Default So i just saw Gran Torino....

Awesome movie! If you have not seen it yet then i reccomend going out and renting or buying it or if you must downloading it or watching it online.

I give it a 10/10 .. Gran Torino was probably the best movie ive seen in a while. Its got a couple of cheesy moments in it. But other than that, its amazing.

Its deffinatly on my top 5 movies list now.

It's a good movie....

I've read many negative reviews... and they are all wrong.

Gran Torino is greatness. (a few bad acting scenes by the Koreans, but it's all good).

It's terribly acted and probably not likely. The whole Holocaust shooting thing is probably more likely to happen than what Clint's character does in this movie. It's a load of bullshyt. Moreover, it's just and old sentimental Eastwood chewing up scenes.

Great movie, I saw it on the Net during the weekend it came out. 9/10. Best scene was what Clint Eastwood beat that dude up. You hear?


But the actors outside of Clint Eastwood sucked.

horrible acting by anyone not named clint. otherwise a pretty decent movie. not even close to 10/10. youre probably one of those people that rated hangover a 9.5 on imdb.

Okay movie, but I can't get over the hideous "Toad" trapped in basement scene.

Most surely a great film.. and suprisingly held more humor and touching scenes than I expected.

I actually just watched this for the first time last night, weird.

I thought it was a very good movie. The asians were pretty horrible actors, and the toad in the basement scene was almost unbearable, but Clint was amazing, and there were a lot of funny scenes.

Also didn't see the ending coming.

I'd give it a 7.5/10

Agreed. Not to be racist, but all of the oriental actors in this film were horrible. And the dialogue was awful. 7/10 for me, and that's coming from a huge Clint fan.
