Re: So i just saw Gran Torino....
I just got around to seeing this film. I did not pay much attention to the feedback it received prior to my viewing, but I thought I'd heard some positive things. I'd never heard anything about the acting though, so that really took me off guard throughout (alongside some of the screenwriting). The overall essence of the flick was alright (in terms of what happens) but it was tough to look past the cheesiness of it all.
It was cool to see a bit of Detroit making an appearance though. I assumed it was meant to have taken place in the city, but the generic police cars makes me assume it was supposed to just be a random nameless town.
