Gran Torino - review

It’s fantastic to see Eastwood playing the type of role that made him one of my all time favorite actors. The man is truly talented, no one can argue with that. And at the tender young age of 78, I will admit that Eastwood can still be an intimidating presence on the big screen. I’m not ashamed to admit that if I ever saw a man like Walt Kowalski (Eastwood’s character in the film) in a dark alley, I’d be pretty nervous. That is what is truly special about this film, the fine acting throughout. It would’ve been easy to assume that at Eastwood’s age, he could no longer strike fear in the hearts of moviegoers. No longer can he intimidate people, and make them feel like he is a man you don’t want to cross. But if you assume that, you are dead wrong.
