Gran Torino


Gran Torino has been getting some great reviews, so I checked it out last night. Its a thoughtful movie, great contrast and character development. It had a Karate Kid feel to it, even though it had to do more with Walt mentoring his young neighbor on an emotional level, rather than karate.

There was one major problem- the dialogue is filled with every kind of expletive and racial slur you could ever imagine. For the most part, Clint Eastwood pulls off many of these racial comments in a very comical way as his character is a stubborn, grouchy old man. If you are easily offended by coarse language, avoid it.
