    I like the original, my friends wanted to go see this one...I was apprehensive becasue I didnt think it could live up to the original.

    WRONG! It was GREAT!!!! Not only was the action good, and the movie well paced, there was good humor in it as well.

    I also liked the young girl better in the new version than the old one.

    thanks for the review. John Wayne, Glen Campbell, Kim Darby... Jeff Bridges, great cast. Can't wait. Wish they'd make more Westerns.

    I completely agree with your comments on the movie. I thought it kicked ass on the original. I thought the original bordered on silly, and the remake was darker and much edgier.

    As much as John Wayne is an icon, I felt that Jeff Bridges was a much more interesting Rooster Cogburn.

    Also, the young girl was great. I always thought the one in the original was obnoxious and bratty. The new girl was a tough, smart, likeable character.

    I'll buy it when it comes out on DVD.

    I would give the movie 6 out of 10 stars.
    Wasn't too impressed.
    Never saw the original..

    Little girl played an excellent role tho.
    Whole movie revolved around her.
