Classic Eastwood - Gran Torino review by DB

Spoiler Alert
17/08/2010

This is classic angry man turns good Eastwood. He does it so well and for any Clint fans it's a must. I liked it a lot even though it's predictable in a lot of ways although the ending was unexpected. Clint doesn't pull any punches in this living on the edge man takes law into his own hands movie but it also has a lot of pathos and you empathise with the characters. There's some good moments but it's very much in the Eastwood mould and so it's definitely worth a look.

Stunning - Gran Torino review by Andy

Spoiler Alert
14/10/2010

For most actors/directors, this film would be a career defining moment. For Eastwood though, this is just another magnificent addition to a staggering career. The film is a character piece and Eastwood's Kowalski is worthy of 2 hours of your time. His screen presence is second to none, the simple plot develops at a comfortable pace and the denouement is breathtaking. Eastwood's career has been long and distinguished and yet when it's finally reviewed, gems like this in his later years will go down as genuine highlights.

Cringeingly non-PC - Gran Torino review by JD

Spoiler Alert
01/06/2010

At the time of writing there were 3 other reviews which said what I was going to type. In addition I want to add that Clint's character is similar to his previous roles, and utterly fantastic because of that. The bit I liked in particular is his completely cynical contempt of his children and grandchildren, accurate as it transpires. This film explores racism, bullying and prejudice, gently and neutrally hardly noticed under the macho frontage. Loved it.
