About this movie

Academy Award-winner Clint Eastwood ("Million Dollar Baby," "Mystic River") directs and stars as disgruntled Korean War veteran Walt, who sets out to reform his neighbor, a young Hmong teenager, who tried to steal Kowalski's prized possession: his 1972 Gran Torino. The two learn to grow beyond their own prejudices and struggles by fighting together to change the harsh realities of racial gang violence in their neighborhood.

Memento Mori

Awful. His character, much like the actor, is racist as hell in scene after scene; to endure watching it with a friend, I had to make it a drinking game. Every time he says or does something racist, take a drink. Halfway through the movie, you care less and less how terrible it is, but that's just the alcohol talking. Steer clear unless you enjoy seeing a washed up racist decline even further.

This movie will have it's viewers crying out "God Bless America." After you wipe your tears of America pride you will be blow away by Eastwood's badass ex- military lifestyle trapped in a 70 year old man's body.

Wish my Dad (Korea and Vietnam Marine vet, Purple Heart) and Mom could have seen it. May be Clint's masterpiece. When it kicks in you'll be glued to your chair, and people from all backgrounds will appreciate the movie's realism and message that there are really only two kinds of people when you look past race or creed or looks or whatever: the good and the bad.
