We gave it a B

Call Gran Torino Dirty Harry: The Twilight Years. Clint Eastwood growls as a crotchety Korean War vet whose Detroit neighborhood is being overrun with Hmong immigrants from Southeast Asia. Needless to say, he ain’t pleased. But when one of them, a teenage boy (Vang), is harassed and beaten, Clint goes all Magnum Force, dishing out old-school payback from the business end of a shotgun. EXTRAS include clips about classic cars, where we learn that Eastwood’s first set of wheels was a ’32 Chevy coupe he picked up for 25 bucks. B
