Thoughts on Gran Torino

Tonight, my roomie and I went to see Gran Torino, the new Clint Eastwood movie. It is believed this will be Eastwood's last film as an actor. If it is he makes one hell of an exit. I don't think most people in the theater saw it coming. I won't give away the ending but you can draw your own conclusions.

Well, let me put it to you this way. I overheard one woman state the ending of this film was not unlike the ending of John Wayne's last film. Her observation was a perceptive one. John Wayne's last film was The Shootist. If you've seen it then I think you get the idea. If not then it will be well worth your time to see Gran Torino. It might not be what you expect but you won't soon forget it.
