      Gran Torino might not be the movie to watch if you love action or special effects or are looking for a comedy. But if you like watching good acting and well written story line this is a movie for you.

      Clint Eastwood is basically in every scene on this movie and he has not lost his touch, he plays a grumpy old man Walt Kowalski who has good values and big heart but does not want to appear as a softie and wants to keep his privacy.


      the beginning of the movie there is a funeral for Walt’s wife and you get to see his spoiled son who is nothing like his father and their relationship is not close to say the least. Walt lives next to Hmong immigrants and gets to see how his neighbor is pressured to join the gang like his cousins.

      Bee Vang plays a good role as Thao Vang Lor opposite of Clint Eastwood on his first major movie role and Ahney Lor is another newcomer playing Sue Lor,

      • Thao’s sister who wants him to stay in clear path.

        Lor family has good heart and they will insist that Thao will apologise and pay back after attempting to steal Walt Kowalski’s prized possession, his Gran Torino car while being pressured by the gang.

        Grumpling but finally agreeing Walt will show Thao how to clean and fix houses next to theirs and these two slowly become unlikely friends.

        Other major role in a movie belongs to Christopher Carley who plays Father Janovich. He promised Walt’s wife to get confession

        from him but Walt is not the confessing type. Father Janovich keeps checking on him and when thinks get rough in the neighborhood church wants to be involved.

        There is a lesson to learn from this movie, it shows that just because you might come from different culture or look different it does not automatically mean that you are a bad person. We should always look deeper than skin color while judging other people.

        I would not recommend this movie to younger kids but everyone 14 and older should see it!
