True Grit – Old West Stories Review

When I first saw the True Grit advertisement, I didn’t want to go.  John Wayne had made this movie a legend and I didn’t want to see the legend destroyed.  Too many times have I seen a remake fail miserably.

Well I swallowed my reticence and headed off, ready to walk out early if it didn’t go well.

To say I was pleasantly surprised is a massive understatement.  Geoff Bridges has not copied the great John Wayne, he has created a new legend of his own.  I will be buying this movie as soon as it comes out.  If you are into old west stories, then you have to see this.  It depicts the classic lawman that, full of flaws and short comings, beats the odds in the interests of his own version of pure justice.

Follow the link to my page “True Grit” where I have given a full review and story line.  If you haven’t seen the original, bypass my review and just go now and watch the new movie.  Then come back and see if you agree with me at the “True Grit” page.

    I felt the same. I have watched the John Wayne version at least 30 times. I have loved it all my life, especially the scene when Rooster Cogburn rides single handed through the gang of bad guys and takes them out. Except for that scene, the new movie is better. In fact, a lot better.
