What is the movie Gran Torino about?
Gran Torino is a movie about a man named Walt Kowalski who is a Korean War veteran who has just lost his wife. His whole world is changed, as well as his neighborhood. His all-white community is now mostly Southeast Asian and he doesn't get along with his sons and grandchildren. However, he loves his 1927 Gran Torino more than anything else. Thao Hmong, a teenager who lives next door, gets challenged by a group of local gang members to steal the car. He almost gets killed when Walt catches him in the act. Walt soon realizes that he has more in common with his neighbors than with his own family. Gradually, he takes Thao under his wing teaching him about life and helping him in getting a job. Gang members attack Thao's sister and shoot up his house, and Walt figures that the time for action is now. Clint Eastwood did an amazing job at portraying Walt Kowalski, it is obvious that he enjoyed this role and it suits him very well. Clint Eastwood manages to portray many emotions and he does it naturally without making it look like he is overacting. Gran Torino has drama, action and comedy, and a character to whom many can relate to. It is a well made movie which is definitely worth seeing.

Hi everyone, today i would like to share with my impressions about this movie. This movie is the type of movies that needs to be watched by the entire family, but no matter this fact, due to the bad teasers this movie might look like a boring one. I would like to say it is not true. And i am sure that people who watched it no matter what can surely agree with me. In this movie there are no sexual scenes, there is no cheap pornography, there is cursing and a bit of violence, a lot of morality, but that’ it, as the end of the movie was not expected one, only for this end of the movie it is worth watching it.
This movie is about a strong person, about a patriot. A person who lived his life not in vain he got the needed wisdom! That is why it is worth watching this movie, as there are a lot of interesting things you can learn from this great person! And it is possible to change your life completely anytime, and it is easier to do that while changing the attitude toward life and certain people. It is a equally good movie for watching it alone and being surrounded with the family.

This movie is a story of life of a rude but deep down in his soul kind and just man Walter Kowalski who was the veteran of the Korean war who retired, and after the retirement started leading a simple and quiet life in a cozy house with his favorite dog Daisy, and the dear to his heart Gran Torino car.
On communication with people he doesn’t want neither to start nor to respond, and his own children need him only for the legacy. But Walter’s life changes very suddenly in the moment when Asian immigrants (he hated Asian people since the war times) mover to the neighbor house, and he meets their child Tao. This movie brings a lot of important subjects to think of! And a lot of life’s important themes, the correlation between relatives, racism, honesty and the sense of life.
Clint Eastwood who performed Walter’s role is not only a great actor, but is also a great movie producer as he created an amazing movie, in which he put all of his soul and feelings! I recommend this movie to everyone!

It is a wonderful plot, and a wonderful performance by Clint Eastwood, and as a result it is a great movie. It is a movie about hero who was forgotten even by his children and grandchildren. I mean forgotten not in the physical way (as they visit him from time to time) but in the spiritual way. The main hero is a grandfather who is about seventy years old and who hates every person who is Asian since the times of war in Korea, and also he didn’t really like black people. Who could have thought that this old man no matter his decent age is able to do so many things, and his main accomplishment was making a real man the representative of the Asian people. Of course i would say that the main character has done also by the end of the movie, but i think it will be much better if you will see it with your own eyes. I recommend watching this movie till the end, i am sure you will not be disappointed by it. So all i can add is enjoy the wonderful movie.

Gran Torino is a smorgasbord of Eastwood's skills as filmmaker -- the good, the bad, and the ugly -- and how well you digest it will depend on your appetite.
