Gran Torino ★★★

Luckily Eastwood is in nearly ever scene in Gran Torino, because everything that isn't Eastwood is pretty dreadful. The character of Walt and Eastwood's performance are stellar throughout, and he is consistently magnetic. It's a shame this script and the other actors are no better than a low-grade sitcom, and it's view of "street" dialogue is laughable. It's just too un-even to be a success, as the experience of watching it makes you temporarily bi-polar.
