The acting of Tom Hanks as father who would do anything for his son risks his life against a head boss man(Paul Newman) that was a father to Tom Hanks but steps the line because the boss man's son is corrupt is quite a story twist and the feelings and actions that Paul Newman and Tom Hank made so believeable was amazon and genius the way they were able to play the roles. The twist with Jude law was just something else. A Third character would pop in while you are caught up with the main plot was just something else especially the character Jude Law plays is so good that weird, mysterious, and some what unnatural type of character. Over all the movie plot, the actors,and the directing are simply legendary. Beautiful done.

What happened to the Oscar.. loss of memory. Tom Hanks is great, the story is interesting. Dare I say it's the best mob film since the Godfather film a few years back. See it! That's an offer you should not refuse.

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

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.

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

This is one of, if not, the best movie I have ever seen! It had everything anyone could want in a film, and is defenatly the best mafia film since the Godfather. If I didn't know any better, I would say it was better than The Godfather. I've been waiting for a release date on this film, and I have it on reserve. I loved this film and I know you will too.

A brilliant and lasting crime drama set in Depression-Era America with such superb actors as Tom Hanks, Jude Law (who was very twisted in this flick), and the always dominating Paul Newman. Tom Hanks was the morally corrupted Michael Sullivan and enforcer for John Rooney, Irish mob boss to the Italian stars in Chicago. Newman was purposefully subdued in his role in this revenge drama where his son betrays everybody, the not-so-scrupulous Daniel Craig playing Connor Rooney. Sam Mendes' most mature film.

Wow. What a film. This is for fans of The Godfather. Tom Hanks plays, yet again, another great role. The movie is very sad and pretty violent at times. Go see it; it's a movie to remember.

Movies shows every aspect of the depression- from the underground brothels/nightclub to going into chicago to the farm house going towards perdition. But what more can you have with Tom Hanks/Jude Law. Definately worthwhile to rent.
