The first time I saw this movie was at a friend's house on his home theatre. As soon as I heard the beautiful Thomas Newman score and observed the gorgeous cinematography, I knew I would love this film. The acting is excellent and the story intriguing. There are many images which stay with me, especially the gun fight in the rain and Tom Hanks subsequent trip to the hotel to settle the score. Very powerful. This film has an old-time, epic movie feel to me. If you enjoy good cinema, then you may enjoy this movie.

Format: DVD
Dark, moody and tragic, ROAD TO PERDITION is a masterfully made and engrossing film. Its most powerful scene is when Tom Hanks as the hitman Michael Sullivan takes out Paul Newman's hitmen on a raindrenched street; there is no dialogue, no accompanying soundtrack, just slowmotion of the shootings and the knowledge Newman has of what lies in store. It's ultimately chilling and fascinating in its execution.
Tyler Hoechlin shines as Michael's young son who witnesses his father at work in the execution of a member of Newman's brood. Ciaran Hinds (so good in "Veronica Guerin" and "Sum of all Fears") is the victim; the killer is Newman's spoiled son, played well by Daniel Craig. When Craig has Hanks' wife and youngest son murdered, this tale of vengeance spins into its ultimately tragic denouement.
Jude Law is frighteningly chilling in his portrayal of a photographer who loves to photograph the dead, and is hired to take out Hanks. Stanley Tucci is superb as Frank Nitti, Al Capone's henchman.
Tom Hanks is excellent, too, as a father who hasn't taken the time to know his son, and whose life of killing catches up with him. Watching him grow in his love for his son makes for some emotionally devastating scenes, and the ending is powerful.
ROAD TO PERDITION is first-class film making, beautifully filmed and scored. I found it to be very moving.

"Road to Perdition" is Greek-type tragedy set in Depression-Era America with mobsters as his heroes, or anti-heroes. Tom Hanks plays Michael Sullivan, a mob enforcer who works for John Rooney, played wonderfully by Paul Newman. Tyler Hoechlin is Hank's son, Michael Jr, who on the one hand is the omnipresent narrator, but also represents the tragic flaw of his father. Men who name their sons after themselves presumably hope they will turn out like them. However Michael Sr. does not want his son involved in his evil ways, but Michael Jr. inevitably gets caught up when he witnesses one of his father's murders. This sets in motion a chain of events which ultimately lead to father and son fleeing on the road to perdition, or road to hell. What comes about is the film's central theme, and question: Is it possible for fathers to spare their sons from the costs of their sins?
The film has some great performances, particularly from Newman, and Jude Law who plays a dispicable hitman/crime scene photographer. The dull colored costumes fit perfectly with the bleak time period, the production design authentically recreates 1930s Chicago, and the Thomas Newman score is somber and haunting. Yet what stands out is the amazing cinematography from the 'Master of Darkness,' Conrad L. Hall. Never has such a bleak picture looked so vibrant. Hall creates a limbo of shadows, half seen faces, and rain-soaked frames. Each shot presents a visceral chill that reverberates throughout the film. Brilliant work! And in his sophomore effort following the acclaimed, "American Beauty," Sam Mendes proves that he is a master craftsman.
"Road to Perdition" does have many laurels and is a good picture overall. However, my problem with it is that it plays too much like a Greek tragedy.

A different approach to comic media has spawn an unbelievable guideline to the making of one of the best gangster movie and also one of the best comic book adaptation since THE CROW. Well done indeed.

Director: Sam Mendes
Cast: Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, Jude Law, Tyler Hoechlin, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Stanley Tucci, Daniel Graig.
Running Time: 117 minutes.
Rated R for violence and language.
Director Sam Mendes has the extraordinary talent of weaving stories on film that can be used on many different levels. His first main feature, "American Beauty" was an exhilerating tale that on one level was a satire of surban life, while also a dark, melancholic depection of the meaning of life and how beautiful each small essence of it can be. "Road to Perdition", his next feature, has a simlar tone to it and is a film that is layered similar to an onion.
Tom Hanks is good (yes, only good--his efforts in films such as "Apollo 13", "Castaway", and "The Green Mile" were slightly better) as a gangster who works for one of the most powerful (and crooked) men in the city (played by Paul Newman in a limited role, unfortunately). When his son (Tyler Hoechlin) witnesses an accidental murder of one of his father's colleagues, the duo must leave town in order to survive the aftermath of the ordeal. Jude Law gives a great performance as the eerie photographer who is hired to not only track down the father and son, but kill them because of the information they are not supposed to know.
"Road to Perdition" is a powerful tale that captures the essence of the extraordinary possibilites presented in a father-son bond. It is a film that shows the corruptness of the business world at the time (the film was depicted around the time of the depression), but ultimately unfolds as a journey about vengeance, redemption, and love.
