A new retelling and a new classic ! I didn't watch this until a few months after my purchase . I didn't really think too much of the old John Wayne version . I just couldn't believe that Jeff Bridges could pull this one off . Boy , was I wrong !! This movie rates with the greatest all time Westerns !! His attitude , his look and demeanor are perfect ! Hattie Steinfeld who plays Mattie is perfect , Matt Damon was perfect as the Ranger ,and the rest of the cast were as good in they're roles ! Too bad there can't be a PT. 2 !!!
