Film synopsis Grouchy bigot Walt Kowalski (Eastwood) thinks the world has gone to hell. Then an attempted theft of his 1972 Ford Gran Torino, an unintentional act of heroism and an uneasy relationship with his despised Asian neighbours prod Walt towards a kind of reluctant redemption.
This movie is one of Eastwoods best movies for a long time, his portrail of a veteran living in a community of gangs and people who no longer appreciate their neighbourhoods is priceless. His direction and vision is brilliant and his story so moving this picture is a true gem that desrves to be seen over and over again. If you think twice about seeing this picture then you are missing out on a great movie More
Saw it today, here`s my review:
tp://www.imdb.com/title/tt1205489/]Gran TorinoNot a lot of directors release 2 fims within 6 months of each other, and if they do then not often are they as great as the films that the 79 year old living legend Clint Eastwood gives us. Did we got Changeling a few months back, now we get his next gem: Gran Torino.
The story centers around the retired Walt Kowalski (played by Eastwood himself), a bittered man who`s scarred by everything he had witnessed i More
the man is a legend.if i'm still working at 78(!!!) then something isn't right. Heck, if i'm still alive at 78
i'll be suprised.THE GOOD,THE BAD AND THE UGLY.....one of the best films of all time. why even PINK CADILLAC was ok More
This is NOT a vigilante movie, as some people keep claiming on here. It has Eastwood's usual theme of redemption running thoughout, and his views on modern, and the very evil society we currently live in. Hits the nail on the head about todays world though. Ignorant, arrogant,, and lawless. Four stars from myself, would probably have been five had the central performance from the young actor playing tao (?) not been so weak. More
was really not impressed by this movie. i saw the trailer, it looked ok, but the acting is poor (even on clints part-- only so much grunting i can take before it irritates) very shoddy, obvious, and uninspired script. i was unimpressed, but still go urself and make up ur own mind, no doubt ill get back lash for sayin this, but he has truely lost his touch More
This film is really about self reflection and how an older man can still make a vital and important influence on people he may not under 'normal' cicumstances have any interaction. The story does not lean entirely upon Clint, and the ensemble is not what one would expect. In my city there are a lot of Hmong people, and the Hmong boys are terribly bullied at school and on the way home from school. Every school principal has taken steps to protect Hmong children from this abuse in the past 2 to More
