Gran Torino — An urban tale close to perfection — 9*/10

  • Scenario: There are a few elements that you'll recognize immediately, but mostly, this scenario is full of novelty. More over, the movie isn't about what the synopsis might imply, it's about opening up your horizon, but done in a fairly unconventional way. I just love the end, although no gang would have waited at the house to be picked up. Although it has a violent angry vibe to it, it contains very little actual violence.
  • Dialogs: Priceless. Just perfect. Love the Asian sister's repartee.
  • Characters: You have your basic grumpy old man with a heart of gold. He's really annoying, but not so much as to discourage continued viewing and you really get attached to him. Even though that's a bit predictable, the way it happens is not. 
  • Actors: Solid work on the part of everyone. Cast members include Clint Eastwood and John Carroll Lynch.
  • Photography: Good camera work and sets.
  • Sound: Nice music and score.
  • Special effects: None.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? It's a must see, unless you need glamorous settings.

Another incredible film by Eastwood as a director.
