Well I just finished True Grit (2010) and rather that re-typing all this I’m going to copy and paste my Netflix review because I damn lazy.
First I’ll say I’m bias since I can’t stand John Wayne and think he’s a horrible “actor”. That having been said I think I did a good job looking past that to judge this film against it’s original, I didn’t just look at the character, I looked at the film as a whole and I still feel that this was far superior. True it is a bit slow, but it’s not so slow that you loose interest. The acting was perfect, they really managed to make it seem realistic, in fact you really start to feel for the characters, that’s the sign of a good film in my book! I say give it a shot, you may just like it.
