Film reviewers are lower on the food chain than book reviewers so don’t hold this against me. For $5 I got a small box of popcorn and saw Gran Torino.
The script was adequate. The directing was good. His dog, his barber, and his female counterpart next door kept pace with him. Add his pissy granddaughter to the list. That leaves Clint Eastwood.
I have heard this is his last acting part, so if I was on speaking terms with him I would say good idea. The odds are against you or I living long enough for you to do a better job. My $5 was well spent, and I don’t want to feel cheated next time. Charles Marlin
