TRUE GRIT

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

Like the 1969 film ver­sion of Charles Por­tis’ novel, this is a good but not quite great movie. Jeff Bridges plays Rooster Cog­burn as a fallen hero who would rather snort than shoot. New­comer Hailee Ste­in­feld gives us a Mat­tie Ross who is a child war­rior on the vengeance trail, and Matt Da­mon is just right as the con­fi­dent Texas Ranger out to prove he can al­ways get his man. This is a Coen broth­ers movie, so ex­pect dark hu­mor, ironic twists, and sud­den blood­shed. Rated PG-13. 128 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Reel Deal, Los Alamos; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Robert Nott)
