    One of Tom Hanks Greatest Movies

    Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, and Jude Law. Who else can you ask for? This is possibly one of the better Tom Hanks movies. He was a superburb actor in this movie and Jude Law's crazyness adds suspense to it. Based in early time, i suggest you buy it.... i know i have. :)djoey

    Great movie falls shorts of my expectations

    This was a great movie don't get me wrong but it the critics made it to like the godfather (not many movies are). Neverthe less Tom Hanks and Paul Newman turn in class A performances but the films best perfomances are made by Jude Law as the Hitman/photographer and by Tyler Hoechlin as Tom Hank's son. The Cinematography was superb, they did a magneficent job recreating depression era Chicago. This is a great movie, even though it is no Godfather it is still a great accomplishment and well worth your viewing

    Featuring the Real Ol Blue Eyes

    At least a few readers have watched Robert Blake grow from Red Ryder's kid sidekick to whatever he has grown to now , and a few more have seen Ron Howard grow from Opie Taylor to Ritchie Cunningham to Oscar-winning Director Ron Howard. Part of the fun in seeing Road to Perdition is predicting the direction of the career path of Tyler Hoechlin, who plays the role of Mike Sullivan, Jr. to Tom Hanks' Mike Sullivan, Sr. This lad is at least half the glue which holds the film together. The other half is Paul Newman's character. If Newman lives to 100+, there will always be a role which he can land and master. The magic of Road to Perdition is that is lives in a milieu of grim depression, but does not drag the viewer along with it. Gray wintry days in depression-rident Qual Cities, Ill. don't extinguish the light of this movie which somehow sends a message of hope and anticipation for the future. Some viewers have already seen the beacon of Hanks' potential as a serious actor, but for many, Road to Perdition marks the first hint that Hanks is anything but a one-dimensional performer. Several supporting actors and a few more bit-part players round out the cast which strengthen the impact of the film. The reader is urged to pay close attention to all the performers.There are some names here which you are going to be hearing again---and again.
