I had the pleasure of seeing the movie ‘Gran Torino’ on Friday evening, starring Clint Eastwood, and I gotta say ‘Clint Eastwood Rocks!’
There is a reason Eastwood is called a movie icon, and tough guy action here – And they are all evident in the movie Gran Torino. It was excellent. Not only did he star in the movie, he directed it as well.
As painful as some of the racial slurs were to hear, I do understand they were needed to understand the man Walt Kowalski, and the growth of his character. As he unwilling, at first, begins to protect the Asian family living next door to him, and then becomes entwined with the family, you can see his character develop and his racial prejudice melt away.
Even if you have never been a fan of Clint Eastwood, go see this movie. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
