Movie review: Gran Torino

Movie spoiler alert: if you haven't watched it, don't read this post if you want to retain the surprise ending. The movie is R rated for four letter words and some blood/violence. And smoking, of cource.

What they called "manly" in the movie was a bit funny but forgetable enough.

The hero, Walt Kowalski, shows what real men do: take care of the bad guys, protect the innocents and leave a positive legacy. In this story Walt dies heroically, but with an asterisk since he knew he was terminally ill. We all die but one's willingness to die for other(s) shouldn't be conditioned by how soon we are expected to die.
