I saw "The Missing", but I never had the idea, that the story could be taken from "The Searchers". It wasn´t as good as "The Searchers", never! But it wasn´t too bad...
I never tied in The Missing as any type of remake of The Searchers. Other than the search for the girl, there is very little other resemblance. Nothing can be as good as The Searchers, IMO, but like Dukesfan stated...The Missing wasn't bad at all. I've watched it several times.
As for the remake of True Grit, can't be done to any satisfaction for us to even want to see it. There will always be only one Rooster J. Cogburn.
