Critic Reviews of "True Grit! (1969)"TIME MagazineDecember 01, 2010
By growing old disgracefully as the fat, swaggering Rooster Cogburn, Wayne proves he can act -- and solves his own senior-citizen problem in one master stroke.Chicago ReaderDecember 01, 2010
Somehow it comes off like a TV celebrity roast.VarietyMarch 19, 2009
It's mostly Wayne all the way. He towers over everything in the film.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Lazily directed by Hathaway, it's pleasant enough, if rather too self-consciously coy.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
One of the glories of True Grit is that it recognizes Wayne's special presence.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
A marvelously rambling frontier fable packed with extraordinary incidents, amazing encounters, noble characters, and virtuous rewards.Common Sense MediaApril 18, 2017
Classic Western with memorable characters, some gun violenceExaminer.comJuly 01, 2016
Maybe it is not great cinema, but it is great entertainment.America MagazineJuly 29, 2015
An undeniably vivid, exceedingly well directed (by veteran Henry Hathaway) frontier tale that "tells it like it was."Parallax ViewMay 01, 2011
If I had to pick only one True Grit movie to take to the proverbial desert island, it'd be Hathaway's, Wayne's, Ballard's and, while we're at it, Elmer Bernstein's...Lessons of DarknessJanuary 05, 2011
Far too often for True Grit to quite overcome, [Wayne's] larger-than-life turn flirts with, if not outright topples into, self-parody.Groucho ReviewsDecember 30, 2010
The girl with the strength of a man, and the man with a sensitive heart (albeit under layers of crust). The calculated softening of Wayne's macho persona at long last won him the Oscar. [Blu-ray]
