This is one of the ten best films of 2010. It brings out the best of what the old-school western used to represent and is resurrected in this film. It's a brilliant masterpiece from The Coen Brothers, a frequently funny, thrilling and tremendously exciting action-packed adventure...

Loved the script, the editing, and cinematography. Seriously, this movie is perfectly made in terms of technicalities. And what about Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross. Wow, extremely surprising that she did not win for best actress. Nevertheless, "True Grit" was an extremely enter...

This movie had a great screenplay and terrific acting by everyone on screen. The action sequences are nothing new and somewhat bring this movie down, but its sharp writing keeps its great from start to finish. Also, it was a lot funnier than I anticipated.
