Format: DVD
I saw Road to perdition on the back of good reviews when it came out at the cinema but knew little of what it was about. I can see why it got such good reviews as the acting is superb and is well directed. Basically a young boy realises that his dad is a hitman for the local ganster in 1930's Capone era. Can't reveal much more without spoling the plot.
The film does come across as quite dark and broody, it's a bit slow to start but 20mins in it picks up and you will be engrossed until the end, which however is a bit predictable. Overall a good film well worth watching.

I have just finished watching the film and it goes straight into my top 10 all time favourites.
It's a thinking man's gangster film with an Irish flavour rather than the usual Italian.
All performances were top rate but what I enjoyed most was the atmosphere of the film with dark rainy nights and beautiful scenery and music.
The film was in danger of being too dark and depressing but the storyline of Tom Hanks teaching his son to drive provided the needed uplift.
I did see the final twist before it happened which was unfortunate but nevertheless a brilliant film.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Road to Perdition has a great story that's carried out by a fantastic cast. I've always felt it's a little too short though keeping it off my 'greatest' list. Still, it's a must for those that haven't seen it though. It is a gangster movie but then again it's not... part gangster, part father getting to know his son.

The transfer is good in that it improves the colours and levels of darkness (many dark scenes at the start of the movie). Lots of grain (as intended). It's worthy of the upgrade from DVD if it's reasonably priced (<£13) and you own a large TV. Audio is great, much more atmospheric than the DVD.

Another cover that doesn't give the languages but here's what are actually on the Blu-Ray:
Languages: English DTS master; Italian DTS; Castillian Spanish
Subs: English; Danish; Finnish; Italian; Norwegian; Swedish; Castillian Spanish; Croatian; Icelandic; Slovakian;

Format: DVD
This is a sweeping epic, with some amazing imagery and some superb acting talent on show. Its great to see Paul Newman back for another film along with Jude Law who plays a total wacko crime photographer/hitman and plays the role with relish. But its Hanks who steals the show, the man cant seem to do wrong in the world of movies over the past 10 years of so. I feel this is his strongest role to date, and probably his hardest as he plays a man who's on one side a father, and on the other a cold blooded killer. This is an absolute gem of a film, and one everyone should rush out and see. Sam Mendes deserves a well earned pat on the back.

19 of 23 people found the following review helpful By Mary Whipple HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 27 Nov 2004
Format: DVD
This suspense-filled story of Michael Sullivan (Tom Hanks), directed by Sam Mendes, has as much style and cinematic brilliance as American Beauty, though it is much darker. Sullivan, the adoptive son of John Rooney (Paul Newman), is a cold-blooded killer working for his crime boss "father" in the winter of 1931, when his own twelve-year-old son, Mike Jr., inadvertently witnesses a "hit" in which his father participates. Subsequently, the Sullivans, father and son, take off for Chicago to meet with Frank Nitti (Stanley Tucci), underworld lieutenant to Al Capone. Mike Sullivan, Sr. is also hoping to get to Perdition, an appropriately named Midwestern town, so he can leave is son with his sister-in-law. Sadistic hitman Harlan Maguire (Jude Law), who enjoys photographing the death throes of his victims, is soon on the Sullivans' trail to the midwest.
Conrad L. Hall, to whom the film is dedicated, uses photography to its fullest advantage, winning a posthumous Academy Award for his cinematography. Shot in winter, the film preserves the flavor of early black and white films, with sharp, black and white contrasts, and the use of dark, somber colors, when colors are used at all. Snow, ice, rain, and fog perpetuate the cold darkness of the scenes, and Hall's use of architectural framing is stunning, particularly his repeated use of windows. He keeps the scenes simple, often focusing on individual characters in contexts which reveal their emotional states. In one memorable scene, for example, light from a streetlight outside a window casts the shadow of rain on an interior wall, suggesting both tears and cleansing.
Newman is terrific as an aging mob boss, playing his part with just the right mix of frailty and cruelty (for which he won the Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor).

Personally, anything Thomas Newman is involved in is always moving and beautiful anyway. But throw in a cast of brilliant actors, gorgeous cinematography, realistic gangsters and a moving father-son storyline and you have the recipe for an awesome film. I own the DVD and Original Soundtrack, and whether I watch the film or listen to the score I can't help but feel enriched in everyway. There's somethign about this film and the score which just strikes a nerve...i dunno...I recommend this highly to anyone who has feeling.
Peace.

I absolutely hate all reviewers who think this film is style over substance and whilst it has a dark "sheen", has no guts. What rubbish! This film is not supposed to shock so much, if you want to see violence for the sake of it, the lead actor being a total bastard, then don't watch this film as you obviously can not look beyond visuals! HOWEVER, if you want a film that makes you think and looks at people as individuals and is ultimately about the father/son relationship, then enjoy this well acted and in my opinion gutsy film albeit with beautiful, old fashioned storytelling values.
