Clint Eastwood spielt die Rolle als rassistischer, dauernörgelnder Misanthrop sehr gut. Auch die Wandlung ist glaubhaft dargestellt und das Ende haut ordentlich rein. Ruhiger, aber richtig guter Film.
really well done
Everyone is fighting their own war. Walt Kowalski did that too.
Serious and remarkable film about an old man who fights for his neighborhood. The end came too suddenly.
Love the lines at the barbershop:
Barber Martin There. You finally look like a human being again. You shouldn't wait so long between hair cuts, you cheap son of a bitch.
Walt Kowalski Yeah. I'm surprised you're still around. I was always hoping you'd die off and they got someone in here that knew what the hell they were doing. Instead, you're just hanging around like the doo-wop dago you are.
Clint Eastwood is the definitive Grumpy Old Man in his film about people putting aside differences in order to help eachother.
Despite an interesting premise and some amusing exchanges, Gran Torino is dragged down by its two major weaknesses.
The poor performances by an inexperienced supporting cast and the redemption narrative at play which moves along all too easily.
Those things could almost be overlooked if it wasn't for the final act which dissolves into ludicrously delivered dialogue and a…
Strong, powerful story with superb acting and direction.
A superbly crafted story of a troubled suburban old man's redemption
Not sure why a Clint Eastwood decided to star and direct in a film surrounded by terrible actors/actresses....
Overstuffed with bland moralizing and quick leaps; nonetheless, a worthwhile film. It's overblown but so much so that it's sort of adorable. And Clint Eastwood is involved, so if nothing else it's a delightful feast in sure-footed acting.
A surprisingly good and touching film starring and directed by the one and only Clint Eastwood as a racist, cynical, grizzled curmudgeon who growls more than he talks and slams down anyone who gets in his way without the slightest bit of remorse, that is until he slowly befriends his Hmong neighbors and gradually changes his attitude. This is an incredible role for Eastwood though it's as if the screenwriter spent all his time and energy making some sweet and…
No more words are needed.
I have a hard time making out words for this one. I suppose I have too much praise for Gran Torino.
Clint Eastwood's film comments on racism in a way that doesn't require elaborate sets or big actors -- only authenticity.
It's real, and not in a forgiving way.
The viewer enters the film through Eastwood's character's perception and adopts his emotions throughout the course of the story.
You share the trust he gains with the boy who tried to…
Terrific movie from one of my biggest passions. How can you dislike Clint Eastwood?!
Probably, the biggest compliment I can make to Gran Torino, is salute its Bravery: Brave for not sticking to the old cliché, American character that saves the day (and is always right on its beliefs), and also brave because it deals with a very complicate theme in the USA (racism and xenophobia).
Walt Kowalsk, the main character, changes throughout the movie are tremendous. He starts from being almost a racist redneck to transforming himself into someone who learns about other cultures and starts to accept them.
Maybe, Clint Eastwood's finest...*
