2010 Shootout of the Year Winner

True Grit


This was actually a pretty tight race, I liked all of these scenes but none of them was the real standout.  The only thing really holding True Grit back was its similarity to the comparable scene in the original film, and ultimately that’s just something I needed to get over.  Without that baggage this is simply the best gun fight I’d seen this year and its mix of gunfire and equestrian was something we hadn’t seen on screen in a while.
