Much more a reimagining of the Charles Portis novel than a remake of the Oscar-winning John Wayne movie, filmmaking brothers Joel and Ethan Coen's take on the Western tale boasts Jeff Bridges' effective performance as Rooster Cogburn, the grizzled lawman enlisted by a spunky youngster to find her father's killer.

We just watched this movie last night and it was really good. Jeff Bridges did John Waynes part as good as he did. And Hallie Steinfeld played the part of the young trouble girl about her Dads death and whn she caught up to her father;s killer she played it very well. I recomend this to anyone who like westerns and even if you do not like westerns. It is about getting true justice..

I saw the original movie with my then boyfriend and now hubby, in Sept.'69. I truly loved it! Of course, I was a and still am a great John Wayne fan. Then last year when the Jeff's take on Rooster came out we went and saw it again. I was NOT disappointed. Jeff made the character his own and we both enjoyed the movie the second time around. They chose the greated they could find to play the characters for this version of the movie. Thank you for NOT trying to recreate the original, but allowing the actors to create their own take on them. It brought back memories of being us being 19 again, yet let us enjoy being 60 and loving a story all over again! I am going to get both movies when available!
