I mean, Bridges, in my opinion, is better than his year-earlier Academy Award-winning performance, but he still ain't no John Wayne, and the people who think that Wayne did not give a performance as Rooster are in pure denial.
But dont get me wrong, True Grit is a very enjoyable film with some very solid performances, but its bereft of that very thing said films have: personality.
