A dark and harrowing story of redemption with knockout performances by Hank (playing relatively against type) and Newman. The real star is the brilliant cinematography by Conrad L. Hall that plays with elements of shadows and light in a strikingly thematic way. A unique and touching crime film with focus on character first.

Tom Hanks in a very rare role as Michael Sullivan, Sr., a mob enforcer who is also a father of 2. It also stars 2 high caliber actors such as Jude Law as Harlen Maguire and Paul Newman as John Rooney, boss of Michael Sullivan Sr. The cinematography and musical score went hand in hand in this beautifully tragic picture. Themes of father and son relationship, loyalty and effects of the choices you make are present. Storytelling was really smooth and the action was good. Road to Perdition could have been better in terms of pacing and depressing conclusion, still it entertained.

An excellent film directed by the outstanding Sam Mendes. Jude Law and Tom Hanks shine in this crime thriller. A great watch.

"Road To Perdition" by Yojimbo

Enforcer Tom Hanks is forced to go on the run when his son witnesses a mob hit in his gloriously photographed gangster related road movie from Sam Mendes. In fact little about the film can be faulted technically; all the performances are first rate, it looks absolutely gorgeous and the score is haunting and beautiful. The brief explosions of violence counterpoint the warmth of the father-son relationship well and Mendes' particular brand of visual elegance is particularly pleasing. In fact it's hard to believe that the film is an adaptation of a comic book as it all feels very adult, preferring to explore the characters and their relationships to the kind of comic strip violence you'd usually associate with the genre, which makes for an unusually moving story considering the story revolve...
