About the Movie
Academy Award-winner Clint Eastwood ("Million Dollar Baby," "Mystic River") directs and stars as disgruntled Korean War veteran Walt, who sets out to reform his neighbor, a young Hmong teenager, who tried to steal Kowalski's prized possession: his 1972 Gran Torino. The two learn to grow beyond their own prejudices and struggles by fighting together to change the harsh realities of racial gang violence in their neighborhood.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Though the film feels like a requiem, Kowalski's heart is still defiantly beating.
Fresh: If Mt. Rushmore were to make a movie, it would probably look a lot like a Clint Eastwood movie.
Fresh: A brilliant commentary on a lot of earlier Clint Eastwood roles.
Rotten: He never manages, though, to penetrate to his character's much-touted depths, and it's left to young non-professionals Vang and Her to infuse the action with a spry, casual liveliness that offsets the film's rickety set-up and pacing.
Clint Eastwood at his finest
This film truly defines and enriches Clint Eastwood as an actor/legend. Despite the racial slurs and harsh/old-timey language, this film is utterly incredible. It proves that there is good in us all, even those that are lost or confused, and that justice isn't always served cold. Excellent film, Clint Eastwood at his finest, strong recommendation.
