Gran Torino

Critics Consensus

Though a minor entry in Eastwood's body of work, Gran Torino is nevertheless a humorous, touching, and intriguing old-school parable.

Retired auto worker and Korean War vet Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) fills emptiness in his life with beer and home repair, despising the many Asian, Latino and black families in his neighborhood. Walt becomes a reluctant hero when he stands up to the gangbangers who tried to force an Asian teen to steal Walt's treasured car. An unlikely friendship develops between Walt and the teen, as he learns he has more in common with his neighbors than he thought.

Audience Reviews for Gran Torino

  • Mar 11, 2016
    Gran Torino is a brilliant movie from start to finish, I can't believe I waited so long to watch it, It's completely different to what I expected, Two thirds of the film had a very light tone at times and can be humorous too, Clint Eastwood proves he can still be a bad ass and take no Shit from anyone despite his age, The final third of the film turned the tone more serious and was very gripping, The ending was very unexpected and shockingly brilliant, Very well acted by everyone, Hardly any action but it never needed it, It's an amazing film that most will love and feel moved by too.

    It may not be as groundbreaking as Clint Eastwood's other works both as director and actor, but Gran Torino remains to be a film truly worth-seeing.

    This ignorant, ever-so-bitter movie intends to give the impression that it is a tiny raft of integrity floating on the Dead Sea while the rest of American society, reveling in the lifeless water, looks at it with contempt. This vision along with the consistently wooden delivery of the equally stiff dialogue makes for a sad, cringe-worthy experience. The core story had potential, but the execution just made this seem like a deranged and jaded lecture from a soured heart who wants about 15 cartoonishly wretched villains too many.
