The wife of Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood), a Korean war veteran, has just died. At the funeral, he bristles at Father Janovichs (Christopher Carley) shallow eulogy. He has no patience for his two sons and grandchildren, who he sees as spoiled.

Walt lives in a changing Detroit neighborhood, one that is dominated by immigrants. He calls his Hmong neighbors "barbarians." A Hmong street gang peer-pressures Walt's neighbor, Thao Vang Lor (Bee Vang), to steal his prized 1972 Gran Torino car, but Walt interrupts the robbery and Thao runs away.

This incident leads to Thao working for Walt to make amends and Walt teaching him how to be a man. Walt also comes to be friends with his Hmong neighbors and to appreciate their culture. Eventually, because the Hmong gang keeps pressuring Thao to join them, the Hmong gang and Walt have several bloody conflicts -- leading to a final showdown between them and him. Walt knowingly allows himself to be murdered, which results in the arrest of the entire gang. With the gang off the streets, Thao finally has a chance to grow up a decent man. In his will, Walt leaves his Gran Torino not to his spoiled ungrateful granddaughter, but to Thao.

I want to see it. He's so great and it's awesome that he's still doing so well at his age. That said, every time he talks I get the feeling he might crap his pants at any moment. If he does this in this movie, please don't tell me. I want to be surprised.

Yeah, this is something that actually caught my interest.

It looks like Clint Eastwood doing what he did best, intimidating.

I've never really cared for Clint Eastwood.




My friend has a rip of the movie, and has watched it, and he said he liked it, but, overall, I don't really have much interest.

None of Eastwood's movies have ever REALLY interested me, at least. I respect him as an actor and a filmmaker, but I probably won't see this movie.

Don't worry, you're not missing anything. The movie is awful.

First of all its like a Clint Eastwood parody with Clint stumbling around growling, grunting and hurling racist slurs at the Asian people next door. It's really quite funny. Then as the story unfolds its this boring, predictable story with the kid next door and gangs. It's such an uninteresting and generic situation that it seems like an episode of Law & Order. Then of course Clint changes his racist ways by befriending the kid and then sacrificing himself for him, but you can see it coming from a mile off so you're just about bored to death by the time this happens. The film concludes with this terrible song "Gran Torino" and that really is the nail on the coffin.

It also features some hilariously bad acting by the kid next door.

Excellent film, it engrosses you and the character development was great. Clint is the man. Definitely one of the better movies of the last few years.

It's a great film. And he has some really good lines:

"In Korea we used to stack fucks like you 5feet high, use you for sandbags".

"Get off my lawn"

"You know every once in a while, you come across someone you shouldn't have fucked with. Thats me!"

And Clint's grunting was pretty intense.

i saw it yesterday. definitely not the best movie ever made, but worth the watch. embarrassing for me a white person to hear the fucking moronic wasps in the audience laugh everytime clint eastwood uses a racial slur. yeah, pretty funny when he calls someone a "gook" the first time, the thirtieth time, you're just laughing because of your deep-seeded racism. the exchanges with the barber were good though. the plot was predictable, though not uninspiring. the climax was extremely disappointing. not because it was particularly poor (though it wasn't great), but because it shows dirty harry has finally let his real-life pacifism make him a pussy in the movies. it was kind of hard to get over clint eastwood doing a parody of himself when he was still a tough guy, what with his batman grunting and his angry old man face. half the time i was laughing even though i was supposed to be taking him seriously. however, the atmosphere was a very unique one. it all feels very small scale and intimate and therefore very engrossing. i have to give eastwood lots of credit for that.

overall:

6-7 out of 10

Just saw it an hour ago.

One of my favourite ever movies. Hilarious, and in my opinion, a great climax.
I felt really sad when at the end; the main character developed so much throughout the movie, and to see what happened when it did was saddening.
