Gangsters. Parents. Children. Honor. 'Road to Perdition' is all this and more, perhaps too perfect or too calculated, but with great cinema in it. [Full review in Spanish]

So is Perdition still a must-see? No question. But it's tough to fuss about it much when a picture is this fussy.

What makes the movie pay off is moving pictures of real action and of intimate scenes between man and boy that are all the more moving for being understated.

The top-billed actors deliver: Hanks with his resonant reserve and Newman in conveying Rooney's failed attempt to live up to his self-image as the ultimate just and loving patriarch. [Blu-ray]

It's Newman who really stands out. Despite his advanced years -- he's 77 -- the man still has remarkable presence.

While crisply edited and unindulgent, Mendes' work is gratifyingly old-school in its rejection of modern-day stylistic agitation, the better to achieve a slow but inexorable build to its climax.

Hanks and Newman are the personification of anguish and torn loyalty in a gripping, violent film that is part character study and part cat-and-mouse chase with classic western embellishments.

Road is so beautiful, so well composed and so tidy in its sense of justice that it never quite gets its hands dirty enough to evoke any true emotion.
