Ethan and Joel Coen adapt Charles Portis’ novel with such panache and deathly reason that it bests the 1969 original. Beyond filling John Wayne’s shoes, Jeff Bridges creates a more believable character as U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn. His grit draws 14-year-old Mattie (Hailee Steinfeld), who wants to avenge her father’s murder by outlaw Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin). A Texas Ranger (Matt Damon) helps the hunt.
