Gran Torino (2008)

Written By Awir Aditya on Monday, August 24, 2009 | 3:46 AM

Genre: Drama/Crime

Starring: Clint Eastwood, Cristopher Carley, Bee Vang, Ahney Har

The movie would have been an utterly hopeless waste of time and money, if it hadn't been for just one thing. Clint Eastwood. The old man has done a brilliant piece of work and has shown once more, that he is the best Hollywood man this world has ever seen. Korean war veteran and grumpy old Polish man, Walt Kowalski (Eastwood) hates almost everything around him. Society, neighbours, Father Janovich (Carley) at church, his own sons, and everyone hates him back with equal passion. The only thing that everyone does like about him is his property, assets and his 1972 Ford Gran Torino in impeccable condition. He cant stand the sight of his Hmong neighbours and when Thao (Vang) influenced by his gangster cousins tries to steal his Gran Torino, Walt decides to instill some sense and responsibility into him to make him a better person. He gets friendly with Thao and his sister Sue (Har) and as time goes, becomes more and more involved with their daily lives. At first glance, the movie seems unexciting, but like I said, Mr. Eastwood makes sure that is not the case. He and his stunning beauty on wheels steal the show throughout, and look like perfect fits for each other. At 78, the old man of Hollywood conjures another miracle.

Rating: 8.3/10
