Road to Perdition 2002 drama crime
Available for streaming on Prime Video
When family man Mike Sullivan (Tom Hanks) goes to work, he takes his hat, keys, wallet and a Colt 1911. When he expects a really hard day at the office he packs a takedown Tommy Gun with a drum magazine. It is very rare for a film to be filled with outstanding performances by multiple A-list actors. This is one of them. Equally amazing is that the actors are, more often than not, acting against type. The story is dark & grim, there is no humor, no romance, it is emotionally cold, none of the characters are good guys – doesn’t matter, this is a compelling movie with first class acting, skillful cinematography, unforgettable somber soundtrack, and an impressive full-scale production that re-creates gangster infested Chicago of the 1930’s.
