Summary: Out of all his movies I think this is the best by far. In Clint's old age he still kicks ass. Among many things it shows how cold family can be and how we can find family in strangers, willing to lay his own life down for people he hated.
Summary: There's lot a lot of deviation from the standard coming of age tale laid out here, though the Asian American racism themes are fresh. Clint Eastwood is appropriately gruff, but old Clint Eastwood can play this role in his sleep.
Summary: The Gran Torino is one of the best movies I have ever watched in my life. Clint Eastwood is just awesome. I was absolutely stunned. This movie is for kids, this movie for all. This movie has a great message. Finally, Gran Tornino is a must much movie. Highly recommended!
Summary: The effort by Clint Eastwood in this movie can not be described by words. He not only directed it but also gave an performance that will be remembered forever. For me this was the best action movie of the year (2008). Watching it again in DVD was a treat. Hats off to Clint Eastwood.
