If this does turn out to be Eastwood's last acting role then it's a worthy swansong for the screen legend. I've just returned from the cinema where the audience didn't murmur for the surprise climax.

The film's still quite new and doing good business at the cinema so I don't want to give away anything for those of you yet to see the movie and I won't go into any major detail.

The films is coated with a thick vein of good humor which makes some of the darker sections that much more palatable but what the audience are really here for is to see Clint kick arse, which he does. But this is far from a mindless action flick and I must admit to having a lump in my throat at the end.

Excellence from a true Hollywood legend.

An absolutely wonderful movie.

Okay, I have to see this movie. Everyone is telling me this is such a great flick. I was at a work training the other day, and the guy teaching us mentioned Gran Torino as a great movie. Thanks!

It's a true, blue Clint Eastwood movie; just the way I've always liked them. Wonderful movie.

Was a bit sceptical after the rave reviews. However, I finally got round to watching it and it's by far the best film I've seen in a long while. It made me remember why my friends on Friends Reunited asked, after 25 years, if I was still a mad fan of Clint Eastwood.
