    There was a impeccable/five star film somewhere in and amongst this, I hope there is a remake in a few decades time so it can reach it's potential - without awkward line readings and the tired white saviour narrative.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I found a couple things to like in Gran Torino, one of which was the re-working of conventions of the Western into an contemporary urban setting and their inherent relationship to Eastwood’s persona, but so much of the film seemed needlessly cliched, underdeveloped, and two-dimensional and while I can see why this might perhaps be intentional, I don’t think that the film sufficiently expounds on this trait or delivers enough interesting or original material to deserve it. The deconstruction of…

    Solid movie. It definitely succeeds in creating a story that sucks you in. My only complaint is that Eastwood's character is a tad cartoon-ish as he grumbles his way throughout most of the movie. His character also doesn't try and hide the fact that his constant narration of everything he does is just a thin veil for explaining to the audience how he is feeling as if the audience couldn't figure it out themselves

    While at times this movie seems to serve certain cliches and stereotypes and contains some underdeveloped characters, Clint Eastwood still delivers literally and figuratively speaking an (emotionally) moving picture, due to both his on - and offscreen work. Not only is Eastwood's acting as the main protagonist solid as a rock throughout the entire movie, he even goes beyond that by showing great abilities as a director and pairing the well adaptated story with a precisely executed imagery. Because of Eastwood's sheer omnipresence, the viewer might get the impression that he has not quite vanished yet until the credits have finished rolling...

    A decent script is completely elevated by Eastwood's direction and especially his performance. He gives this film its power and its heart.

    8/10. Tale of old man vs new world. Been done to death, but Eastwood captures bitter old man very well and his directing makes it a marvel to behold. Just wish the side characters were as good an actor as Eastwood was.
