It is familiar, but only to a point. Suddenly, that point is past and much more serious questions come up, questions of responsibility, of vengeance, of the efficacy of blood for blood.
Thank you for your insightful discernment. I've read all the negative reviews on Rottom Tomatoe for Gran Torino. Watching Gran Torino was unbelievable. And I've never seen an audience respond to a movie as they did. We ALL sat stunned, speechless, unable to move at it's conclusion. I'm still shocked, we all sat motionless until near the end of the credit roll, until which time no one left let alone stood or spoke. You put it just right when you say, "suddenly, that point is past and much more serious questions come up..." Thank you for helping to describe what I experienced and for reviving my respect for credible movie critics.

I'm a big Clint Eastwood fan, but he carried this movie. The main supporting asian actors were inexperienced in some scenes and their dialogue was ok at best. The asian jokes get old about half way thru. Again, Clint made this movie, but the supporting asian actors killed it. Overall, its ok at best.
