"True Grit" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo, FilmCrave
17 July 2012
  • Excerpt: A fourteen year old girl employs the talents of a grizzled old US Marshall to track her father's killer. The Coen brother's re-imagining of John Wayne's western classic is actually not as different from the original as you'd expect. The biggest difference is in its lack of bravado; Bridges' Rooster Cogburn is more of a crotchety old has-been than The Duke's larger-than-life portrayal and the spectre of Death permeates the film in a similar way to Jarmusch's Dead Man.

  • Summary: Mattie (Kim Darby) travels to Fort Smith to hire U.S. Marshal Reuben "Rooster" J. Cogburn (John Wayne) to avenge her father’s murder. Some of the background characters and unnecessary scenes kept the picture somewhat lengthy. Action sequences, score and cinematography were wonderful. If only there were more likable characters and action for this western. True Grit is an authentic film of its genre with a rare strong leading lady in a young Kim Karby, Hopper and Duvall.

  • Summary: The Coen Brothers did it again, they remade an old John Wayne movie and did a great job at it. The violence wasn't too bad, it was just right and Jeff Bridges who plays Rooster Cogburn did the best acting job I have seen in a very long time in modern day movies. The cinematography was just excellent, I forsure give this move 9 guns out of 10 guns. Good job Coen Brothers at making one of the best westerns my eyes have ever seen.

"True Grit" by Yojimbo

  • Excerpt: A prim young woman enlists the aid of a crotchety old US marshal to track down the outlaw who killed her father. This characterful western from the old school has had a lot of plaudits, but to me it's not much different from many other of Wayne's outings. John Wayne plays John Wayne yet again, and if you don't cotton to him this sure as spit ain't gonna change yer mind.

  • Summary: The acting is brilliant in this remake of the John Wayne classic. The Coen Brothers make another great film. If you haven't seen this already, get it now.
