I’d been waiting to see the remake of True Grit for a long time, and last night I finally got round to it. Sadly it was a big disappointment. Or that is to say that it was a big disappointment for me. I didn’t like the changes to the story and the way the ending was changed.
Overall it seemed to be a darker story than the original, with less hope in it, and I think that’s a mistake. Still, it’s just my opinion, and most of all it made me want to see the original again, which I really should own.
