Review: Gran Torino (2008)

Wow, I just do not know what to say about this movie.

Except that it totally ROCKED! I'll admit, the trailer is just awful. So, I was really not expecting a lot from this film. But boy was I entertained. Clint Eastwood seems to be playing a caricature of himself, with the perpetual crease between the eyebrows, and a low raspy grumble for a voice. He may be old, but he kicks ass. As far as actor of the year? I wouldn't go that far. Though this is said to be his final performance as thespian, and I think he deserves respect and recognition.

Recommended? Hell yeah!

Grade: B-
