    How on earth did we all warm to this story of a belligerent, racist war veteran back in 2008 (Me Included)? Granted Eastwood is fantastic here but the constant use of "gooks" and "zipperheads" starts to wear thin after a while.

    The whole old-school alpha male thing teaching the young Hmong boy to be a man just felt obvious this time around, and Walt's sacrifice to release Thao from the gang is a rather simplistic, cowboy solution to a wider…

    Love this movie , very powerful story that always has me in tears at the end. The messages of racial prejudice and the impact of war are handled well and with some wit. This could have easily been tweaked a little bit and been the last dirty harry movie. Just replace the korean war with harry's time on the force, Would have been fitting for Callahan to bow out the way walt did as well. Still amazing film

    This would be an automatic five star film if Clint ever produced a directors cut that's just two solid hours of close ups of his character grunting and looking disapprovingly at things.

    Clint Eastwood gives a brave, risky, riveting and incredibly powerful performance. Showing after all these years that he can still deliver an amazing portrayal giving his best screen performance ever. Eastwood raises his game to a whole new level. It's an explosive tour de force. A performance that stands with some of his best work since Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven and Dirty Harry. It's a truly superb piece of work for him as a performer and artist. A masterpiece, a…

    Detroit is not the same anymore. The neighborhoods that used to belong to the elite white people are now overwhelmed by immigrants. Aggressive gangs of Latinos and Asians fight it out. It’s not that strange that Walt Kowalski, played by Clint Eastwood, is constantly complaining and growling. The Korean War veteran sees his neighborhood aggravate every day. Since his wife’s death, there isn’t any joy in his life. His two sons want him in an elderly home, but Walt is…

    Awesome! Probably the closest thing I've seen to a perfect movie as far as story and character arcs go. Would watch again!

    Clint Eastwood's directing career post-Unforgiven has been a weird one, capable of turning out major works like Mystic River and Million Dollar Baby to quota-filling busywork like Space Cowboys or Blood Work. Too often he seemed to save his worst work for stuff he was acting in, a line of clunkers basically undoing all his hard work to gain acting credibility in the early nineties.

    Gran Torino saw a major return to form as a lead actor and director, a…

    Gran Torino is a predictable film covering lots of themes that features a great performance by Eastwood, but the drama and the racial related problems in the film are weak.
