Gran Torino Review

| |

Like many Eastwood movies, the screenplay is poignant, beautiful, and full of strong character development. The idea of an old racist truly didn't click for me at first, but as the movie continued on, you learned to laugh at crusty old Kowalski's comments and appreciate the bonds that he forms with the Hmong immigrants that live next door. It's a simple premise, but is executed with Eastwood's fine hand for developing believable films despite a wishy-washy supporting cast. Some may even call up similarities between the contrasting cultures as "just another Karate Kid" movie. Nonetheless, I still found it to be far more enjoyable than 90% of the other Hollywood junk out there and a worthy addition to Eastwood's arsenal. 8.3/10.
