Sweet revenge

Sweet revenge

This western flick based on Charles Portis’ novel by same title is about 14-year-old girl Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) quest to kill her father’s murderer Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin). Let down by court she finds the unlikely companion in one-eyed gunslinger US Marshal Rooster Cogburn (Bridges). They are joined by Texas Ranger LeBeouf (Damon), a known talker but reliable man with his gun.

The film lives up to its title -powdered revenge story with love, humour and action since the start. The landscapes look wild and rusty. The cast has acted well. The unlikely story of 14-year-old girl who wanted to avenge her father is itself odd but Steinfeld makes its realistic with two well know actors Damon and Bridges by her side.  This film will appeal to both new age and old cowboy film fans.
