Rooster Cogburn (True Grit squel) Review.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

Directed by: Stuart Millar
Genre: Western, Adventure
Release Date: October 17, 1975
Running Time: 108 minutes
MMPA rating: PG

The Good: Funnier than the first True Grit, John Wayne is again great as Rooster Cogburn, Katharine Hepburn gave a good performance,

The Bad: Not as original as the first True Grit,

Plot: Because of his drunkenness and questionable use of firearms, aging U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn has been stripped of his badge. But he's given a chance to redeem himself after a village in Indian Territory is overrun by a gang of violent, ruthless criminals, who've killed an elderly preacher, Rev. George Goodnight. His spinster daughter, Eula Goodnight, wants to track the criminals down and makes Rooster an unwilling partner. But Rooster must use care, because the criminals, led by Hawk and Breed, have stolen a shipment of nitroglycerine. Watch the movie to see what happens next.

Plot: 8.7/10- Thep plot was a little more generic than the first but still worked.

Action: 7.1/10- There was action but nothing spectacular.

Acting: 9.2/10- John Wayne and Katharine Hepburn were great together and very funny.

Special effects: N/A

Soundtrack: N/A- I can't find the soundtrack on YouTube but it wasn't very memorable.

Comedy: 9.5/10- Rooster Cogburn is a very funny movie with some funny one liners but it is not a comedy.

Overall: 8.9/10- Overall Rooster Cogburn is one of the better western but not the best.

Closing comments: Rooster Cogburn is not as good as first True Grit but it is a very good movie.

Recommended for: Western fans, Adventure fans, True Grit fans,
