True Grit

The Coen brothers are known for making off-beat movies that are dialog driven, very similar to Kevin Smith movies. True Grit is a story about a young girl, whose father had been murdered, that hires a tough no-nonsense US Marshal named Rooster Cogburn, played by Jeff Bridges, to hunt down the killer. In the process they team up with a Texas Ranger named LaBeouf (Damon) who is also looking to arrest the killer.

The action is far and few in between and some of the comedic dialog is mostly dry except for a few one-liners from Cogburn. Overall, this movie will be much in the same as the previous Coen brothers films. It’s not horrible and it’s not great, but it’ll somehow gain cult status from their fans.

Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
