TRUE GRIT is a revenge flick that IS gritty…and layered with several moments of dark humor. Hailee Steinfeld owns this movie from start to finish, carrying the whole thing on her 14 year old shoulders. While Melissa Leo rocked in The Fighter, I have to say this young woman should get the gold. Jeff Bridges is a blast playing Rooster and Matt Damon delivers as a Texas Ranger who runs his mouth more than Cogburn drinks his whisky. Throw in Josh Brolin as the big baddie who at first seems more slow than bad, then becomes B-A-D…and you have a well done popcorn movie. A warning though: if you don’t like westerns, steer clear…and if you do, prepare yourself for a script that’s a lot more clever than you would expect.
