True Grit Movie Reviews

"A new classic. "TRUE GRIT" is packed with action and laughs. Great filmmaking. Great Movie. Great Acting. Saddle Up. A vastly entertaining Wild West show that is memorable in every particular." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"A classic American Western. Damon expertly navigates the line between foolish and lovable, and Bridges is sublime. "TRUE GRIT" is a classic expertly revisited." - Mary Pols, TIME

"'TRUE GRIT'S' a new Coen bros classic. A star is born in Hailee Steinfeld. Damon nails it & Bridges is killer good. The Dude does the Duke proud." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"Bridges pulls off a total physical reinvention, complete with whiskey-stained moustache, rotting underbite and trademark eyepatch. The actor seems to have absorbed the character into his very marrow, and though Cogburn seems perfectly set in his ways, the greatest pleasure of the film is watching how his attitude toward Mattie goes from patronizing to paternal over the course of their adventure." - Peter Debruge, Variety

"The Coens lay their more deadpan filmmaking voice over the proceedings, but at least as screenwriters they're truer to the original story, and to Mattie's place at the center of it all. Her grit is the headline. And yes, it's better than the original." - Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

"I loved everything about the movie. Jeff/Matt/Hailee were fantastic, especially Hailee, what an amazing performance. The dialogue was perfect, the cinematography... I could go on and on!" - Claudia Puig, USA Today

"I loved the movie. Can't wait to see it again" - Susan King, LA Times

"A solid, expert piece of entertainment with a dark Coen underbelly." - Steve Pond, TheWrap

"TRUE GRIT is a true winner, a triumph on every level for the Coen Brothers and one of the year's finest movies." - Pete Hammond, Box Office Magazine

"Genre-defying and impeccably crafted, this is a film that only the Coen brothers could make. Jeff Bridges is brilliant, jumping back at the front of the Oscar pack alongside Matt Damon who does his best work in recent memory and is my early pick for Best Supporting Actor." - Sasha Perl-Raver, NBC's Popcorn Biz
