Gran Torino

"Crusty, inflexible Korean War veteran Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) must confront his Hmong immigrant neighbors – and his own long-held prejudices – when the family's teen son, Thao, tries to steal Walt's beloved 1972 Gran Torino. Walt soon assumes the unlikely role of guardian angel to young Tao and his sister, who are vulnerable to disturbing gang influences in this intimate drama from 78-year-old director Eastwood" courtesy of netflix

I went to see this movie with my Dad and his only reason for wanting to see it was Clint Eastwood "Clint Eastwood doesn't do bad movies" even on the way driving to the movie we both realized we had no idea what the movie was about. i was a little hesitant i thought it might be to old school western style but it was brilliantly amazing. it all feels very real and is very intriguing and interesting. I do have to say that i thought the two main Asian actors (the brother and sister) weren't very good actors but it doesn't hurt the movie at all, the storyline is amazing and Walt is the perfect character; he is basically Greg House (from the TV show House) he is racist, rude and doesn't care what he says. its amazing and you will love it.
