on the weekend i went to see Grand Torino to beat the 40 degree heat. I had heard mixed reviews on the movie but thought it was worth a look, and im happy i did.
Clint Eastwood plays a stubborn old war veteran who’s suburb has slowly become home to a mixture of asian, mexican and black americas (and more than one gang).
After one of the boys is manipulated by the gang into trying to steal clint car – the Grand Torino – clint is persuaded to takes the boy under his wing to groom him to be a real man by his charming older sister. When the sister is raped by a gang, clint seeks revenge in a rather brutal ending.
Think Grumpy old men meets Boys in the Hood.
