This quick Popcorn Review was taken from the Top Ten Movies of 2010 List:
This classic western revisit by the ever reliable Coen brothers is more of an adaptation of the old John Wayne classic than it is a straight remake. The story focuses on a bright and hardened young girl so determined to hunt down the man who killed her father that she is willing to team up with the washed-up drunken US Marshal played by Jeff Bridges. A mustachioed Matt Damon does his impression of Chuck Norris as a Texas Ranger and they all get together to track down the wormy Josh Brolin. This movie has everything you can want and more in an old west movie making it a solid choice on the top ten list of the year.
