    You may be talking about two different films here tho, as the one I watched was called 'GRAN Torino'

    No but on a serious note, I thought the film was excellent, very good story, car looked good and for a 79 year old dude, he did well....

    I thought it was brilliant!
    So politically incorrect...very funny at times too.
    Well worth a viewing.

    Must agree, very good film. Clint acted and directed, that's great on its own merit!

    I do like Clint, watched where eagles dare today.... classic.

    Its very un-pc and that is very refreshing, some people get so upset over name calling these days its tragic. A rose by any other name is still as sweet.

    Hopefully I'll get there this weekend coming. To prepare I'm re watching all the old Eastwood films started with Diry Harry and Magnum Force. The Enforcer next.

    Clint is probably the last of the proper great actors who can get away with non-pc stuff, he was great back when people were tougher, and a bit of name calling didn't make people cry or claim compensation for hurt feelings.

    Where have those days gone eh?
