True Grit

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Girded by strong performances from Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld, and lifted by some of the Coens' most finely tuned, unaffected work, True Grit is a worthy companion to the Charles Portis book.

Katherine Don Bitch Media I thought the film was excellent... [But] Don't skimp on the development of female characters just because the complexities are difficult to represent. We're going to notice. Jan 8, 2021 Full Review Ben Walters Sight & Sound Henry Hathaway's 1969 adaptation was highly faithful... The Coens' movie is less faithful than Hathaway's but stronger - the production, by their regular team, is formally superb - and weirder. Jul 10, 2018 Full Review Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online Disappointing overall, though entertaining at times, True Grit isn't exactly the Coen brothers best movie but they get an A for effort. Rated: C+ Sep 8, 2017 Full Review Emiliano Basile EscribiendoCine Intelligently, the Coens infiltrate their bloody discourse beneath the plot, as in the best classic cinema, where a great theme rides along a great story. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 10/10 May 2, 2024 Full Review Yasser Medina Cinefilia A film by the Coen brothers that rekindles, in a fascinating way, the fuse that was extinguished in revisionist Westerns. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 8/10 Feb 17, 2024 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson No dark area of detail or truth is unexamined or softened, even with the un-Coen-like PG-13 rating.

Alex L Great performance and cast in a beautiful locations Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/14/24 Full Review Geor G Don't make the mistake to watch this after the 1969 movie. The Coen soulless western cannot stand the comparison. Storytelling and, above all, performances leave a lot to be desired. And, being part of the MCU, does not quite qualify you for the role of Mattie, even in its oversimplified form in this movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/11/24 Full Review Audience Member A fairly basic and straightforward adventure movie, which I did not find much satisfaction in. Still, being a Cohen brothers film, it was well made, well acted and had good dialogue. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review Butch S One of the best westerns I’ve ever seen. Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Hailee Steinfeld, were ALL AMAZING..!! 👍💙😊🎯 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/17/24 Full Review Ant D A decent western flick. :) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/12/24 Full Review Howard H Lovely viewing with great acting from all. Young lady and Jeff create a fantastic friendship worthy of admiration. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Read all reviews
