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.

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

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

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

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.
