- Gran Torino not very good.
I thought it was one of the best films of 2008 actually. Apart from the dodgy singing at the end.
There are a few very hollywood-esque moments in it where it’s kinda explained to the audience what exactly is going on, despite it being obvious to anyone with an IQ over 90, but if you can look past those it’s a great film.
“Yeah, I blow a hole in your face, and then I go in the house, and I sleep like a baby.”

Just watched Gran Torino for the first time tonight. I thought it might be an insight into racism in America. It dealt with race issues in a very clunky way. Not realistic at all. Some shocking acting.
Anyone else agree.
No I don’t ! Don’t give up your day job in pursuit of becoming a film critic 😯

A man sacrifices his life for boy he has known for a matter of weeks who comes from a race he has hated for 60 years. If you think that is in any way shape or form believable, Hollywood here we come!!Ramsey NeilMember
OMG what’s wrong with you people it was an absolute stinker , I can’t believe anybody thought it was any good . Poor story , not very well acted , very unlikely storyline . Totally with the OP here although I would never watch a Clint film and expect to gain an insight into real issues.Posted 4 years agoalpinMember
Re. This is England….
Guy I used to work with an old skin head…. Even had “skins” tattooed on his forehead (although the first S was written backwards as he had done it in the mirror whilst in Borstal, but that’s another story). I said that perhaps he should see it. Spoke to him about it next time I saw him, asked him what he thought: “yeah good… Well good, especially the bit where he kicked the black guy’s head in”…….
