I absolutely adore the way Clint Eastwood growls out his performance in Gran Torino. Nobody does grizzly, chewed up and bitter, better then Eastwood.
This is my second time of watching Gran Torino and it wasn't as shocking as the first time…
"I'm proud to be able to call you my friend."
One of Eastwood's masterpieces: Unforgiven isn't Eastwood's last western, this is. Street gangs replace warring factions of a town, the youngest is pulled in-between, a priest mediates all conflict. And Eastwood himself is almost Fordian. He's a good-bad man, he rejects all emotion, he accepts his killer past....and one day, "like Paul on the road to Damascus," he changes. Through this Eastwood achieves his most sustained masterclass in economy. We're only given tiny glimpses into Walt's past: the silver star, lines like "I killed a lot of men," or "what haunts a man isn't what he's told to do, it's what he does without being asked" (something like that, I'll…
Sometimes I wonder whether Eastwood is such an awesome actor because he gets to play himself in the movies. Here he plays a grouchy badass with a soft spot for being awesome.
I adored this movie; the breakout supporting actors are phenomenal and the pacing is perfect. It feels real despite the heroism. I also laughed. Win.
Letters to the Director #15- Gran Torino
To Mr. Clint Eastwood,
You're a freakin genius!
Making a movie brilliantly addressing the generational gap between old and young alongside the ever-growing race problem in the States, while also investigating the importance of life and death and the power of friendship. Everything about this film is done with grace, honesty, and care. You could care less if the harsh language present will offend anybody; you just want to present your views on how this problem abounds in society and your steps in how to fix them, and your film, again, addresses such problems very well.
The bond between your old grumpy racist character and the young Asian neighbor has got to be…
While it didn't get the Oscar buzz like the string of films before it Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, and Letters From Iwo Jima Gran Torino is a damn good film in my opinion.
I don't know if anybody does grumpy old man better than Clint Eastwood so casting himself in the lead is perfect here. There's just something about his facial expressions, and the way he talks that I find absolutely hilarious in this film although I'm not sure if it was intentionally funny. It kind of reminds me of Sling Blade in that way were while unintentionally funny (maybe not) it's also very touching.
Overall I highly recommend this film, I laughed, I teared up a little, and I generally felt good about the experience.

After watching the trailer, I figured this would be another simple Dirty Harry flick. I learned a long time ago to not make assumptions based on a trailer. Now the ratings on various sites were all over the place and yet most agreed that Clint Eastwood was fantastic. Many were critical of the Hmong actors and their abilities. I could see that as well, but I think their lack of experience made more sense and added another layer to the characters. Others complain about the inaccuracies when it come to the portrayal of the Hmong people. It may be incorrect, but most won't even notice. You…
You can see where it's going super early on, but otherwise a really enjoyable film
A classic. Great film. Eastwood gives a very memorable performance. An emotional story.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
My favorite part is when they read his testament and his niece dies inside
Clint Eastwood made a film to show how handsome he is. Script and actors were very phony.
Zuhause am Laptop. Clint Eastwood als alter Grantler, der sich nach anfänglicher Skepsis mit seinen asiatischen Nachbarn anfreundet. Dirty Harry in Pension, zuviel Pathos und martialisches Getue, ebendieses will der Film ja eigentlich ankreiden.
Clint Eastwood can't act and the film attempts to manipulate and pull at your heartstrings in such a predictable sense that you will know the ending 15 minutes into the film. So by-the-books it hurts.
Eastwood is funny but cartoonish, snarling and scowling all the time, but the problem with this film is that it clearly doesn't know if it is supposed to be taken serious or not - and what makes it all worse is certainly the awful acting from the entire cast and the lame ending.
