I was originally pissed that they were remaking such an original masterpiece, but when I saw it was The Cohen Bros and Jeff Bridges was playing Cogburn, and am stoked!!!

I just got home from seeing it and it was really good. Reminded me a lot of the good classic westerns. Great acting and the story moves really good. I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves westerns.

We saw it tonight. It was awesome! Even my 14 year old daughter and 5 year old daughter loved it! I would definitely recommend it, and I loved the original!

I thought both Damon and Bridges were awesome. both very flawed but likable characters. all the performances were good!

I thought that's what everyone from the south talked like.
