This is one movie I actually went into not having any bias beforehand. I had not read any reviews and had no clue what I was about to watch. This is also one movie that should never have been made. The story was only somewhat inspiring. And when Eastwood did try to reel the audience in, Gran Torino was incapable of doing so because of the absolutely atrocious acting by almost the entire cast. Great, or even just believable acting, is what holds a film together.
Eastwood was the only slightly believable main character. The asian "gang" in this film was more comical than threatening. The whole time, I knew I was watching a movie, I was never once drawn into the story because the actors were so unbelievable and untalented. The only people who seemed to know what they were doing were the ones who weren't speaking english. I don't know what Clint was thinking when he put this together but he must have been off his meds or on something else. I'm also wondering why this movie is getting as good reviews as it is.
