    Gran Torino

    I saw the movie last night and it actually had a lot of humour in it unlike lots of other clint movies.The end was a total shock but overall the movie was very good

    Well, I was actually going to post about this last night. I wanted some reviews on it. I want to see it. So you give it two thumbs up then? Or do I just wait for it to come out in the rentals? Must see or see it later?

    The wife and I saw it last night also. I feel that there are very few movies made nowadays that are worth the $10 () ticket price, but this was definitely one of them.

    I was also surprised at the numerous laugh out loud scenes, not a usual Clint flick.

    Don't read any reviews, just go see it.

    Wife and I just got back from it and it's easily one of the best movies we've both seen in a long time. Just a great story and great characters.

    Thank you. There are not many movies that even demand my attention, but I feel this is one of them.

    I haven't seen the movie yet, but that was the very first car that I bought when I was 16. What color is his? I can't tell in the commercial, mine was brown.

    I havent gone to see it yet, but my boss said it was a great movie. I pretty much hate most movies, but this sounds like on of the few good ones worth watching... and I don't mind paying a little to Clint.

    I would have never thought I would laugh so hard. It seemed like everything about this movies was going to be a very serious from the previews.

    Loved it! went to matinee and it was packed with the over 50 crowd, sons went with me more of an obligation, because I wanted to see it and they really liked it too. My son said "It wasn't action packed like their movies, but it sure wasn't boring" This one I will actually buy. Clint played a great role and funny too.
