Gran Torino

Gran Torino (2008)

Ending / spoiler

(11 votes)

Walt locks Tao in the basement and goes to the gang's house. They come outside and draw their guns, and Walt takes out a cigarette. When he reaches for his air cav lighter they shoot him multiple times and he falls down dead. The police arrest the gang while Tao and his sister look on. At the funeral, Father Janovich repeats what Walt said to him about being a 27 year old virgin, and that Walt always called it as he saw it. At the will reading, Walt leaves his house to the church and his Gran Torino to Tao. The final shot is of Tao driving down the coast while Clint Eastwood himself sings in the background.

Other mistake: When Walt and Thao go into the barbershop, the barber gets up and puts on his barber jacket and zips it up. As the camera returns to the barber each time, the jacket zipper is at a different location.

Walt Kowalski: I've been called a lot of things, but never funny.

More quotes from Gran Torino

Question: Would a Korean war veteran be allowed to keep his Garand rifle? I assume that the film wants to depict the rifle and the Colt pistol as being the very ones he had in Korea. Wouldn't that be like a lot of guys stowing M16s in their old footlockers?

Answer: Well, a lot of veterans actually buy their weapons once they have retired, since they have the constitutional right to keep and bear those weapons. However, I don't think it is said in the movie that those arms were exactly the ones Kowalsky used during the war.

Actually, yes he did say that it was the one he carried. When Tao asked what it was like to kill a man, Walt says I shot the kid in the face with that rifle you were holding earlier.
