the journey, and each has his or her "grit" tested. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Quotes

[first lines]
40-Year-Old Mattie: People do not give it credence that a young girl could leave home and go off in the wintertime to avenge her father's blood. But it did happen. I was just 14 years of age when a coward by the name of Tom Chaney shot my father down and robbed him of his life and his horse and two California gold pieces that he carried in his trouser band. Chaney was a hired man and Papa had taken him up to Fort Smith to help lead back a string of Mustang ponies he'd bought. In town, Chaney had ...

Over-rated beyond belief
9 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a stinker this film is. It was tiresome and painful to watch. Slow and boring.

I didn't like any of the characters, unlike the original True Grit.

First off, Hailee Steinfeld is a terrible Mattie. She is just so annoying. I don't think this is so much the character's traits. But it is the fact Hailee isn't a good actress.

She has been hyped up as some great talent. Far from it, she recites her lines almost parrot fashion and without any true emotion.

Secondly, Jeff Bridges is totally miscast here. The accent he uses is often incomprehensible. And for much of the film he sounds like Karl Childers from Sling Blade.

John Wayne's Rooster was a lovable rouge. Jeff's Rooster is a hobo-type figure who looks like he pongs rotten. He too recites his lines as if he's reading directly from the script. Nothing likable about him one bit.

I'm bored already writing about this film, all except it's poop. Unbearably tiresome, bleak, vacant and stale.

No wonder it won nothing at the Oscars. Finally the Panel saw sense to ignore it. So do yourself a favour and watch the 1960s version.
