Product Description

Amazon.ca

A 14-year-old girl needs a man with "true grit" to help her bring in the fugitive who killed her father. That she settles on Rooster Cogburn--a one-eyed, booze-soaked, potbellied U.S. marshal on the downward curve of his career in law enforcement--is the glorious springboard for all versions of True Grit: the Charles Portis novel, the 1969 western that won an Oscar for John Wayne, and the 2010 Coen brothers adaptation. The Coens have some mighty shoes to fill in their version, and their choice for the eye-patch is Jeff Bridges, who growls his way through an understated take on Rooster. Matt Damon plays LaBoeuf, the Texas Ranger who joins the hunt; Josh Brolin is the scurvy killer; and Barry Pepper is the leader of the outlaw gang. Working as usual with cinematographer Roger Deakins, the Coens exhibit their clear, crisp view of western places, thrillingly creating new takes on recognizable vistas such as the frontier town, the snowy forest, and the isolated cabin at night. The Coens revel in the incredibly ornate dialogue, which allows their sardonic attitude to bleed into the material--young actress Hailee Steinfeld doesn't seem at all fazed by the language, which may be a key reason she got the job as heroine Mattie Ross. While True Grit doesn't have the heft of the best films in the Coens' arsenal (there's something very formal and even a wee bit academic about their stroll through this familiar text), they do create a pleasant sense of a good yarn, retold around the campfire for the umpteenth time. --Robert Horton

Product Description

Synopsis: True Grit is a powerful story of vengeance and valor set in an unforgiving and unpredictable frontier where justice is simple and mercy is rare.

Just fourteen, she enlists the help of Rooster Cogburn (Academy Award® Winner Jeff Bridges), a one-eyed, trigger-happy U.S. Marshall with an affinity for drinking and hardened Texas Ranger LaBoeuf (Academy Award® Winner Matt Damon) to track the fleeing Chaney. Despite their differences, their ruthless determination leads them on a perilous adventure that can only have one outcome: retribution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece Feb. 2 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn does have grit, but the movie's title is really a reference to the fortitude of a teenage girl, expertly portrayed by first-time actress Hailee Steinfeld. Bathed in the stunning cinematography of long-time Coen brothers collaborator Roger Deakins and a beautiful score by Carter Burwell, the film is a phenomenal and perfectly cast character piece. True grit means a lot of things, but in the hands of filmmakers like Joel and Ethan Coen it means one of the best movies of the year.

The Film 4.5/5

True Grit was nominated for 10 Oscars, but failed to win any. Jeff Bridges was unlikely to win after finally being recognized a year ago, but Roger Deakins (cinematography) and Hailee Steinfeld (supporting actress) were particularly unlucky to lose.

I'm generally not in favor of watching remakes, or Westerns, but this one is worth it. The Coens don't make bad films. The acting is superb and there's just the right balance between action, drama and humor.

The story is narrated and told from the viewpoint of Mattie Ross (Steinfeld), a 14-year-old girl who wants to hire someone to catch the man who killed her father. After hearing the qualities of the potential candidates, she approaches Rooster Cogburn (Bridges). He's a one-eyed drunk with a reputation for getting the job done. Perhaps she wanted someone with the same strength of character as her own?

One of the best scenes in the movie comes early. Mattie argues with a horse trader, wanting compensation for a horse of her father's stolen while under the trader's care, as well as a refund for four ponies her father bought.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as boring as I thought March 13 2012
By Sorpse
Format:DVD
you know i was expecting to fall asleep watching this one but decided to watch it because it recieved some award nominations and came from the same vein as no country for old me. Like that movie tghis one is a bit of a slow burner but also manages to somehow keep my attention. Not a whole hell of a lot happens but i liked the three main characters. They were all unique and interesting and interacted in dramatic fashion. For some reason i felt what it would be like in those days more so than i have with other westerns. They really captured a unique feeling. Still however since it is so slow and doesnt really go anywhere i cant give it better than 3 stars i just likke to state that i was pleasently surprised by this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true western July 24 2011
By joker
Format:DVD
True grit is considered to be the coen brothers first real western. i must say i love the characters. All the characters have a depth to them that makes them seem human. They can be amusing or frightening, and the character of Mattie ross should go down in history as one of cinema's true great female heroes. It took the coen brothers their own true grit to cast a first time actress in such an important role, but it does pay off excellently. Hailee steinfeld did not pay mattie ross, she is mattie ross. I am astounded her performance failed to win an oscar. Other veteran actors such as Bridges, Brolin, and Damon also deliver with expert direction from the Coens. You want to hear all that's going on even in scenes where it is a simple chat over business. If the original true grit is a classic, this new and improved film is a bigger classic. One of the greatest american westerns period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Feb. 3 2011
Format:Blu-ray
True Grit is an incredible movie with outstanding performances, and deserves all of its ten academy award nominations! An especially stellar performance from newcomer Hailee Steinfeld, who ultimately steals the show.

4.0 out of 5 stars i liked it Feb. 5 2011
By falcon
Format:Blu-ray
for me,this was a pretty decent movie,although overall,i liked the original 1969 version a bit more.i found this one dragged a little bit for my taste.it could have been a bit shorter.the acting was good though,especially by Hailee Steinfeld who played young Mattie Ross.i felt she has a lot of screen presence.the scenery was also very nice,and the action scenes were well done.i also liked the dialogue.if you liked the original,there are some things about this version you may like as well.it's all about personal taste.it;s directed by Joel and Ethan Coen,who always put put their own spin on things.if you're a fan of the Coen Brothers,you might want to check this one out.for me, True Grit (2010) is a 4/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved July 25 2013
By Jesse
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Stays true to the novel, and faithful to what a western should be. My girlfriend thought she hated westerns but was captured and mesmerized by Bridges performance as the lovable Rooster Cogburn. Exciting the whole way through, and it makes you think about choices we all make
