..."Gran Torino" contains within its strangely tight wanderings the utter, dexterous precision of drama-comedy and tragedy-given not to intellect and consideration, but to profound conviction and feeling.

[Its] problems cannot be ignored.

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

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

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.

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
