Out of all his movies I think this is the best by far. In Clint's old age he still kicks ass. Among many things it shows how cold family can be and how we can find family in strangers, willing to lay his own life down for people he hated.

Watch as Clint Eastwood tries to spit out as many racial slurs as possible in a 2-hour time-span. Pretty good though. I must-see only to see that Eastwood still had it at such an old age.

"Gran Torino" by Yojimbo

Misanthropic Korean war veteran Clint Eastwood is dismayed when a Hmong family move in next door but he learns to respect them when they welcome him into their home after seeing off a local gang who threatened their socially dysfunctional son. Touted as Clint's farewell performance, this film can best be described as "Grumpy Old Harry". Unforgiven was the resurrection and deconstruction of an aged Man With No Name, and Walt Kowalski is the same for Harry Callahan and so is a fitting swan song for Eastwood's career. It's format is the extremely formulaic racist-changes-his-ways-when-he-actually-gets-to-spend-time-with-the-object-of-his-derision that will be familiar to anyone who's ever endured an afternoon TV movie, but it is of course Eastwood who raises it above the mundane. His dialogu...

Get off my lawn!

As he approaches his 80th birthday, film legend Clint Eastwood shows no sign of slowing up, seemingly concentrating on his directorial duties these days, Clint appeared as an actor in only four films in the Noughties ending the decade with one of his finest performances ever.
Playing a cantankerous grizzled veteran of the Korean War, Eastwood is simply magnificent in a tale, which explores racism, old age and redemption.
Gran Torino is a suspenseful and gripping drama tightly plotted and compactly directed by the man himself, more intimate than most of Eastwoods later films, Gran Torino plays like a "Harry Callahan" in retirement kind of movie yet ends as an enthralling character study of a man forced to confront his demons and make peace with himself.

Eastwood Makes My Day

No one plays a mean, old cuss quite like Clint Eastwood. As a Korean War vet who just lost his wife, and a disdain for just about everything and everyone around him, Walt Kowalski is that old man in every neighborhood who tells kids to get off his yard... only he can back it up with iron instead of just words.

Better yet, he's also an unabashed racist - which is a problem when the rest of your neighborhood happens to be populated by Hmong. Despite his extra-tough exterior, Walt isn't a monster, he isn't evil - he may be a bit pessimistic, but given the circumstances that's understandable.

Ignoring his pleas to be left alone, his Hmong neighbors treat him kind of like a local hero when he scares off the local gang. His even takes his next-door neighbor, Thao under his wing. He still ...
