I feel that I should let everyone reading this know my natural bias in favor of this movie. I found twenty-eight film from director Clint Eastwood and liked most of them, and loved by a good number of them (my average film 28 is 7.9). However, something felt off about Gran Torino on the basis of the trailer. I read it as Eastwood is trying to be a badass again trying to be dirty Harry again. Gran Torino is not so. Walt Kowalski may have similarities and Dirty Harry, and could possibly be read as offering the largest Harry (stretch), but distinct, memorable character himself, and Id go so far as to say that it is one of the performances of Eastwoods finest and one that gives him a chance to show off her dramatic and comedic chops.Im not going to say that Gran Torino is acting perfect to help young cast. Not. In fact, some are downright bad at times, but the film works in spite of its flaws. This was probably written with Eastwood in mind (I'm not sure about the facts behind-the-scenes about this), and it shows. He caught Kowalski perfectly. The film is surprisingly funny, something not captured well in advertising. They are often quite hilarious (see Kowalski tries to make one of Thao, taught how to speak like people), and Eastwood handles the change in tone perfectly. While the movie takes a dark turn at the end and I was sitting beside my chair in doubt, fully aware of where he was heading, but still mesmerized by Eastwoods direction tour-de-force. This is an artist in his prime as an actor and as director.Whether or Gran Torino will be held as one of the great Eastwoods movie remains to be seen, and the film feels like a good number of areas. Attitude is stronger and not simplistic at all, you could say that Kowalski just another grouchy war vet, but Eastwoods good performance compliments as well as some neat little touches environment (especially at the end), which I will not discuss in detail in order to avoid damaging anything (and is really fun to watch the film happens, Eastwood keeps the film moving large, engaging pace) to prove you wrong. film work yet another level of deconstruction photo Eastwoods. I dont think negative, it only adds to the power of film study.Its intimate behavior than Eastwoods film another movie this year, Changeling, and also to a lesser extent than many of his other films, but it's just as ambitious in many ways. It's not politically correct film about discrimination grouchy old suddenly turns into someone more tolerant world, is a movie about a man who, at the end of his life, is forced to deal with his demons, and on the sunnier the person who finds true friendship, where he at least expected. And Gran Torino I had all the flaws can be forgiven, and was quite happy with the film, which far exceeded my expectations. I have a feeling that Gran Torino, which has already met with very positive reviews (but has been described as a small Eastwood movies, some) will eventually become a very important part of Eastwoods film.
