Gran Turino - a quick review

Firstly, I can't believe that Clint Eastwood is 69 years of age. Now Gran Turino, it's a mixed cookie of a movie - we've got grumpy old man syndrome, racism, ageism, materialism, war and a wave of different generations colliding onscreen.

Essentially, Clint plays Mr.Walt Kowalski, a tough-nut veteran who gets to grips with an Asia family moving in next door and all the drama that unfolds with it. Clint's performance is a throwback to to the like of his legendary Dirty Harry character & he does a fantastic job both acting & directing the movie. A great story about a great character, definitely one I'll be adding to the DVD collection.
