Clint Eastwood directs and stars in this movie. He plays Walt Kowalski who is a mean, bigoted, old Korean War veteran who lives in Highland Park with a mint-condition 1972 Gran Torino in his garage.

Walt is a retired autoworker and widow who spends his time at home mowing his lawn and tinkering around the house. Foreign immigrants move in next door with a teenage son, Thao, (Bee Vang) who is shy and barely speaks to anyone. There is a gang who wants to recruit him. As an initiation, they boy tries to steal the Gran Torino.

He gets caught by Walt and explains it was just a stunt. As days go by, Walt realizes he's a nice kid and they become best of friends. Walt hires him to do chores around his house.

When the boy gets hassled by the gang on a streetcorner, "Dirty Harry" comes into play and saves him. Kowalski searchs the infested neighborhoods trying to locate the gangmembers to get revenge.

The film is 116 minutes long and includes some violence.

I would recommend this movie since #1 its filmed in Michigan and its a good story.

Overall Rating: B+
