Road to Perdition is the immaculately directed, violent gangster piece from Sam Mendes, who adapted the story from the graphic novel series of the same name, and boy does it leave an impression! The film stars Tom Hanks, playing against-type, as a mob enforcer who is forced to go on the run when a tragedy befalls his family after his son witnesses something he wasn't supposed to see. Him and his son then work as a team robbing the crime boss's bank accounts until they can come to an understanding, all the while being pursued by a ruthless assassin played brilliantly by Jude Law. The acting in this film is extraordinary with nearly every main cast member playing out of their comfort zone with Hanks being a skilled killer, Paul Newman playing the conflicted mob boss, Daniel Craig playing the skiddish and jealous heir to the crime family, and of course Jude Law as the psychopathic hitman who revels in taking photos of the dead. This is a truly arresting piece of filmmaking and with Oscar-winning cinematography, the images jump from the pages of the graphic novel to the screen in great detail and many of the shots will stick in my mind permanently! It's a great story, with well-rounded and memorable characters, features flawless direction from Sam Mendes, and the gorgeous cinematography is truly an impressive feat!
