Review of True Grit

True Grit, a surprising choice for the Coen brothers who are among the most original filmmakers of our time. This was supposedly a closer adaptation of Charles Portis' book and not a remake of the 1969 version starring John Wayne yet it is virtually the same movie, almost shot for shot. Only the ending differs from the original and is slightly extended and Hailee Steinfeld is more effective as Mattie Ross than Kim Darby was in the original. What I think they did improve on from the original is the dialogue which is probably closer to the period and the book. But making this version so similar to the original just might prove (and I hope I'm wrong) that even the Coen brothers are starting to run out of ideas as is the rest of Hollywood while we continue to be bombarded by remakes, re-imaginings and unnecessary sequels.

8/10

i prefer the remakes who are similar to the original version then a remake who are so different that you don't even recognive the original story... think of Planet Of The Apes (2001) Rollerball (2002) or Death Race (2010) they are bad :)
