It’s a movie about a road to a place. A place that is only mentioned once in the same movie. It’s amazing!
Road to Perdition is a special movie. Great acting, amazing music, and a neat story. But it’s also an adaptation of a graphic novel, and as such it has some comic book flair to it at parts, but mostly gets by on Tom Hanks.
With an incredible cast (Tom Hanks, Jude Law, Paul Newman, Daniel Craig), this is a flick that becomes quickly more than just period piece as your watch it. The story is deep and interesting. The violence is great, and there is a high body count. The period piece elements are also quite wonderful, including the streets of Chicago lines with vintage cars making for an incredible look on screen.
If you haven’t had a chance to see Road to Perdition, I suggest finding a copy or catching it online. You’ll certainly enjoy it.
