Humorous, epic, and smart as a whip, "True Grit" is an all-American western and classic.

Mattie (Kim Darby) travels to Fort Smith to hire U.S. Marshal Reuben "Rooster" J. Cogburn (John Wayne) to avenge her father’s murder. Some of the background characters and unnecessary scenes kept the picture somewhat lengthy. Action sequences, score and cinematography were wonderful. If only there were more likable characters and action for this western. True Grit is an authentic film of its genre with a rare strong leading lady in a young Kim Karby, Hopper and Duvall.

One of John Wayne's best western performances.

A prim young woman enlists the aid of a crotchety old US marshal to track down the outlaw who killed her father. This characterful western from the old school has had a lot of plaudits, but to me it's not much different from many other of Wayne's outings. John Wayne plays John Wayne yet again, and if you don't cotton to him this sure as spit ain't gonna change yer mind. The story is simple but the amusing bickering between Wayne and the hard-headed Kim Darby makes for some fun scenes, as does some great cameos from Strother Martin, Dennis Hopper and Robert Duvall. It seems a little overlong for what it is, Glen Campbell's character being a little irrelevant and everything after the great showdown seems rather superfluous but it's a good, solid old fashioned western that won't disappoint …
