This was alright.
The first act and the story being predictable at times is really what brings True Grit down quite a bit. But the characters in this film are likeable enough to make this film worth the watch.
I will say that I'm not a fan of the ending. But this is based on a novel. So I guess they couldn't change that. But at the same time, I haven't read the novel. So if this was added on NOT from the novel. Then I was a bad decision. It just ruins the warm heart buildup the film gives us in the third act.
