Gran Torino(2008)


At the age of 78, I don’t think anyone else can pull it off like Clint Eastwood does.Still heroic and still as menacing as when he was young.His deathly stare means business.And yeah directed by the legend himself,this one adds another feather to his hat.

Walt Kowalski(Clint Eastwood) is this bad-ass aged man, you wouldn’t want to fuck with.His wife is dead and he is still living in a neighborhood dominated by the Hmong people.His two sons hate him for the tough old bastard he is and he wants them to stay the fuck out of his life.He live by his rules.He really love his old sexy Gran Torino.He never takes it out for a ride, but everyday shines it up.And as the film progresses he develops a good relationship with his neighbors, who are Hmong and soon find it out that they are more likable than his own rotten family.

The best thing about the movie is it’s extremely cool dialogues mouthed by Clint Eastwood.They may be foul and racist, but its music to ears, when he says that.Also also about the climax, I never saw it coming.It’s not just another run-of-the-mill and cliched ending.Its totally justified and turns it into an exceptional film.

This movie could have gone terribly wrong if it had fallen into the wrong hands.But Clint made it into an exceptional film.A film that is funny, emotional and touching.

Do watch this one.

My Rating:8.5/10
