Disc: 3 1/2 out of 4 stars

Mysteriously snubbed by the Oscar nominating committee, "Gran Torino" is easily one of director Clint Eastwood's most powerful films and is perhaps the great performance Eastwood the actor has ever rendered. Playing racist Korean War veteran and recent widower Walt, Eastwood is the embodiment of old school bluster who eschews political correctness and meaningless small talk. His position changes as he gets involved in a turf war between his neighbors and an Asian gang.
