Deadspin

This is another Eastwood's deconstruction of his career, and it doesn't give anything else in the movie any room to breathe.

Covers a lot of ground as it rolls: religion, the toll of war, mortality, what it means to be a man.

Twenty minutes in, we know Walt is eventually going to give the car to the kid. The only question is how.

Though the film feels like a requiem, Kowalski's heart is still defiantly beating.

Gran Torino is not Eastwood's best film as director or actor but it perfectly encapsulates his onscreen persona and his brilliant directorial career.

Gran Torino is less a sleek hybrid than a multigenre pileup.

Even this one-trick predictable pony is worth seeing when Eastwood is riding.

After the clumsy beginning, the deft writing and excellent acting has so sunk you into your relationship with Walt and Sue and Thao that by the end, I loved this movie, but it took a while to snag me.

Un film posé et d'une grande intelligence émotionnelle qui va au-delà des barrières des croyances ou des origines pour défendre une tradition tout simplement humaine.

Florida Times-Union

Take it for what it is: An old guy who gives himself one last juicy role as the flawed, haunted anti-hero, an old guy who's done this so often that he isn't above making himself look silly as well as heroic (he even croons the title song over the ending c

If this is the end of the road for the Man With No Name, it's a memorable, winning way for him to go out.

Though Eastwood is not above self-deprecation and, here, downright silliness, Gran Torino is no orangutan movie.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Like a new driver learning to operate a manual transmission, director Eastwood's awkward shifting of tones makes the lurching Gran Torino a frustrating ride.

Clint gets into surly senior power, and while flexing those rejuvenated geriatric muscles, but mostly verbal and otherwise. Though what a tongue lashing, poised to give those Superbad youngsters a run for their money.

Gran Torino is a smorgasbord of Eastwood's skills as filmmaker -- the good, the bad, and the ugly -- and how well you digest it will depend on your appetite.
