Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
In Gran Torino, Eastwood took on the moral issues that screenwriter Gary Young and first-time director Daniel Barber studiously avoid. It's the difference between riveting and repellent.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 02.03.2011
It's simply the tale of a man who decides to do something and sticks to his guns, so to speak. That the man is played by Michael Caine is what makes it worthwhile.Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 06.24.2010
Caine's impeccable performance gives the film unlikely stature. It's impossible to imagine the movie without him.Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 06.24.2010
The film ranks right up there with Sleuth, Get Carter and Mona Lisa as being amongst Cainea(TM)s toughest and best performances.Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 06.24.2010
