NonsenseFilm's AJ Taysom writes:
"The American Western is a timeless film genre. Throughout its many years of existence, it has stayed true to its old time formula. There are always; gunfights, horses, dashing heroes, unkempt villains, and riding into the sunset on said horses after the unkempt villains have been taken care of. I wish I could say that the new film from the Coen Brothers, True Grit, was something of a revolutionary film in the genre and it changed things. But alas, I cannot because it does not. That being mentioned, who said change was necessarily a good thing? Let me go on with the rest of the review, and maybe you will see what I mean."
