Gran Torino by Clint Eastwood

I seldom watch a movie with actors who belong to the golden generation. No offense but, I said SELDOM. On the other hand, Clint Eastwood is a veteran actor and once again proven his worth as an award winning Actor and an excellent Director.

This movie is simple yet a compelling. Walt Kowalski(Clint Eastwood) is a Korean War Veteran who lives in a Korean neighborhood. His character in the movie is simply the grumpy old man. Nobody likes him in his neighborhood, not even his own family. Thao(Bee Vang) is his teenager neighbor who was encouraged to steal his mint condition '72 Ford Torino. He and his sister Sue (Anney Her), soon become a part of his life. I like the humor in the movie such as he called Thao as TOAD and YUM-YUM to the girl who likes Thao.

Well, if you watch Clint Eastwood movies, you will never get disappointed with this one. If you are not a fan of him, I encourage you to watch it because it is different and you will love it. I laugh the whole time of the movie. I call it CLEVER. And I also shed shallow tears at the end of the movie.

My rate: Four stars
