Thanks, Ken for a well written and thoughtful review!

Gran Torino is easily my favorite film of last year and one of my favorite dramas from any year. If this is indeed Mr. Eastwood's final on screen performance, he went out on a high note in my opinion.

The marketing people behind this film did a terific job selling this as an action film - they certainly duped me! All in all a good film. Just don't sell it to me as something it's not.
